Petrofac was awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract by Malaysia's Petronas for a refinery package in Petronas’ refinery and petrochemicals integrated development (RAPID) project in Pengerang, Johor.

Worth more than $500 million, the competitively tendered lump-sum EPCC scope of work includes three sulfur recovery units, two amine regeneration units, two sour water stripping units, a liquid sulfur storage units and a sulfur solidification package unit.

Located in Pengerang, within the state of Johor, Malaysia; Petronas’ RAPID project is the largest liquid-based green-field downstream undertaking in Malaysia. It will have a 300,000 bpd refinery and will supply naphtha and liquid petroleum gas (LPG) feedstock for the RAPID petrochemical complex.

RAPID is part of the bigger Petronas Pengerang integrated complex (PIC) development, which comprises of RAPID and its associated facilities including the Pengerang co-generation plant (PCP), re-gasification terminal 2 (RGT2), air separation unit (ASU), raw water supply project (PAMER), crude and product tanks (SPV2) as well as central and shared utilities and facilities (UF). 

PIC is poised for its refinery start-up by early 2019.

“This award represents another significant step in building our capability in the Asia-Pacific region," said Subramanian Sarma, managing director of Petrofac's onshore engineering and construction business. "Malaysia is a core country for us, Petronas a key customer and we have a substantial physical presence in the country to support our ongoing projects and future aspirations.”
