Amec awarded services pact for Kuwait refineries
International engineering and project management company Amec was awarded a contract by Kuwait National Petroleum Co. (KNPC) to provide project
engineering and management services for the Mina Al Ahmadi, Mina Abdullah and Shuaiba oil refineries in Kuwait.
The five-year call-off contract, which has an optional one-year extension, is worth up to 72 million Kuwaiti Dinars (approximately £158 million).
It was won in competitive tender and follows Amec's successful delivery of the previous contract held since 2007.
Amec will be responsible for a range of engineering and management services including feasibility studies, front end engineering design (FEED), project
management consultancy (PMC) services and training of Kuwaiti engineers.
The contract also involves providing studies and FEEDs to KNPCs local marketing
and projects department on a call-off basis for its in-country petroleum storage and transportation facilities.
I am delighted that KNPC have again selected Amec to deliver this important work," said Alan Armstrong, Amec's operations
director in Kuwait. "This is a testament to our relationship since 2007 and our ability to apply our global design, engineering and project
management expertise to deliver complex projects anywhere in the world."
These refineries and KNPCs local marketing
assets are strategically significant in Kuwaits energy security and in providing revenues from their hydrocarbons exports," he added.
