Foster Wheeler awarded EPC contracts by Pemex for coker slide valves
Foster Wheeler AG announced today that subsidiaries of its Global Engineering and Construction Group, together with a joint venture partner for the project, Altair Strickland LLC, have been awarded contracts by Pemex Refinación (Pemex) for the engineering, design, procurement, construction, commissioning and startup of slide valve systems on the delayed coker units at two refineries in Mexico: the Hector R. Lara Sosa refinery located in Cadereyta, Nueva Leon, and the Francisco I. Madero refinery in Ciudad Madero, Tamaulipas. Both projects are scheduled to be completed during refinery turnarounds in 2015.

Foster Wheeler brings to these projects extensive experience in the design and delivery of retrofits to delayed cokers, a robust track record in executing projects in Mexico, and impressive technical expertise in heavy crude processing.
