Amec Foster Wheeler wins FEED contract in Kuwaitby Jochebed Menon on Mar 12, 2017
Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract by Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC), a subsidiary of the Kuwait Petroleum Company (KPC).
The contract covers front-end engineering design (FEED) leading to project management consultancy (PMC) for the project.
The British engineering and project management firm will work on integrating the project between PIC’s Olefins III, Aromatics II, and ZOR Refinery in Kuwait.
The six-year contract builds on Amec Foster Wheelers' significant expertise in petrochemicals and refinery integration.
The new petrochemical facility will be integrated with the new Al-Zour 615,000 barrels per day refinery, which will be one of the largest refineries in the region.
John Pearson, president, oil, gas, and chemicals, Amec Foster Wheeler, said: This award reflects our expertise, as well as our successful track record in large, complex FEEDs, and project management.
“It is directly aligned to our strategy of extending from FEED into later phase scopes in downstream, and to building on our existing strength in chemicals.
“I'm also delighted that this adds to our existing portfolio of work we are delivering for KPC's group of companies, with multiple PMC contracts underway.”
