French engineering giant Technip has won a project management consultancy deal alongside Japan's Unico to upgrade a refinery in the city of Basra in southern Iraq.

The contract, which was awarded by the Ministry of Oil's South Refineries Company, is an EPC deal that will see it increase the petroleum production capacity at the plant following the introduction of a new fluid catalytic cracking unit. It is part of the Iraq Government's plan to service a growing need for hydrocarbon products.

Technip said that the award also follows on from an earlier deal won in June 2013 for it to project manage the upgrade of a refinery in Karbala.

Regional president Nicoletta Giadrossi said: “We are delighted to help SRC and the Iraqi’s Ministry of Oil achieve their goals and business objectives, while meeting safety, cost, schedule and quality targets".
