JGC led JV awarded contract for refinery and petrochemical complex in Vietnam

JGC Corporation, Chiyoda Corporation, Technip, and South Korean contractors GS Engineering & Construction and SK Engineering & Construction today jointly announced that the joint venture, formed by JGC, Chiyoda, Technip, GS and SK, has received notification of the award of a contract for the Nghi Son refinery and petrochemicals complex in the Nghi Son economic zone in northern Vietnam.  The contract was awarded by the Nghi Son Refinery Petrochemical Limited Liability Company, a joint venture between Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd (35.1%), Kuwait Petroleum International (35.1%), Vietnam Oil and Gas Corporation (25.0%), and Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. (4.8%). The lump-sum turnkey contract calls for the engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and commissioning work for an oil refinery with a production capacity of 200,000 barrels per day. The complex, scheduled for completion in late 2016, will be located in the Thanh Hoa Province in Vietnam, 200 km south of the capital city of Hanoi. The value of the contract was not disclosed.

This project, which is being promoted by Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd., Kuwait Petroleum International, Vietnam Oil and Gas Corporation, and Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. is a grassroots oil refinery and petrochemical complex project in Vietnam.  This project will be the second constructed in Vietnam, and is aimed at satisfying increasing demands for petroleum products to support the progress of Vietnam's motorization, as well as produce petrochemicals for export. Together with Vietnam's first refinery, the Dung Quat refinery (constructed by a consortium of JGC, Technip and others, and completed in 2009), the Nghi Son refinery and petrochemical complex will be a major pillar supporting the country's economic development.

JGC has been targeting marketing activities toward Southeast Asian countries, including Vietnam, and has been concurrently working on strengthening and expanding JGC Vietnam, an EPC subsidiary of JGC established in Vietnam in 2009. Part of JGC's portion of this project is scheduled to be constructed by JGC Vietnam. 

JGC plans to become involved in many more oil refining and petrochemicals projects in Vietnam in the future. JGC has been responsible for the construction of more than fifty oil refineries, and JGC and JGC Vietnam are focusing marketing activities on Southeast Asia in hopes of contributing to building Vietnam's industrial base and furthering economic development.
