Amec Foster Wheeler wins Al-Zour contract

Amec Foster Wheeler announced today the award of a contract by Petrochemical Industries Company K.S.C. (PIC), a subsidiary of the Kuwait Petroleum Company (KPC), for the integration project between its Olefins III, Aromatics II and ZOR Refinery in the State of Kuwait. The contract covers Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) leading to Project Management Consultancy (PMC) for the project.

The six-year contract builds on Amec Foster Wheelers' significant expertise in petrochemicals and refinery integration, alongside the impressive track record of delivering PMC services to KPC companies in Kuwait .

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.

"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." John Pearson, President, Oil, Gas & Chemicals, Amec Foster Wheeler.
