MIDOR award MIDOR refinery expansion and modernisation contract to TechnipFMC

TechnipFMC has signed a major Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract by Middle East  Oil Refinery (MIDOR) for the modernization and expansion of their existing complex near Alexandria, Egypt.

This EPC contract covers the debottlenecking of existing units as well  as the delivery of new units including a Crude Distillation Unit, a  Vacuum Distillation Unit, a hydrogen production facility based on our  steam reforming technology, as well as various process units,  interconnecting, offsites and utilities.

Starting in 2022, the modernized complex will exclusively produce Euro V  products, with a 60% increase in the refinery’s original capacity to  160,000 barrels per day of crude oil.

Nello Uccelletti, President of TechnipFMC’s Onshore/Offshore business,  stated: “This award demonstrates our long-standing relationship with  MIDOR which started in 2001, with the delivery of their grassroot  refinery. Over the years, we have supported our client with studies and  engineering services. In 2015, we finalized a joint agreement with SACE  to ensure an export credit facility to support a major expansion and  modernization project, while carrying out early works including FEED and  open book estimate. We are proud to support our client MIDOR in  improving the production quality of their refinery, considered the most  advanced of the Mediterranean region and African continent.”

The company is working with MIDOR to complete the remaining conditions  precedent to enable project work to commence. The Company will include  the contract award in its inbound when all the requirements are  fulfilled.

Moreover, in the spirit of cooperation with the Egyptian government,  TechnipFMC has also been awarded a contract for the basic design of the  Assiut refinery Hydrocracker complex.
