Fluor Corp. chosen for engineering project
Kuwait National Petroleum Co. (KNPC) selected Fluor Corp. as the preferred bidder for two engineering, procurement and construction packages.
Facilities in the two packages will include a variety of key process units, utilities and infrastructure for the new Al-Zour oil refinery project in Kuwait that is expected to produce 615,000 barrels per day, according to Taco de Haan, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Europe, Africa and Middle East. He added that Fluor booked its $2.6 billion portion of the contract in the third quarter of 2015.
“Fluor is proud to continue our long-standing relationship with KNPC, which spans more than five decades, and to become part of this prestigious and strategically important Al-Zour project,” Haan said. “From the onset, and throughout every phase of the project, our focus will be on the safe and efficient construction, commissioning and start-up of this new refinery.”
Fluor is leading the joint venture, known as FDH JV, which consists of Fluor, Daewoo Engineering and Construction, and Hyundai Heavy Industries. The FDH JV is currently executing one package in the KNPC Clean Fuels project and will begin activities on the newly awarded Al-Zour packages soon.
Fluor Corp., through its subsidiaries, provides engineering, procurement, construction, fabrication and modularization, commissioning and maintenance, and project management services worldwide.
