Technip-Coflexip wins Ruwais refinery expansion

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, July 9 -- Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Co. has awarded a major, lump sum turnkey contract valued at $480 million to Technip-Coflexip Group, Paris, for the expansion of its Ruwais refinery in Abu Dhabi.

The refinery operator, a unit of state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Co., announced the 500,000 b/d expansion plans in late 2000 (OGJ Online, Oct. 19, 2000).

The contractor will modernize existing facilities and add new units for the production of unleaded gasoline and low-sulfur gas oil, including heavy and light naphtha hydrotreating units, a hydrogen sulfide removal unit and sulfur recovery units, a CCR reformer, a gas oil hydrotreater, and an isomerization unit.

The project also includes revamping existing kerosine and gas oil hydrotreaters and an LPG amine treater as well as expansion of utility systems and offsite facilities.

Technip-Coflexip's engineering centers in Rome and Abu Dhabi will provide project management, detailed engineering, equipment and materials procurement, construction management, construction, precommissioning, commissioning, and training.

The project, which does not require any third-party financing, will begin immediately and be completed in July 2005.
