Mazeikiai lets hydrotreater contract

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Feb. 22 -- AB Mazeikiu Nafta has let a $43 million contract to Foster Wheeler Iberia SA for detailed engineering, materials procurement, and construction of an FCC gasoline-selective hydrotreater at its 263,420-b/cd Mazeikiai refinery in northwestern Lithuania—the only refinery in the Baltic states.

The new facility comprises two units: a 32,000-b/sd sulfur hydrogenation unit and a 22,000-b/sd hydrodesulfurization unit. The project will help the refinery meet European Union specifications taking effect in 2009 for gasoline sulfur content.

Mechanical completion is slated for fourth quarter 2006.
