By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Oct. 26 -- BP Products North America Inc. has awarded Fluor Corp. several major packages, valued at a combined $3 billion, for upgrades to increase Canadian heavy oil processing capacity at its 399,000 b/cd Whiting refinery in northwest Indiana.

The work scope includes the overall integrated program management and construction management; plus the independent engineering, procurement, and fabrication of three major work packages, including a revamped crude distillation unit, a gas oil hydrotreater, and support infrastructure facilities.

The front-end engineering design, the initial award valued at $300 million, is currently under way.

The project will increase capacity for coking, hydrogen production, hydrotreating, and sulfur recovery. Construction is expected to start in 2007 and be completed by 2011 (OGJ Online, Sept. 25, 2006, Newsletter).
