Houston, June 24 -- Mariisky NPZ Ltd. awarded a contract to Foster Wheeler Italiana SpA, Milan, for the expansion of the Mari-El refinery's capacity to 90,000 b/sd from 27,000 b/sd, scheduled for start-up in 2012.

According to Foster Wheeler, Mariisky plans to install a new train, which will include new crude and vacuum distillation units, hydrocracking, hydrodesulfurization, amine and sulfur recovery units, a solvent deasphalting unit, a hydrogen production unit, and sour water stripping facilities.

The expansion also will include a power plant that will burn asphalt from the solvent deasphalting unit to produce steam for electric power generation both for the refinery and for export to a public network.

Foster Wheeler will define the design basis, undertake the basic design package for nonlicensed process units, power plant, utilities and offsites, and front-end engineering design (FEED) for the entire expansion project.
