HOUSTON, June 8 – Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Ltd. (MRPL) has let a contract to Technip, Paris, for work associated with an expansion of its refinery in Mangalore, India.

Technip will provide design, engineering, supply, and installation of fired heaters for crude distillation, vacuum distillation, delayed coking, and petrochemical fluid catalytic cracking units.

MRPL in February said it was expanding the nameplate capacity of the refinery, which has two hydrocrackers and two continuous catalytic reformers, to 236,000 b/d from 194,000 b/d. It said it had been operating the facility at 115-130% of capacity for 4 years.

Technip described its work as part of a third phase of expansion that would push crude capacity to 300,000 b/d. It estimated the value of its contract at €25 million.

MRPL is a subsidiary of Oil & Natural Gas Corp. Ltd., which owns 71.62% of the company.
