Afipsky Refinery has let a contract to Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. covering a basic engineering package for an amine regenerator unit, sour water stripper, and an expected 55 ton/day sulfur recovery unit.
Capacity of the refinery when the En+ Group sold it to the private NefteGazIndustria Group in 2010 was reported at 72,000 b/d. Located in the Krasnodarskij Region of Russia, the refinery serves local markets.
Jacobs Engineering said units covered by its contract are part of a refinery extension project including a hydrotreater and visbreaker unit.
It will work with the engineering firm Giprogazoochistka, Moscow, a specialist in gas treating and sulfur recovery units.
