Samref lets engineering contract for Yanbu refinery

Saudi Aramco-Mobil Refinery Co. Ltd. (Samref), a 50-50 joint venture of Saudi Aramco and ExxonMobil Corp. subsidiary Mobil Yanbu Refining Co. Inc., has let a 5-year framework contract to Kentz Corp. Ltd. for general engineering services at the Samref refinery in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.

Under the agreement, Kentz, through its local subsidiary Saudi Arabian Kentz Co. Ltd., will provide design engineers, technicians, planners, and requisite support professionals at the refinery, the global engineering firm said in a news release.

No details regarding either the value of the contract or the scope of work to be completed were disclosed.
