Contract let for Vietnam’s Nghi Son refinery

Nghi Son Refinery & Petrochemical LLC, through a contractor, has let a contract to a subsidiary of Foster Wheeler for two hydrogen reformers to be constructed at its 200,000-b/d refinery and petrochemical complex in Thanh Hoa Province in Vietnam (OGJ Online, June 7, 2013).

Under the contract, for which no value was disclosed, Foster Wheeler will design and supply reformers capable of producing a combined total of 145,000 tonnes/year of hydrogen, according to Foster Wheeler.

Delivery of the reformers is scheduled to be completed during fourth-quarter 2015, Foster Wheeler said.

The $9 billion Nghi Son refinery, currently under construction (OGJ Online, Dec. 2, 2013), will process Kuwaiti crude oil and is slated to begin commercial operation in 2017.

Foster Wheeler’s global engineering and construction group will manage and administer the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor consortium through completion of performance testing (OGJ Online, July 30, 2013).

The Nghi Son complex is a joint venture of Vietnam Oil & Gas Group, Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd., Kuwait Petroleum Europe BV, and Mitsui Chemicals Inc.
