Kuwait lets second lump-sum turnkey contract for Clean Fuels Project

Kuwait National Petroleum Co. (KNPC) has let another lump-sum turnkey contract to a second consortium of oil and gas service providers for work related to its Clean Fuels Project (CFP) at the Mina Abdullah refinery in southern Kuwait (OGJ Online, Feb. 19, 2014; Feb. 12, 2014; Dec. 6, 2013; Apr. 1, 2013).

KNPC has selected a joint venture formed by Fluor Corp., Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co., and Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. to design, construct, and commission the Mina Abdullah Package 2 CFP, Fluor said in a recent release.

Under the contract, Fluor will provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services as well as the associated commissioning, start-up, and testing support for the project, the company said.

The contract’s total value was not disclosed, and Fluor said it plans to book its undisclosed portion of the project value during first-quarter 2014.

KNPC previously let a lump sum EPC contract to a consortium led by Petrofac for CFP-related work related at its Mina Abdullah  and Shuaiba refineries.

Under the CFP, KNPC will integrate and upgrade the 270,000-b/d Mina Abdullah and 466,000-b/d Mina Al Ahmadi refineries and ultimately close the 200,000-b/d refinery at Shuaiba following the completion of the grassroots Al Zour refinery (OGJ Online, Dec. 3, 2013). The newly integrated refineries will operate as a merchant complex with total capacity of about 800,000 b/d, the company has said (OGJ Online, Apr. 1, 2013).
