Pemex lets contracts for two refineries

Pemex Refining, a division of Mexico’s Petroleos Mexicanos, has let contracts to a joint venture of Foster Wheeler and partner Altair Strickland LLC for work at two of the company’s Mexican refineries.

Under the contracts, the joint venture will provide engineering, design, procurement, construction, commissioning, and start-up of slide valve systems on delayed coker units at the 275,000-b/d Hector R. Lara Sosa refinery in Cadereyta, Nueva Leon, and the 190,000-b/d Francisco I. Madero refinery in Ciudad Madero, Tamaulipas.

Both projects are scheduled to be completed during refinery turnarounds in 2015, according to Foster Wheeler.

While specific contract values were not disclosed, Foster Wheeler did include them in its fourth-quarter 2013 bookings, the company said.
