Takreer lets contract for Ruwais refining complex

Abu Dhabi Oil Refinery Co. (Takreer), through a contractor, has let a contract to Metso Corp. to supply valve technology to its 350,000-b/d Ruwais refining complex about 385 miles west of Abu Dhabi City in the United Arab Emirates.

As part of the contract, Metso will deliver its Neles Globe control and on-off valves, most of which are equipped with technology aimed at performance follow-up and predictive maintenance to boost process efficiency and uptime, Metso said.

The valves will be installed in a carbon black and delayed coking plant currently under construction at the Ruwais complex, according to the company.

A value of the valve-supply contract was not disclosed.

Scheduled for completion in December 2015, the plant will process 30,000 b/d of crude and produce 40,000-tonnes/year of carbon black, Metso said.

Samsung Engineering of South Korea will provide project management services for the engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning processes for the project on a turnkey basis, Metso added.

Takreer previously announced a $10 billion expansion of the Ruwais refinery that will add 417,000 b/d of crude capacity, taking the plant to more than 800,000 b/d capacity. The company expects start-up in first-half 2014 (OGJ Online, Dec. 2, 2013).
