Petronas lets contract for RAPID project

Malaysia’s state-run Petronas has let a program management consultancy (PMC) contract to a Technip SA-led joint venture with Fluor Corp. for its proposed $20 billion refinery and petrochemical integrated development (RAPID) complex at Pengerang in southeastern Johor, Malaysia (OGJ Online, May 13, 2011).

The PMC contract will include overall project and site management of the RAPID project and provision of project management services for specific engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) packages within RAPID throughout the project stages, as well as warranty management and close-out phases, Technip said.

This PMC contract, which will be executed by Technip’s operating center in Kuala Lumpur, follows the March 2012 award of front-end engineering and design to Technip for the RAPID project (OGJ Online, Mar. 13, 2012).

Technip PMC, the company’s new division focused solely on PMC services, also will participate in project execution, Technip said.

Petronas is poised for its refinery start-up by early 2019, according to Technip.

With a planned capacity of 300,000 b/d, the proposed RAPID refinery will produce naphtha and liquid petroleum gas feedstock for the petrochemical complex, as well as gasoline and diesel meeting European specifications to help address Asia-Pacific’s growing need for petroleum and petrochemical products (OGJ Online, Mar. 27, 2014; Mar. 13, 2012).

In addition to production units that include a naphtha steam cracker, the RAPID development will provide storage and logistics facilities for a number of dry and liquid bulk products (OGJ Online, Mar. 27, 2014).
