HKCL’s scope of work under the contract includes the engineering and supply of four electrostatic precipitators and one seawater flue gas desulfurization system for the Nghi Son complex, according to an Aug. 22 release from HKCL.

The AQC system will be used to clean the gas from four 90-Mw fuel oil boilers, HKCL said.

The $9 billion Nghi Son refinery, currently under construction, will process Kuwaiti crude oil and is due to begin commercial operation in 2017 (OGJ Online, July 3, 2014).

A joint venture of PetroVietnam 25.1%, Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd. 35.1%, Kuwait Petroleum Europe BV 35.1%, and Mitsui Chemicals Inc. 4.7%, who collectively have financed $5 billion for the project, the Nghi Son complex also recently received its first credit package of about $600 million from contractors and sponsors (OGJ Online, June 19, 2014).
