Petronas lets EPCC contract for RAPID

Malaysia’s state-run Petronas has let a contract to Sinopec Engineering (Group) Co. Ltd., Beijing, for work related to its proposed $20 billion refinery and petrochemical integrated development (RAPID) complex at Pengerang in southeastern Johor, Malaysia (OGJ Online, May 13, 2011).

The $1.3 billion contract package, which was awarded on July 25, involves the engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) for RAPID, Sinopec Engineering said.

Last month, Petronas awarded an EPCC contract to Zelan Construction Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of Zelan Bhd., Kuala Lampur, for a material offloading facilities jetty to be built at Tanjung Setapa, which will be used to handle imports of heavy-lift, oversized equipment and materials as well as some break-bulk and containerized cargo during construction and implementation of RAPID (OGJ Online, July 25, 2014).

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).

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.

RAPID is scheduled to be commissioned by early 2019.
