Refinery Contract by KNPC AMEC Awarded Contract for Expected Largest Oil Refinery in the Middle East
AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been awarded a $528 million (£330 million) Project Management Consultancy (PMC) contract by the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) for a new oil refinery at Al Zour, Kuwait.
London/UK – AMEC awarded $528 million new refinery contract by KNPC, Kuwait. When completed in 2018 the multi-billion dollar refinery is expected to be the largest in the Middle East and will increase Kuwait’s refinery capacity by 615,000 barrels per day. It will be a key part of Kuwait’s long term strategy, producing cleaner fuels to meet its electrical power generation growth and demand while adhering to the latest environmental standards. The contract is expected to create around 300 new jobs for AMEC.
Alan McLean, AMEC’s Vice President of its Middle East, Africa and CIS business, added: “This project is significant for AMEC in the Middle East and recognises the experience and knowledge we have gained by successfully delivering PMC contracts in the region. The project is also important for KNPC in enabling it to meet the demands of its customers.”
