USA: Engineering Mc Dermott Wins Feed Contract for Meridian Energy’s Grassroots Refinery
Capable of handling 49,500 barrels per day, the new refinery is expected to produce ultra-low sulfur diesel and premium gasoline. The plant will also make use of modern technology in order to improve operational efficiency.
Texas/USA – Mc Dermott International has recently announced that it has won a sizeable contract for front-end engineering design (Feed) services of the Davis Refinery Project. Located in Billings County, North Dakota, the project is a grassroots refinery that is being developed by Meridian Energy Group.
The new Davis Refinery will leverage the prolific crude oil feedstocks generated from the recent Bakken shale revolution – specifically from the Williston Basin in North Dakota. Touted as one of the most environmentally-friendly refineries in the U.S., the new refinery will utilise modern technology and improve operational efficiency while maintaining strict environmental stewardship.
Capacity of the new refinery is expected to be 49,500 barrels per day and will include the production of ultra-low sulfur diesel and premium gasoline. After conclusion of the Feed study, both parties will endeavour to enter into an EPC agreement to build the refinery.
