Guinea: Downstream Production SNC-Lavalin to Provide Engineering Services for Guinea Refinery
Brahms Oil Refineries has awarded a contract to SNC-Lavalin to undertake a front-end engineering design (Feed) conversion to EPC contract for a 10,000 barrel per day crude oil refinery in Kamsar, Guinea.
Montreal/Canada — SNC-Lavalin’s scope for this phase of the work includes project management, coordination and management of the process licensor, management of the geotechnical and topographic survey contractors, preliminary engineering and procurement. Further services comprise estimating services and an EPC execution plan for the complete grassroots refinery, including the tank farm and marine works required for import of crude oil by ship.
The contract includes the prospect to extend the Feed contract by a phased development of the project ultimately into an EPC project following Fid approval.
“We are delighted to be working with Brahms Oil Refineries on the first refinery to be built in Guinea to process West African crude oil,” commented Martin Adler, President, Oil & Gas. “This project allows us to demonstrate our expertise in modular design and supports our objective to grow our business in downstream oil and gas. We look forward to helping our client achieve FID and progressing to the EPC phase of the project.”
The plant will be designed to produce diesel, gasoline and jet A fuel to be sold to the local Guinean market.
Brahms Oil Refineries Limited is a private company focused on developing downstream projects aimed at contributing to the industrialisation of Sub-Saharan African countries.
