France’s Technip won a “significant” contract to develop the front-end engineering design (FEED) for upgrades at the state owned Bahrain Petroleum Company refinery in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Technip said the value of a “significant” onshore contract ranges from about $65 million to $129 million.
The FEED project will boost the refinery’s throughput from 267,000 to 360,000 barrel per day as well as improving its product slate and profitability.
The Technip contract is part of a larger modernization plan for the refinery.
The Kingdom of Bahrain is an island nation located in the Persian Gulf near the northwest coast of Qatar.
The FEED contract covers four main work packages that includes units used to process the “bottom of the barrel” components to high value products and all associated offsites and utilities to provide seamless integration of the new units with existing refinery facilities.
Technip’s operating center in Rome, in cooperation with Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi, will execute the contract.
The project is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2015.
