Fluor Corporation has announced that this joint venture team has been selected by Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) as the preferred bidder to design, construct and commission the Mina Abdullah Package 2 clean fuels project in southern Kuwait. Flour expects to book its undisclosed portion of the project value in the company’s first quarter of 2014.
For the lumpsum turnkey project, Fluor will provide engineering, procurement, construction services as well as the associated commissioning, startup and testing support. The project involves upgrading Kuwait’s Mina Abdullah and Mina Al-Ahmadi refineries in order to increase capacity. For this contract, Fluor has formed a joint venture with Daewoo Engineering & Construction and Hyundai Heavy Industries.
Taco de Haan, president of Fluor Energy & Chemicals for Europe, Middle East and Africa said, ‘this project will increase productivity at the facility while also delivering products that comply with state of the art environmental standards. We are proud to continue our decades long legacy of executing EPC projects with KNPC in Kuwait. We look forward to working with our joint venture partners and KNPC to successfully deliver this critical project.’
