The Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) has awarded Technip a significant contract to develop the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) of the refinery located in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The FEED contract covers four main work packages that include units aimed at processing the “bottom of the barrel” components to high value products, and associated offsites and utilities to provide seamless integration with existing refinery facilities marked for retention following this major modernisation.
The project aims at enhancing the refinery configuration, by increasing the throughput from 267,000 bpd to 360,000 bpd as well as improving the product slate and profitability.
Technip’s operating center in Rome, Italy, in cooperation with Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, will execute the contract, scheduled to be completed at the end of 2015.
Marco Villa, Technip Region B President commented: “We are proud to be associated to BAPCO for this major development of the refinery. The award confirms Technip’s leading position as partner of choice to provide high-end services for strategic investments. This reflects at the same time the importance to follow the client and have keen understanding of its needs, since the very early stage of an initiative.”
