ICA Fluor, the industrial construction joint venture of Empresas ICA, S.A.B. de C.V. and Fluor Corp. have signed a contract with Pemex Transformacion Industrial to supply detail engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the utilities and offsites that are part of the Tula Refinery upgrade at Hidalgo, Mexico. The total contract value is US$1.1 billion.
This contract is a result from the joint efforts of Pemex Transformacion Industrial (formerly Pemex Refinacion) and ICA Fluor to continue with the modernisation process of the Tula Refinery.
“This project is a major step to increase Pemex’s competitivity,” said Juan Carlos Santos Fernandez, Director General of ICA Fluor. “We are proud to be in the position to support them in the development of the strategic projects required by the country, providing Mexican engineering and construction resources.”
Once the upgrade project is completed, the refinery’s processing capacity is expected to increase from 315 000 bpd to 340 000 bpd.
The project’s mechanical completion is scheduled for the 2Q18.
