SPIE Oil & Gas Services announced that it has been awarded a five year contract with Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) for its Clean Fuels Project (CFP), which is currently under the EPC phase of implementation.
The Clean Fuels Project is a major upgrade of KNPC's flagship refineries to meet the future diversified market requirements for petroleum products both in the domestic and international sectors. The project encompasses increasing the combined refining capacities of its Mina Al Ahmadi (MAA) and Mina Abdullah (MAB) refineries and enhancing the production of environmentally friendly value added products through bottom of the barrel processing using state of the art technologies. The project will also help link the two refineries to form an integrated refining complex and further enhance performance towards operational safety, reliability and energy conservation.
SPIE Oil & Gas Services has begun work on the five year contract with KNPC. The services will involve providing commissioning management and support services at both the MAA and MAB refineries under a CFP scope of work. The contract will draw on the expertise of SPIE Oil & Gas Services and work in tandem with the KNPC operations team.
“With SATORP, YASREF, PETRO RABIGH, and now with [the] KNPC project in Kuwait, we have become a major player in downstream activities in the Middle East” said Yves Compañy, Managing Director of SPIE Oil & Gas Services. “We have been working in the field since 2010, and are one of the few companies with the level of expertise needed in the area.”
