McDermott International has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract from Viva Energy Australia as part of its Geelong Refinery project to provide additional desulfurisation capabilities.

The award follows the successful completion of the pre-FEED activity and encompasses early engineering and procurement services to support the project schedule.

Under the contract scope, McDermott will provide FEED services for a new modularised production unit. The unit will produce ultra-low sulfur gasoline with up to 10 ppm sulfur to meet the proposed changes to Australia's fuel quality standards from the end of 2024. Lower sulfur gasoline will support improved vehicle emissions.

"This award is testament to our successful execution of the pre-FEED. In this next phase, we will apply McDermott's extensive modularisation expertise to ensure quality, reduce cost and maintain the schedule," said Tareq Kawash, Senior Vice President, Onshore of McDermott. "We look forward to continuing to support Viva Energy Australia's carbon emission reduction goals to provide cleaner fuels and enhance Australia's fuel security."

Work on the project will be executed from McDermott's engineering centre of excellence in the Hague, the Netherlands with support from its offices in Gurgaon, India, and Perth, Australia.
