The EPC contract covers new process units such as a vacuum distillation unit, a diesel hydrocracking unit, a delayed coker unit, a distillate hydrotreating unit as well as a hydrogen production facility unit using TechnipFMC’s steam reforming proprietary technology. The project also includes other process units, interconnecting, offsites and utilities.
The project supports the Egyptian Government’s Energy Transition strategy and will reinforce the economic growth of rural areas while minimising environmental emissions as well as reducing the government export bill. The complex will transform lower-value petroleum products from Assiut Oil Refining Co.’s (ASORC) nearby refinery into approximately 2.8 million tpy of cleaner products, such as Euro V diesel.
The contract award will be included in the company’s 4Q20 inbound orders.
