Foster Wheeler awarded FEED contract for a refinery upgrade in Russia

Gerald Ondrey

Foster Wheeler AG (Zug, Switzerland; www.fwc.com) says that a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded a contract by OJSC Gazpromneft Moscow Refinery to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) and design documentation in accordance with Russian norms, for a major investment, termed the Combined Oil Refinery Unit (CORU) Project, at the Moscow Refinery.

The value of the award was not disclosed and will be included in Foster Wheeler’s first-quarter 2013 bookings.

The CORU project is part of the implementation of Gazpromneft’s OJSC Moscow Refinery Revamping and Upgrading Program, under which the petroleum refinery will be expanded up to 2020 to process an additional 6 million ton/yr of crude oil and produce transportation fuels to Euro-V standards.

The CORU facilities are planned to include crude distillation and vacuum distillation units (CDU & VDU), a continuous catalytic reforming unit with naphtha hydrotreatment and hydrogen recovery by pressure swing adsorption, a diesel hydrotreater including a dewaxing section, a gas plant with a liquefied petroleum gases sweetening unit and common utilities. The FEED activities are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2013 while the submission of design documentation is scheduled for the first quarter of 2014.

Foster Wheeler was previously awarded the process design package for the facilities’ crude and vacuum distillation units and the gas plant.
