Samsung Engineering awarded Pemex Salamanca Refinery plant contract  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Samsung Engineering Co. (Seoul, South Korea; www.samsungengineering.com) has received a contract from Pemex, a Mexican state-owned petroleum company, for the Pemex Salamanca ULSD Project. The project will be executed in two phases. Phase I will include detail engineering and procurement of long-lead items and Phase II will comprise the rest of detail engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning. The $80-million contract awarded to Samsung Engineering is for Phase I, which will be executed on an OBCE (Open Book Cost Estimation) basis. The project site is located in Salamanca 250 km northwest of Mexico’s capital, Mexico City. Samsung Engineering’s design will include the new hydrodesulfurization (HDS) unit with the capacity of 38,000 barrels per stream day (bpsd) and the revamping of an existing HDS unit with the capacity of 53,000 bpsd. The initial engineering phase of the project is expected to be completed in September of 2015.
