Foster Wheeler Ltd. announced that its Italian subsidiary Foster Wheeler Italiana S.p.A. has been awarded a project management consultancy contract by Société Anonyme Marocaine de l'Industrie de Raffinage (SAMIR) for a major upgrade and expansion of its Mohammédia Refinery, located near Casablanca, Morocco. Foster Wheeler's contract value was not disclosed and the project will be included in the Company's third-quarter bookings.

SAMIR's upgrading program, which has a total investment cost of approximately $650 million, aims to increase refinery capacity, maximize gasoil production and improve product quality specifications to meet the distillate requirements of the Moroccan market by 2010.

The total refinery throughput will be 6.25 million tons/year, equivalent to about 121,000 barrels/day. The upgrading and expansion program includes new conversion and auxiliary units: a vacuum distillation unit, a hydrocracker, a distillate hydrotreater, a sulfur recovery unit and a hydrogen plant. The refinery enhancement is expected to be completed by June 2008.
