Técnicas Reunidas has been selected by KNPC to execute the processing units project for the new refinery of Al-Zour, which will be the largest refinery in the Middle East.

The contract has been awarded on a LSTK basis to the international Joint Venture leaded by Técnicas Reunidas (Spain), Sinopec Engineering Group (China), Hanwha Engineering and Construction (South Korea) for an approximate value of 4,100 million dollars and a duration of 45 months. TR is the majority partner with 50% of the participation, therefore its portion exceeds 2,000 million dollars. The project will be developed at Técnicas Reunidas offices in Madrid.

The new refinery, which means an overall investment of 13,000 million dollars, aims to produce and supply ultra-low sulphur petroleum by-products to meet both the needs of the domestic market and international demand.

The scope of the contract of TR includes the engineering, supply, construction and commissioning of the following refining units: 3 crude distillation units (210,000 BPSD each), 3 atmospheric residue desulphuration units (110,000 BPSD each), 3 diesel hydrotreating units (62,000 BPSD each), 2 naphtha hyrdrotreating units (18,200 BPSD each), 2 kerosene hydrotreating units (53,000 BPSD each), a saturated gas unit (8,500 BPSD) and a heavy oil cooling unit.

This project will enlarge the experience and activity of TR in Kuwait, following the recent award of another important gas project for KNPC, which together with this contract means a total amount of 6,000 million dollars that TR will have to manage in this country in the coming years.

KNPC (Kuwait National Petroleum Company) is the company responsible for the refining and gas processing projects in Kuwait, and it is a subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC).

Técnicas Reunidas is one of the main international engineering and construction companies in the sectors of production of oil and gas, petrochemical and power generation for a wide range of clients worldwide. Since 1960 it has designed and built over 1000 industrial plants in over 50 countries.
