Foster Wheeler Ltd has announced that its Madrid-based subsidiary Foster Wheeler Iberia, SA has been awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a new delayed coker complex at Empresa Nacional de Petroleo’s (ENAP) Aconcagua refinery at Concon, Chile. The project, which will use Foster Wheeler’s SYDEC(SM) delayed coking technology, will be executed by a consortium led by Foster Wheeler, with two other international companies. The total investment of the complex is about USD 430 million. The new facility includes a new 20,000 barrels per stream day delayed coker, auxiliary units, including sulfur recovery, sour water stripper, amine regeneration, coke handling and wastewater treatment, as well expanded utilities. Foster Wheeler Iberia, in collaboration with its consortium partners, will execute the project on a lump-sum turnkey basis. The process design package has been prepared by Foster Wheeler’s coking center of excellence in Houston. The new complex is expected to start up in the first half of 2008.
