Gas-to-chemicals complex contract Foster Wheeler

Foster Wheeler AG announced that a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded a contract by Petrobras for a world-scale grassroots gas-to-chemicals complex in Linhares, Espirito Santo State, southeast Brazil. Foster Wheeler will provide basic engineering design, front-end engineering design, and technical assistance and training during the engineering, procurement, construction phase through to successful completion of the plant performances tests.
The complex is expected to produce in excess of one million tonnes per annum of ammonia and urea fertilizers, methanol, acetic acid, plus formic acid and melamine, helping to reduce Brazil’s imports of these products.
Foster Wheeler will act as integrator for the entire complex, including managing the process licensors and Brazilian subcontractors.
“Our proven experience in executing large, complex integrated chemicals projects and our ability to support Petrobras through to start-up of this world-scale facility were key to our success in winning this important contract,” said Umberto della Sala, Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.
