Technip wins refinery contract in Bahrain

The Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) awarded Technip a significant contract on a reimbursable basis to develop the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) of the refinery located in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The FEED contract covers four main work packages that include units aimed at processing the ‘bottom of the barrel’ components to high value products, and all associated offsites and utilities to provide seamless integration with existing refinery facilities earmarked for retention post this major modernization. The project aims at enhancing the refinery configuration, by increasing the throughput from 267,000 to 360,000 barrel per day as well as improving the product slate and profitability.

Technip’s operating centre in Rome, Italy, in cooperation with Technip’s operating centre in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, will execute the contract, scheduled to be completed at the end of 2015. Technip Region B President Marco Villa said: “We are proud to be associated to BAPCO for this major development of the refinery. The award confirms Technip’s leading position as partner of choice to provide high-end services for strategic investments. This reflects at the same time the importance to follow the client and have keen understanding of its needs, since the very early stage of an initiative.”
