“CB & I ” the US firm awarded $370 mln Kuwait refinery contract.

Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) has awarded CB&I Nederland BV a $370 million contract for setting up new clean fuels project at the Mina Abdullah I refinery, Oil & Gas Journal reported.

CB&I is part of a joint venture led by Petrofac International Ltd., along with Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd., that will execute the Mina Abdullah I refinery project. CB&I’s project scope includes engineering and procurement for two atmospheric residue desulfurization units, which were previously licensed by Chevron Lummus Global, a joint venture between CB&I and Chevron.


The Clean Fuels Project is one of KNPC’s major investment projects to upgrade the Mina Abdullah andMina Al-Ahmadi refineries in order to reach a daily production target of 800,000 BPSD from the current 736,000 BPSD.

“This award builds on CB&I’s proven experience in the refining industry,” said Patrick K. Mullen, President of CB&I’s Engineering, Construction and Maintenance operating group. “The installation of these units will reduce sulfur, enhancing the ability of Kuwaiti petroleum products to compete on the world market and meet stringent international environmental regulations.”
