Amec Foster bags EPMS contract for refinery in Indonesia

LONDON, UK: Amec Foster Wheeler Plc has been awarded an engineering and project management services (EPMS) contract by PT Pertamina (Persero) and Saudi Aramco for the upgrade and expansion of the 348,000 barrels per day Cilacap Refinery in Central Java, Indonesia.

Over the next nine months, Amec Foster Wheeler will conduct the basic engineering design study, develop the scope of the proposed project and finalise the process configuration and licensors’ packages.

The upgrade of the Cilacap Refinery is part of Pertamina’s refinery development master plan. It aims to improve Indonesia’s energy security and involves the expansion and upgrade of its domestic refineries, with the overall Cilacap Refinery upgrade project estimated to cost approximately $4-5 billion.

The upgrade and expansion project is intended to increase the capacity of the refinery to 370,000 barrels per day, maximise production of cleaner gasoline and diesel, produce higher quality base oils for the domestic market, and expand aromatics and polypropylene production to more than 600,000 tonnes and 160,000 tonnes per year, respectively.

"This is a strategic project for Indonesia’s oil & gas industry, in one of Asia’s fastest growing economies with a growing energy demand. We will combine our in-depth refinery expertise from our Reading, UK, operation, together with our strong Asian operations, to deliver the best of Amec Foster Wheeler for this important project," said Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Group president for Asia, Middle East, Africa & Southern Europe.
