Fluor awarded SAPREF’s Clean Fuels project contract in Durban, South Africa

IRVING, US/JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA: Fluor Corporation was awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract by South African Petroleum Refineries (SAPREF), joint venture between Shell SA Refining and BP Southern Africa, for its Clean Fuels II Project in Durban, South Africa. The undisclosed contract value was booked in the first quarter of 2013.

This new contract will be the first to be executed in Africa under Shell’s enterprise framework agreement with Fluor that encompasses engineering and project management services throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The project will enable a substantial upgrade of the SAPREF refinery, thereby improving the quality of transportation fuels by reducing levels of sulfur, benzene and aromatics, thereby meeting enhanced legislative requirements. The agreement allows for the potential of an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract to be signed at a later date.

“This award builds on our significant clean fuels expertise as well as Fluor’s ongoing site support work with SAPREF in South Africa for nearly 20 years,” said Peter Oosterveer, President, Energy & Chemicals Group, Fluor.
