PLOCK, POLAND: PKN Orlen’s Petrochemicals Development Programme is about to reach another milepost. As part of the project to extend the olefin complex in Plock, a contract has been signed for technical consultancy and Project Management Contractor (PMC+) services. It is expected to optimally prepare the project for successful delivery within the allocated budget and schedule.

The technical consultancy and PMC+ contract has been signed with Fluor, one of the world’s leading providers of engineering & design services. It guarantees proven, tailored-to-fit solutions designed to support complex projects in the en’ergy and fuel sector.

The services will involve end-to-end project management across all functional areas – from managing its timescales, costs, contractors and risks, through ensuring work safety, technical support and supervision of technical design standards, to managing procurement and actual execution. The works will engage a fully integrated team, made up of PKN ORLEN employees and a PMC+ consultant.

With to the PMC+ collaborative work model, PKN ORLEN will gain know-how in managing integrated capital projects. The model will also help develop and enhance the company’s in-house capabilities to benefit its further projects. In addition, by effectively employing the industry’s best business practice, it will allow PKN ORLEN to strengthen its competitive advantage on the market.

“We have taken another major step towards the key milestone in our plans to develop the petrochemical business, which is the olefin plant extension. Petrochemicals have enormous potential we are determined to make the most of. Our capital projects to develop the petrochemical area will solidify our position on the European market while providing tangible benefits to the Polish economy, turning it from an importer into a net exporter of petrochemicals,” said Daniel Obajtek, President of the PKN ORLEN Management Board.

“Given the scale of our venture, we have decided to deploy a consulting service within the PMC+ framework. In the case of particularly large projects, such as the olefin plant extension, this solution is a globally applied standard. Our contract with Fluor will fully integrate the project management, offering potential synergies and facilitating knowledge flows between PKN ORLEN and the contractor,” stresses Zbigniew Leszczy?ski, Member of the PKN ORLEN Management Board, Development.
