Foster Wheeler bags fluid catalytic cracker contract in Indonesia

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler’s subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction group has been awarded a contract by PT Pertamina, the national oil company of the Republic of Indonesia, to provide project management consultancy services for the Residue Fluid Catalytic Cracker (RFCC) project at the Cilacap Refinery, on the island of Java, Indonesia. Foster Wheeler will manage the engineering, procurement and construction.

The RFCC project is intended to build a 62,000 barrels per day RCC Complex, which includes a RFCC, a new LPG MeroxTM unit and propylene recovery and gasoline hydrotreating units. Production of liquid petroleum gases is also expected to be increased by 350,000 tonne per annum, and the refinery also plans to produce in excess of 140,000 tonne per annum of propylene. The upgrade is expected to be completed in 2014.

“Key to winning this contract was our ability to manage the project from our newly-established operations in Jakarta, Indonesia, as well as our proven project management capability and our leading technical expertise in all areas of refining,” said Umberto della Sala, Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler.
