Foster Wheeler gets design contract for new refinery in Venezuela

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s Global Engineering and Construction group subsidiary, in consortium with Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co Ltd (HDEC), of South Korea, has been awarded a contract by Petroleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA) for Phase I (Hydroskimming section) of the new Batalla Santa Ines refinery to be built in Barinas, Venezuela. Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes early detailed engineering design and the delivery of an open book estimate for the crude distillation unit, storage and blending unit and fuel distribution plant.

“This award follows the 2011 award to Foster Wheeler of the process design and front-end engineering design services contract for the Batalla Santa Ines Refinery,” said Umberto della Sala, Chief Operating Officer of Foster Wheeler AG.

“Together with the award of the engineering, procurement and construction management services contract for PDVSA’s El Palito Refinery expansion project, announced on July 19, 2012, this award reflects PDVSA’s continued confidence in the strength of our refining technical expertise and the quality of our project execution,” added della Sala.
