Foster Wheeler gets EPC contract for refinery upgrade in Thailand


ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s subsidiary in its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded a contract by Thai Oil Public Company Limited for the basic design engineering package and engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) services for emission improvement and PSA-3 project at Thai Oil’s refinery at Sriracha in Thailand. The contract values were included in the company’s first-quarter 2011 bookings. The project is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2013.

The project’s objectives are to give the refinery greater flexibility in the crudes it can process, specifically to enable the refinery to process higher sulfur crudes, to upgrade fuel oil to more valuable end products and to meet new sulfur oxides (SOx) emissions regulations coming into force in Thailand. Foster Wheeler’s scope also includes a significant element of revamp work.
