KBR bags EPCL’s condensate refinery upgrading contract in Jebel Ali

HOUSTON, US: KBR has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by Emirates National Oil Company Processing Company LLC (EPCL) for the upgrade of its condensate refinery at Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates. The contract value was not disclosed. The upgrade will add new processing units (jet and diesel hydrotreaters and isomerization unit) and will lead to production of several Euro V grade products such as high octane gasoline, low sulfur jet fuel and ultra-low sulfur diesel.

“Supporting EPCL’s commitment to the downstream market is critically important. As a longtime partner with EPCL, we appreciate both the importance and the impact this project will have in enabling EPCL to achieve its business objectives,” said Roy Oelking, President, Hydrocarbons Business Group, KBR.
