Technip awarded contract to revamp conversion unit in Mexico

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip, in a consortium with Construcciones Industriales Tapia, was awarded by Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) through its subsidiary PEMEX Refinacion, a contract for the revamp of one of the conversion unit of the Ing Hector R Lara Sosa refinery, located in Cadereyta, Mexico. Technip’s share of the contract is worth approximately $40 million.

The scope of work includes the detailed engineering, procurement, construction, training, commissioning and start up for the recondition of the combustion gases system of the No 1 catalytic plant (FCC) of the refinery. Technip’s operating centre in Mexico City, Mexico, will execute the project with the support of Construcciones Industriales Tapia for construction work. The project is scheduled to be completed in the second semester of 2014.

“This is our first EPC contract awarded by PEMEX Refinacion. We managed to capture it thanks to the acquisition of Stone & Webster process technologies and associated oil and gas engineering capabilities and its extensive experience and state-of-the-art technology portfolio. This contract will also be the first project to be managed from our recently opened Mexico City office,” said Emiliano Pescador, Manager, Technip Mexico.
