Technip bags PMC contract for upgrading Basra refinery in Iraq

PARIS, FRANCE: Engineering company Technip SA said, in partnership with UNICO, a Japanese engineering consultant, it was awarded a project management consultancy (PMC) contract on a reimbursable basis, for upgrading the Basra refinery. This contract, awarded by South Refineries Company (SRC) – Ministry of Oil, covers the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, start-up and warranty management phase of the refinery upgrading project, located in Basra, Iraq.

The project will aim at increasing the gasoline production capacity through the installation of a new fluid catalytic cracking unit and associated units like visbreaker, hydrotreating, hydrogen plant, etc. This development is part of Iraq government’s long term plan to meet increasing future demand for hydrocarbon products.

This award follows the PMC contract attributed to Technip in June 2013 for the Karbala refinery. It will be executed by Technip’s engineering center in Milton Keynes, UK and supported by Technip PMC teams.
