LONDON, UK/ PARIS, FRANCE/ HOUSTON, US: TechnipFMC has signed a major Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract by Middle East Oil Refinery (MIDOR) for the modernization and expansion of their existing complex near Alexandria, Egypt. 

This EPC contract covers the debottlenecking of existing units as well as the delivery of new units including a Crude Distillation Unit, a Vacuum Distillation Unit, a hydrogen production facility based on our steam reforming technology, as well as various process units, interconnecting, offsites and utilities.

Starting in 2022, the modernized complex will exclusively produce Euro V products, with a 60 percent increase in the refinery’s original capacity to 160,000 barrels per day of crude oil. 

“This award demonstrates our long-standing relationship with MIDOR which started in 2001, with the delivery of their grassroot refinery. We are proud to support our client MIDOR in improving the production quality of their refinery, considered the most advanced of the Mediterranean region and African continent,” said Nello Uccelletti, President of TechnipFMC’s Onshore/Offshore business.
