AMEC has been awarded a contract with Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) to provide Project Engineering and Management Services for the Mina Al Ahmadi, Mina Abdullah and Shuaiba oil refineries in Kuwait.
The five-year call-off contract, which has an optional one-year extension, is worth up to 72 million Kuwaiti Dinars (approximately £158 million). It was won in competitive tender and follows AMEC's successful delivery of the previous contract held since 2007.
AMEC will be responsible for a range of engineering and management services including feasibility studies, front end engineering design (FEED), Project Management Consultancy (PMC) services and training of Kuwaiti engineers. The contract also involves providing studies and FEEDs to KNPC's local marketing and projects department on a call-off basis for its in-country petroleum storage and transportation facilities.
