Fluor Corporation announced its joint venture team was selected by Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) as the preferred bidder to design, construct and commission the Mina Abdullah Package 2 Clean Fuels Project in southern Kuwait. Fluor expects to book its undisclosed portion of the project value in the company's first quarter of 2014.
For the lump-sum, turnkey project, Fluor will provide engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) services as well as the associated commissioning, start-up and testing support.
'This project will increase productivity at the facility while also delivering products that comply with state-of-the-art environmental standards,' said Taco de Haan, president of Fluor Energy & Chemicals for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. 'We are proud to continue our decades-long legacy of executing EPC projects with KNPC in Kuwait. We look forward to working with our joint venture partners and KNPC to successfully deliver this critical project.'
