KBC Advanced Technologies plc is pleased to announce the award of a three-year, US$8.5m consulting contract to assist a major Middle Eastern client with margin improvement and workforce capability development across three refineries. The award, which was subject to competitive bidding, includes provision for a further US$2.4m of optional services.
In the late 1990's KBC conducted profit improvement programmes for this client with significant benefits identified and agreed. KBC is therefore very pleased to be asked to return, this time with more sophisticated tools and a wider portfolio of capabilities, to assist in the identification of improvement opportunities. This award is in addition to our current consulting engagement in the country, which is to assess the feasibility of investing in a new petrochemical complex.
