Foster Wheeler provides refinery FEED

New Jersey-based Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded a feasibility study and front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by the Iraqi Ministry of Oil for a new grassroots refinery at Nassiriya in southern Iraq.

The proposed refinery will have a capacity of 300,000 barrels a day.

The Foster Wheeler contract value for this project was not disclosed and will be included in the company’s second-quarter 2010 bookings.

In executing this contract, Foster Wheeler will develop the configuration of the refinery to meet the client’s processing objectives, evaluate proprietary technologies, prepare a report covering the feasibility of the project and the design basis of the refinery facilities, engage the selected licensors and prepare the front-end engineering design package for the total project.
