Foster Wheeler has received an engineering, procurement and construction management contract from ENOC Processing (EPCL) for a major upgrade of EPCL’s Jebel Ali gas condensate refinery in Dubai.




Foster Wheeler announced today that one of its subsidiaries has received an engineering, procurement and construction management contract from ENOC Processing Company (EPCL) for a major upgrade of EPCL’s Jebel Ali gas condensate refinery in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.



The project will be undertaken by Foster Wheeler Energy in the UK. The terms of the award were not disclosed.



The upgrade of the existing 120,000 barrels per stream day (BPSD) gas condensate refinery will include a 70,000 BPSD liquefied petroleum gas/naphtha hydrotreater, a 36,000 BPSD crude catalytic reformer and ancillary processing units, plus associated new or revamped utilities and offsite facilities.



The new facilities will allow EPCL to upgrade its existing naphtha product to a low-sulphur petrochemical naphtha product stream, and provide a 102 RON (Research Octane Number) reformate product stream. The new facilities will also allow the owners to operate the plant at full capacity using sour condensates. Other new products will include liquefied petroleum gas, butane and sulphur.
