Technip, a leader in project management, engineering and construction for the oil & gas industry, has been awarded a EUR43 mln EPC contract by Middle East Oil Refinery (MIDOR) for the expansion of the delayed coking unit of its refinery in Alexandria, Egypt. Technip's operating center in Rome, Italy, will execute the contract. Engineering, procurement and supply of equipment and materials will be delivered on a lumpsum basis; construction activities will be charged on a reimbursable basis.
The delayed coking unit, based on ConocoPhillips technology, will have a production capacity of 30,000 bpd and is scheduled to be delivered by the Q3 2010. This award attests to the successful collaboration between Technip and MIDOR, for whom the Group built the Alexandria refinery in the 1990's.
