TechnipFMC Wins Greece Refinery Project



TechnipFMC Wins Greece Refinery Project
Motor Oil Hellas has awarded TechnipFMC an engineering, procurement and construction management contract to construct a new naphtha complex.

Motor Oil Hellas has awarded TechnipFMC an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) services contract to construct a new naphtha complex at its Corinth Refinery in Greece, TechnipFMC reported Thursday.

In a written statement emailed to Rigzone, TechnipFMC stated the new naphtha complex will boast a capacity of 22,000 barrels per day and comprise three new process units. The new process units include:

  • A naphtha hydrotreater
  • A platforming unit
  • An isomerization unit.

According to the EPCm contract recipient, the complex will enable Motor Oil Hellas to produce more Euro 5 gasoline – in conjunction with the Greek refiner’s strategy to increase clean fuels output. TechnipFMC, which also executed front end engineering design for the naphtha complex, also noted the EPCm work includes upgrading existing utilities and offsites units.

“With this project, TechnipFMC strengthens its expertise in the delivery of complex projects and its leadership within the European downstream market,” commented Catherine MacGregor, president of TechnipFMC’s Onshore/Offshore business. “This project also illustrates the strong historical relationship between TechnipFMC and Motor Oil Hellas over the past 45 years.”

TechnipFMC did not specify the EPCm contract value but noted that it ranges from $75 million to $250 million.
