Fluor wins Indian refining and petrochemical projects contract from Reliance

4 May 2012

Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has awarded a contract to Fluor to provide project management services for its refining and petrochemical projects to be executed in Jamnagar, Gujarat, India.

In addition to project management services, Fluor will provide engineering and procurement services for RIL's $4bn petroleum coke gasification project.

Scope of work includes providing petroleum coke gasification units, a refinery off-gas cracker and downstream petrochemical plants, a captive power plant and associated utilities and offsites.

"Fluor will provide engineering and procurement services for RIL's $4bn petroleum coke gasification project."

The completed gasification project will gasify petroleum coke to produce fuel and hydrogen for the expanded refinery, petrochemical complexes and captive power plant, as well as feedstock for future chemicals production.

Peter Oosterveer, Fluor energy and chemicals group president, said the two contract awards will support Reliance Industries' next phase of growth in India and are also important milestones for the company.

"Fluor's global project execution capability coupled with close to 20 years of growing our engineering and technical talent in New Delhi have positioned us for this key project in India," Oosterveer added.

"Reliance is a global player in the energy and petrochemical industries and we are poised to successfully deliver value-added projects to meet their capital expansion and operational objectives."
