KNPC-Al zourAMEC has been awarded a US$528mn Project Management Consultancy (PMC) contract by the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) for a new oil refinery at Al Zour, Kuwait

Dr Hisham Mahmoud, AMEC group president, Growth Regions, said, “This contract award supports our Vision 2015 strategy, which includes growing our presence in the Middle East's oil and gas upstream, midstream and downstream sectors. It is also an example of our ability to leverage our global design, engineering and project management expertise to deliver complex projects for our customers anywhere in the world.”

AMEC vice-president of Middle East, Africa and CIS business, Alan McLean, added, “This project is significant for AMEC in the Middle East and recognises the experience and knowledge we have gained by successfully delivering PMC contracts in the region. The project is also important for KNPC in enabling it to meet the demands of its customers.”
