Foster Wheeler awarded propylene oxide unit contract

Foster_WheelerFoster Wheeler's  subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has won a contract to develop a propylene oxide unit at Jubail in Saudi Arabia.

Part of Sadara complex

The engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) contract was awarded by Aramco Overseas Company (AOC), a subsidiary of Saudi Aramco, and Dow Europe Holding (Dow) for their Saudi-based joint venture, Sadara Chemical Company.

This propylene oxide unit will be part of a world-scale, fully integrated chemicals complex owned and operated by Sadara. The deal is an extension to the front-end engineering design (Feed) contract given to Foster Wheeler by AOC and Dow in 2008.

Outstanding performance

Foster Wheeler did not disclose the exact contract value for the project, but said it will be included in the company's fourth-quarter 2011 bookings.

"A key factor in this win was the outstanding Foster Wheeler performance delivered on previous work for Saudi Aramco and Dow," remarked Umberto della Sala, chief operating officer of Foster Wheeler.
