Amec Foster Wheeler awarded feasibility study contract for refinery upgrade in Pakistan
Thursday, Mar 17, 2016
Amec Foster Wheeler announces today the award of a contract by Pakistan Refinery Limited (PRL) for a detailed feasibility study to upgrade their refinery in Karachi, Pakistan.

PRL’s refinery, on the coastal belt of Karachi, is designed to process various imported and local crude oil. It is one of the principal manufacturers and suppliers of petroleum products to domestic markets.

This feasibility study will investigate and propose ways that the refinery can be upgraded to meet tougher product specifications through regulatory changes, as well as expansion to provide more of the petroleum products that are in demand in the domestic market, whilst ensuring the sustainability of the refinery.

A particular focus of the study will be into upgrading technologies to minimise the production of fuel oil from the refinery as well as making cleaner and higher quality products.

The contract started in January 2016.

Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Wheeler’s Group President for Asia, Middle East, Africa, and Southern Europe, said:

“I am delighted that Pakistan Refinery Limited have engaged us to undertake this significant feasibility study for them. We have been working in Pakistan for over 25 years, bringing our knowledge, expertise and skills to deliver excellence for our customers.”
