New Refinery Project Marine Facilities

Al Zour Refinery Project Marine Facilities

Al Zour, Kuwait
The largest refinery in the Middle East

Rendel has been awarded a Project Management Consultancy (PMC) contract by AMEC for the provision of specialist marine consultancy services on a new, grass-roots, 615,000 barrels per day oil refinery project in Kuwait for the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC).

When completed in 2018, the multi-billion dollar Al Zour refinery project is expected to be the largest in the Middle East and will increase Kuwait’s refinery capacity by 615,000. It will be a key part of Kuwait’s long term strategy, producing cleaner fuels to meet its electrical power generation growth and demand while adhering to the latest environmental standards.

Rendel’s services will follow the three phases of the Al Zour Refinery Project:

  • Phase 1 – Pre EPC Contract Award Phase
  • Phase 2 – EPC Contract Detailed Engineering and Procurement Phase
  • Phase 3 – EPC Contract Construction, Commissioning and Handover Phase

AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, was awarded a US$528 million (£330 million) PMC contract by KNPC for the refinery in December 2012.
