ADNOC Refining has awarded WorleyParsons the project management consultancy (PMC) contract for the crude flexibility project at the Ruwais refinery.
The project is part of ADNOC’s programme to accelerate its downstream strategy delivery by expanding its crude processing options. The upgrade entails building new facilities and modifying existing installations to process offshore crude at the Ruwais refinery.
WorleyParsons will oversee the performance of the EPC contractor through the detailed design and procurement phases over the next 14 months. Thereafter, the WorleyParsons team will transition to the Ruwais refinery site to supervise the construction and commissioning works until the final delivery of the project in 2022.
“We are delighted that ADNOC refining has placed its trust in WorleyParsons on this highly strategic project and we look forward to working with ADNOC to achieve its vision for the Ruwais refinery,” said Andrew Wood, CEO, WorleyParsons.
