IOCL Awards McDermott Two EPCC Refinery Contracts
McDermott International Ltd has received two separate engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contract awards from Indian Oil Corporation Limited for the Haldia Refinery and the Barauni Refinery.
The first award is an EPCC contract for a new diesel hydrotreating unit and associated facilities for the Barauni Refinery Expansion Project in Bihar India.
The second award is an EPCC contract for the catalytic dewaxing unit and associated facilities at the Haldia Refinery in West Bengal, India. The catalytic dewaxing unit will help produce base oil which can be utilized in finished lubricants. India is the world's third-largest user of finished lubricants but is also, with a deficit of base oil, one of the world's largest importers of base oil. Both projects contribute to greater independence for India's domestic energy needs.
The scope of work across the projects includes project management, residual process design, detailed engineering, fabrication, procurement, construction, transportation, mechanical completion and commissioning. Work will commence in quarter two 2021. Both projects will largely be executed by the McDermott team in Gurgaon, India, with some support from Perth, Australia and Brno, Czech Republic.
