McDermott Bags EPCC Project for Barauni Refinery Expansion
McDermott International Ltd announced a contract award for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of a new naptha hydrotreating unit and a new isomerization unit with associated facilities for the Barauni Refinery Expansion Project in Bihar, India, for Indian Oil Corporation Limited. The units treat heavy naptha streams by removing sulphur, nitrogen and metal compounds to produce Bharat Stage-6 compliant gasoline. Bharat Stage-6 compliance produces a cleaner fuel to meet high emissions standards.
The project will be executed from McDermott's Gurgaon office in India with support from teams in Perth, Australia, and Brno, Czech Republic. The scope includes project management, residual process design, detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, inspection, transportation, installation, construction and all processes through to mechanical completion and commissioning. The work will commence in the third quarter of 2021.
