AMEC, the international project management and services company, has been appointed by PetroChina Guangxi Petrochemical Company (GXPC) as its project management contractor for the development of a US$1.6bn grassroots refinery in Qinzhou in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, south-western China.

AMEC’s contract is worth US$16m.

AMEC’s role is to provide project management services within GXPC’s Integrated Project Management Team and includes development of the project management procedures, engineering, project controls, health, safety and environmental management , quality management and several other operational and commercial functions.

When completed in 2008, the new refinery will process up to 10 million tonnes a year of Sudanese oil to produce petroleum and petrochemical products for the local market. At the heart of the plant there will be Inside Battery Limit process units for crude distillation, fluidised catalytic cracking, hydro-cracking, diesel hydrotreating, gasoline etherification and polypropylene production. Supporting facilities in the Outside Battery Limit area will include power and steam generation plants, general utilities, tank farm, administration buildings and a port with a jetty.

“China is a huge and expanding market where our integrated engineering and services skills and experience are highly valued,” said Neil Bruce, Chief Operating Officer of AMEC plc - Natural Resources. “This contract confirms our reputation in project management and our continued commitment to this strategic region.”

The contract award is the latest in series of successes for AMEC in China. It follows major work on the multi-billion dollar SECCO ethylene complex near Shanghai, the PetroChina Dushanzi ethylene project and the Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group coal-based polypropylene project.
