Foster Wheeler has been selected by TotalFinaElf to provide Engineering and Procurement services associated with clean fuels investment projects totalling £25 million at their Lindsey Oil Refinery, Immingham, UK.

Foster Wheeler's Teesside Operation will execute the projects, which involve the revamp of Lindsey Oil Refinery's hydro-desulfurisation (HDS) and Unifiner units at Immingham. These revamps will allow Lindsey Oil Refinery to produce diesel and gasoline fuels to meet the latest clean fuel specifications. The revamp projects, which include specification of a new HDS reactor, are located in an existing plot area of the refinery and governed by a fast-track schedule. The front-end engineering design for the HDS revamp was also carried out by Foster Wheeler.

In addition, Foster Wheeler has also signed a term services agreement with Lindsey Oil Refinery. Under this agreement, Foster Wheeler's scope will include miscellaneous capital project work to support refinery operations and turnarounds. Foster Wheeler will also undertake the provision of technical personnel to the refinery.

Ian Bill, Chairman and Chief Executive of Foster Wheeler Energy Ltd, said: “Through our Teesside Operations in Middlesbrough with specialist input from our UK headquarters in Reading, the company is able to provide a full project execution service to Lindsey Oil Refinery. The award of the HDS and Unifiner revamp contracts continues to build on the successful relationship between Foster Wheeler and Lindsey Oil Refinery based on a number of smaller projects which we have executed successfully at the refinery.”
