Foster Wheeler Ltd. (OTCBB: FWLRF) announced today that its UK subsidiary Foster Wheeler Energy Limited has been awarded an engineering contract by OAO Salavatnefteorgsintez (SNOS) for a multimillion dollar fluidized catalytic cracking (FCC) complex to be built at the Salavat Refinery, Salavat City, Russia. The terms of the contract were not disclosed. The booking was included in the second quarter.

"We are delighted to be awarded this contract by SNOS," said Steve Davies, chairman and chief executive officer, Foster Wheeler Energy Limited. "We are well-known for our unrivalled FCC design and construction experience. I am confident that with our track record, our Russian experience, the quality of our team and our engineering, we will fully support SNOS in achieving its business objectives. The Russian market is of strategic importance to Foster Wheeler, and we will be building on existing relationships with Russian engineering companies to ensure maximum value is offered to SNOS."

Foster Wheeler will provide the first stage of design services, involving general co-ordination of licensors, a project cost estimate, advice on Russian design requirements, development of the required Russian permitting documentation, and initial detailed engineering and procurement to support an accelerated overall project schedule. Russian engineering companies well known to Foster Wheeler will provide specific expertise and support during project execution.

The catalytic cracking complex will produce high-value gasoline and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and will be comprised of a fluidized catalytic cracker, gasoline hydrotreater, associated gas treatment units, and a dedicated flare. Vacuum gas oil will be supplied as feedstock from the existing refinery.

Shell will provide licensed technology for the fluidized catalytic cracker, Merichem and Belco for the treatment units, and Axens for the gasoline hydrotreater.
