Foster Wheeler Corporation has been awarded a contract by Pemex Refinacion (Pemex), a subsidiary of Petroleos Mexicanos, Mexico's national oil company, to provide project management services related to the administration, monitoring and coordination of work needed to reconfigure the Ing. Antonio M. Amor Refinery in Salamanca, State of Guanajuato, Mexico.

The overall reconfiguration projects announced by Pemex involve Salamanca and four other refineries and are expected to cost $5-$7 billion. Work at the five refineries is in the bidding stage and will be completed by international consortia. The projects are expected to result in increased production, enhanced product quality and additional product slates for the refineries.

The reconfiguration at the Salamanca refinery will include the construction and/or installation of new processing units; the expansion and/or reconfiguration of certain units currently in place; the expansion of auxiliary services associated with the refinery and with the storage, handling and supply facilities; and the overall integration into the refinery of the new plants, the modernized plants and the enhanced auxiliary infrastructure. This work will be performed by the selected engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) consortia.

Work on the project has begun and should be completed late in 2001.

Foster Wheeler will utilize the expertise residing in local Mexican companies to supplement its resources.
