Technip has been awarded by State Company Oil Project (SCOP) a lumpsum contract, worth more than €20 million, for the front-end engineering design (FEED) of a new refinery to be built in Karbala, Iraq.

The refinery will have a total capacity of 140,000 barrels per day and will include 18 process units based on state-of-the-art technologies, as well as related utilities, offsite facilities, infrastructures and a dedicated power plant.

This refinery is expected to produce liquid petroleum gas, gasoline, jet fuel, diesel oil, asphalt and fuel oil mainly for the internal needs of the Iraqi market.

Technip's operating center in Rome, Italy, will execute the contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2010.
