Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd. announced on Wednesday that it had received an Award Notification for a $3.8 billion USD Mina Abdullah I refinery of Clean Fuels Project (CFP) from Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC).

The Mina Abdullah I refinery package will be executed by a joint venture of Samsung Engineering(43%), UK’s Petrofac(47%) and CB&I Netherland B.V.(10%). Samsung Engineering will be responsible for engineering, procurement, construction and pre-commissioning on a lump-sum turnkey basis.

US and Japanese-led consortiums were approved to build Mina Abdullah II and Mina al-Ahmadi packages, respectively. The entire refinery development project will increase its capacity to 800,000 barrels per stream day (BPSD) from the current 736,000 BPSD.
