WorleyParsons Wins Borouge Contract

28.03.2019 -

Australian engineering company WorleyParsons has been awarded a project management consultancy (PMC) contract by Borouge for a fourth expansion of the petrochemicals complex at Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

The complex will include the world’s largest mixed feed cracker with an ethylene capacity of around 1.8 million t/y along with 3.3 million t/y of olefins and aromatics. Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), joint owner of Borouge with Borealis, will supply ethane, butane and naphtha feedstocks from its refining and gas processing facilities.

WorleyParsons has already provided services to the pre-front end engineering design (FEED) phase following a number of earlier PMC contracts for ADNOC.

Earlier this month, Italian contractor Tecnimont said it had won a contract to provide FEED services for Borouge 4.

In separate news, WorleyParsons is reported to have received all antitrust approvals to complete its acquisition of Jacobs Engineering’s Energy, Chemicals and Resources (ECR) division. WorleyParsons announced the $3.3 billion purchase last October and expects to complete the transaction by the end of April 2019.
