01/09/2017: Zamil Structural Steel completes delivery of materials for MAB-2 Phase of KNPC project in Kuwait

Zamil Structural Steel Co. (ZSSC) has successfully completed the fabrication, supply and delivery of Package 2 (MAB-2) of the Clean Fuels Project, containing a large tonnage of steel products, including pipe racks and process structures, for the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC). This expansive project site is located at the Mina Abdullah coastal zone, 60 km south of Kuwait City, Kuwait.

FDH JV, a joint venture of Fluor Corporation, Daewoo E&C and Hyundai Heavy Industries, is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for this project in southern Kuwait. KNPC currently owns and operates three major refineries: Mina Al Ahmadi (MAA), Mina Abdullah (MAB) and Shuaiba (SHU). A key goal of the Clean Fuels Project is to retire the processing facilities at Shuaiba Refinery and complete a major upgrade/expansion of the MAA and MAB refineries, creating a single KNPC refining complex.

The project also aims to boost production to meet market demand and specifications for transport fuels, to increase overall refining capacity from 736,000 BPSD to 800,000 BPSD once SHU operations have ceased, and to integrate the operating capabilities of the remaining two refineries, resulting in the most efficient utilization of the existing infrastructure. The former SHU facility will be repurposed to accommodate storage needs and operate export facilities at the complex.

ZSSC successfully supplied the entire scope of materials required by the Package 2 agreement over a period of 18 months, well within the agreed contractual delivery schedule and to the complete satisfaction of both FDH JV and KNPC. All ZSSC departments collaborated in the timely and efficient fabrication and delivery of the materials, ensuring top quality structural steel produced in accordance with KNPC specifications.

"We are proud to have provided the structural steel works necessary for completion of Package 2 of the Kuwait Clean Fuels Project," said Ashraf Eisouh, general manager of ZSSC. "Energy efficiency is a top priority among today’s businesses, and this prestigious project provides a valuable template for the consolidation and integration of resources, infrastructure and operations designed to produce a most effective result."

As one component of Kuwait’s 30-billion-dinar economic development plan, the Clean Fuels Project is expected to focus on the production of higher-value products intended for export, such as diesel and kerosene.
