Amec Foster Wheeler was selected as the project management consultant for the new 10 million tonnes per annum Aegean Refinery Project being built adjacent to the PETKIM facilities at Aliaga, Turkey by STAR Rafineri AS, a subsidiary of SOCAR Turkey.
We previously completed the FEED for the entire refinery, and provided the licence and basic design package for the delayed coker unit, based on our leading SYDEC(SM) delayed coking technology.
“This refinery will significantly reduce Turkey’s dependence on imports of many petroleum derivatives, and so it is a strategically important investment. Amec Foster Wheeler’s project management and project execution expertise is well-known, and we are confident that the Amec Foster Wheeler team will make a valuable contribution to the success of this mega-project.”
Kenan Yavuz, CEO, SOCAR Turkey
The refinery is designed to process a range of different crude oils, including Urals, Azeri Light and Kirkuk, to produce a range of products including jet fuel, diesel, naphtha, petroleum coke and liquid petroleum gases.
The engineering and procurement phase is being executed in the contractors’ offices in Spain, Italy and South Korea. We are established at the Aliaga jobsite and our services for this multi-centre execution project involve our Madrid, Milan and Istanbul execution centres.
