Kuwait National Petroleum (KNPC) has selected Fluor to design, build and commission the Mina Abdullah Package 2 Clean Fuels project in southern Kuwait.

As part of the project, Fluor will upgrade Mina Abdullah and Mina Al-Ahmadi refineries to increase the capacity, while it formed a joint venture with Daewoo Engineering & Construction and Hyundai Heavy Industries for the Clean Fuels project.

Fluor will provide engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) services as well as the associated commissioning, start-up and testing support for the lump-sum and turnkey project.

Fluor Energy & Chemicals Europe, Africa and Middle East president Taco de Haan said the project will increase productivity at the facility while also delivering products that comply with state-of-the-art environmental standards.

"We look forward to working with our joint venture partners and KNPC to successfully deliver this critical project," Haan added.
