The USA-based company was given the US$2.6bn contract in Q3 2015, and leads the joint venture that comprises Daewoo Engineering and Construction and Hyundai Heavy Industries as well. 

The Al-Zour refinery, when completed, will be among the largest oil refineries in the world and will produce nearly 650,000 bpd. Fluor will provide a variety of key process units, utilities and infrastructure for the project. 

Fluor energy and chemicals president for Europe, Africa and Middle East Taco de Haan said, “Fluor is proud to continue our long-standing relationship with KNPC, which spans more than five decades, and to become part of this prestigious and strategically important Al-Zour project. From the onset, and throughout every phase of the project, our focus will be on the safe and efficient construction, commissioning and start-up of this new refinery.”
