Under the terms of the agreement, SNC-Lavalin will carry out the initial basic engineering, master planning, process technology evaluation and selection to support project financial investment decision approvals, expected in Q3 2018.

Once the project proceeds to the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phase, SNC-Lavalin will also carry out the complete design and see the delivery of the refinery, working alongside Emirati contractors to maximise in-country value.

“This project is an important addition to the work that we do in the UAE, further boosting our extensive capability in providing end-to-end solutions in the downstream oil and gas market, as well as contributing to the growth of our business in the region and our continued focus on adding value to all seven Emirates” said Christian Brown, president for oil and gas at SNC-Lavalin.

Advanced topping refineries use distillation columns to separate crude oil into different petroleum products including naphtha, diesel, kerosene and fuel. The Inside Battery Limits (ISBL) scope of the agreement between SNC-Lavalin and Florexx includes construction of a 100,000 bpd capacity refinery complemented by non-process technical and non-technical buildings and support infrastructure.
