Foster Wheeler AG announced that a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded a project management and consultancy (PMC) services contract by the Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical Limited Liability Company for its Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical (NSRP) Complex to be constructed in the Nghi Son Economic Zone, Thanh Hoa Province, Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

The Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical Limited Liability Company is a joint venture company formed by and between the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, Vietnam; Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd., Japan; Kuwait Petroleum Europe B.V., Netherlands; and Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., Japan.

The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed and will be included in the company's second-quarter 2013 bookings.

The refinery is designed to process Kuwait Export crude. The plant will have the facilities for full conversion, with an integrated aromatics complex and polypropylene production. The expected total investment for the project is US$9 billion.
