Al-Zour New Refinery & Petrochemical Complex Project
This project involves construction of a new refnery at Al Zour in Kuwait. It will be the largest refinery in the region. New refinery with capacity to produce 615,000 barrels a day (b/d) and possibly a massive petrochemical plant. Main facilities at the refinery include three atmospheric residue desulphurization (ARDS) units featuring two trains each, three crude distillation units (CDU), three diesel hydro-treating units (DHTU), two naphtha hydro-treating units (NHTU) and two kero hydro-treating units (KHTU). Other facilities include two saturated gas processing plants, a heavy oil cooling (HOC) unit, a hydrogen recovery (HR) unit, a hydrogen compression (HC) unit and four trains of hydrogen production units (HPU). The project further includes installation of a sour water stripper unit comprising three trains, three amine regeneration plants. three sulphur recovery units and tail gas treating units. Other installations include a hydrocarbon flare system, four sulphur pelletizing systems integrating two circular storage tanks and sulphur conveying systems, two acid gas flares, and four sulphur storage tanks. Associated project activities will include the installation of a sulphur pelletizing system, a steam generating unit, air systems, water treatment systems, a cooling water unit and high voltage substations to receive power from the Al-Zour South Power Station. Project activities also involve feedstock and product supply pipelines and construction of various channels, a basin for a future jetty, a barge dock, and roads. Work is likely to be split into three packages, with companies teaming up to compete for the contracts to mitigate risk.
