Detailed feasibility study for a new refinery and petrochemicals complex in Malaysia

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today the award of a contract by SKS Corporation Sdn Bhd, together with Petromin Corporation of Saudi Arabia, and another Asian partner, to supply consultancy services for a proposed new refinery and petrochemical complex in Kedah state, Malaysia.

The value of the consultancy contract, which will be delivered during 2015 by an Amec Foster Wheeler team in Reading and Kuala Lumpur, has not been announced.

Under the contract, Amec Foster Wheeler will undertake a detailed feasibility study to define the configuration of the complex, develop the infrastructure requirements, establish a project implementation plan and produce a cost estimate to help optimise the project and establish a clear plan to take the project forward.

The proposed development supports SKS’s aim to boost investment into the Malaysian economy and develop the region as a world class supplier of refinery and petrochemical products to South East Asia.

I am delighted that a combination of our local team in Kuala Lumpur supported by our refinery Centre of Excellence in Reading, is delivering a major feasibility study for this exciting, world-scale petrochemical project in Malaysia.
