TechnipFMC Plc FTI announced that it met the remaining conditions necessary to get started with the engineering, procurement and construction (“EPC”) work to set up the latest hydrocracking complex in Egypt.

The oilfield service provider signed this major contract with Assiut National Oil Processing Company (“ANOPC”) in July to develop the hydrocracking unit for the Assiut refinery to address the needs for petroleum products in the Upper Egypt region. The EPC contract offers various process units, namely Vacuum Distillation Unit, Diesel Hydrocracking Unit, Delayed Coker Unit and Distillate Hydrotreating Unit along with a Hydrogen Production Facility Unit. The project, worth more than $1 billion, also includes other process units, interconnecting, offsites and utilities.

The hydrocracking complex will apply TechnipFMC’s steam-reforming proprietary technology and is likely to have a feed capacity of 2.8 million tons of Euro V diesel and other cleaner products per year by transforming them from inferior petroleum products from a local Assiut Oil Refining Company’s (“ASORC”) refinery.

The project, which is considered one of the major strategic initiatives, addresses the rising local demand for high-valued products. It will add to the oil service firm’s revenues as it comes at a time when the oil market collapse and the coronavirus-induced demand downfall have led to a massive decline in the company’s earnings and cash flows. Notably, the contract upholds the Egyptian government’s energy transition strategy to boost the economic growth in the rural sector and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as the government export bill.
