Singapore: petrochemical investment

Foster Wheeler Ltd has announced that its UK subsidiary, Foster Wheeler Energy Ltd (FWEL), and its Singapore subsidiary, Foster Wheeler Eastern Private Ltd (FWEPL), have been awarded contracts by Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd for two basic design engineering packages (BDEP) associated with an ethylene oxide/mono-ethylene glycol (EO/MEG) plant and a significant refinery modification project in Singapore. FWEL is executing the BDEP for the new EO/MEG plant on Jurong Island and FWEPL is executing the BDEP for the modifications at Shell’s Pulau Bukom Refinery, located on an adjacent island. The new EO/MEG plant, scheduled for completion in 2009, will use feedstock from Shell’s proposed ethylene cracker located on neighbouring Bukom Island. Both the cracker and the EO/MEG plant are part of an overall investment program, which includes integration of the new facilities with Shell’s existing refinery at Bukom to capture the benefits of oil-chemicals integration. The Bukom refinery modifications, which will provide feedstock to the proposed ethylene cracker, are also due for completion in 2009. The proposed modifications include revamp of existing units, addition of new units, new and revamped tankage facilities, plus tie-ins and interconnections.
