French group Technip wins deal to modify Bapco refinery unit after submitting lowest bid

Technip has been awarded the contract to modify a sulphur recovery unit (SRU) at the Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) refinery, the French company disclosed.

The lump-sum contract covers the engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) commissioning and start-up assistance for the project at the complex’s number three SRU.

The scheme will ensure the unit is capable of safely burning off-gas from the sour water stripping process and becomes a viable spare for the new number four SRU.

Technip submitted the lowest EPC bid of $16.6m for the contract, ahead of South Korean groups Samsung Engineering and GS E&C, and Japan’s JGC Corporation.

US-based CB&I is the technology provider and also carried out the front-end engineering and design (feed) phase of the project.

Bapco is also planning a $6.5bn project to rehabilitate and expand its refinery, recently prequalifying companies for the feed and project management consultancy (PMC) contracts.
