埃克森美孚推进Fawley炼油厂扩建项目

   2019-11-18 2140

据11月15日OGJ报道,埃克森美孚公司(ExxonMobil Corp.)已与福陆公司(Fluor Corp.)签订了一份合同,为该公司此前宣布的扩建项目提供一系列服务,该项目旨在将其下属埃索石油有限公司(Esso Petroleum Co.Ltd.)位于英国南安普顿附近的27万桶/天的Fawley炼油厂的超低硫柴油产量提高近45%。

服务提供商表示,在完成了扩展项目的前端工程设计(现在称为Fawley Strategy (FAST)项目)之后,福陆将为该项目提供设计、采购、施工等方面的有偿服务。

具体来说,福陆在该项目上的工作范围包括设计和建造一个新的柴油水处理器和蒸汽甲烷转化制氢装置,以及对未经确认的现有设施进行改造。按计划,工程的扩建将于年底前动工。

福陆既没有透露合同的价值,也没有透露合同的期限。

合同签订之前,埃克森美孚公司4月份做出了最终投资决定,继续进行这项耗资10多亿美元的扩建项目。该项目旨在通过增加一个加氢处理装置,以从燃料中脱除硫,从而帮助减少向英国进口柴油的需求,也将有助于提高炼油厂的整体能源效率。

除了改善物流,该项目还将使该地区的超低硫柴油日产量增加3.8万桶。待监管部门批准,FAST项目计划于2021年启动。

位于南安普顿西部的Fawley炼油厂是英国最大的炼油厂,拥有一英里长的海运码头,每年可为2000艘船只提供服务,可处理2200万吨原油及其他产品。

埃克森美孚此前曾表示,Fawley扩建项目是该公司到2025年增加其全球下游业务盈利潜力的更广泛计划的一部分。

ExxonMobil lets contract for UK refinery upgrade

ExxonMobil Corp. has let a contract to Fluor Corp. for a series of services related to the operator’s previously announced expansion project to increase production of ultralow-sulfur diesel by nearly 45% at affiliate Esso Petroleum Co. Ltd.’s (EPCL) 270,000-b/d Fawley refinery near Southampton.

Following its completion of front-end engineering design for the expansion—now known as the Fawley Strategy (FAST) project—Fluor will provide engineering, procurement, fabrication, and construction Specifically, Fluor’s scope of work Construction activities Fluor disclosed neither a value nor duration of the contract.

The contract award follows ExxonMobil’s April final investment decision to proceed with the more than $1-billion expansion project, which intends to help reduce the need to import diesel into the UK by adding a hydrotreating unit to remove sulfur from fuel, supported by a hydrogen plant that, combined, will also help improve the refinery’s overall energy efficiency.

In addition to logistics improvements, the project will increase ultralow-sulfur diesel production at the site by 38,000 b/d.

Pending regulatory approval, the FAST project is targeted for start-up in 2021.

Situated ExxonMobil previously said the Fawley expansion project comes as part of the company’s broader plans to increase earnings potential of its global downstream business by 2025 .
