Tecnicas Reunidas has been awarded the USD 2.7bn contract for the execution of engineering, procurement and construction of the crude processing units at the Peruvian refinery.

The project includes the design and detailed engineering, procurement of all equipment and materials, construction and assistance to the start-up of the facility within a schedule of 55 months.

The plant will produce diesel and gasoline fuels according to the new Peruvian environmental requirements (with a maximum sulphur content of 50 ppm) at competitive prices.

The project will also contribute to reducing environmental impact, the production of fuels of improved quality and to improve operational flexibility.

In line with the protection of the environment, this refinery will have minimal emissions, generate its own electricity and include its facilities for desalination of sea water and purification to avoid altering the aquifers in the area.

The modernisation project will increase the refinery production from 62,000 to 95,000 barrels per day.
