ADNOC Refining has announced that it has awarded a design contract to the Wood Group, for a new refinery in Ruwais, as the state energy group moves to build the downstream industry.
The award for the Pre-Front End Engineering and Designing (Pre-FEED) is for a refinery with a capacity of 600,000 barrels of crude oil per day. This is the second stage in a four-stage process to get to the beginning of construction. The previous stage was a feasibility study. The Pre-FEED is expected to be completed by the end of this year, ADNOC said.
