Amec Foster Wheeler JV enters Australian petchem market with ammonia facilities contract

August 11/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) Ч Clough AMEC has won a landmark contract to provide maintenance services to ammonia facilities in Western Australia that supply international and domestic fertilizer markets and explosives used in the mining industry, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The 5-yr deal, with an option to extend to 2027, is Clough AMEC's first entry into Australia's petrochemicals sector.

The JV will provide maintenance planning support and routine maintenance services and shutdowns, as well as the supply of management, tools and systems, to the Yara Pilbara Fertilizers Pty Ltd (YPFPL) and Yara Pilbara Nitrates PTY (YPNPL) facilities located near Karratha.

Owned by Yara Pilbara Holdings Ltd., YPFPL is one of the world's largest ammonia production facilities, with a capability of approximately 850,000 mtpy. Output from the plant is sold in the Australian domestic market, as well as South-East Asian market such as Indonesia and Korea. Liquid ammonia is a vital raw material for the manufacture of fertilizers.

Adjacent to this is YPNPL, a technical ammonium nitrate facility opened last year that cost AUS USD800 MM (?487 MM) to build. This plant produces ammonium nitrate used for explosives in the domestic mining market.

As MRC informed earlier, Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded an engineering contract by ISAB Srl, a Lukoil Group Co., as part of a major turnaround at their refinery in Priolo, Sicily, Italy.
