TORONTO (ICIS)--Technip has won a contract from Brazil-based Petrobras for a hydrotreater, a hydrogen plant and associated utilities at Petrobras's Presidente Bernardes Refinery, the French petrochemicals-engineering firm said on Wednesday.

Technip said the expansion project at the refinery in Cubatao, in Brazil’s Sao Paulo state, is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.

Following completion, the refinery would be able to produce low-sulphur diesel, Technip said.

Technip’s contract includes engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, pre-operation and “assisted operation” of the process units, it said.

Technip did not disclose financial or capacity details about the project.

According to information on Petrobras's website, the Presidente Bernardes Refinery supplies some 11% of Brazil's oil-products demand.
