LONDON (ICIS)--Foster Wheeler subsidiary Global Engineering and Construction Group has signed an evergreen agreement with Valero Energy for the provision of home office engineering and project support services to the Pembroke refinery and other facilities in the UK, the company said on Tuesday.

Foster Wheeler will provide home office front-end engineering design and detailed engineering design services to support new development and modification projects at the Pembroke refinery and additional sites, it added.

Other support services, including project control and cost estimating, would also be delivered by Foster Wheeler, it added.

“We know this refinery well, having executed projects for the refinery since the 1980s,” said Umberto della Sala, president and chief operating officer of Foster Wheeler.

“The combination of our knowledge of the refinery, together with our in-depth refining expertise, particularly in revamp projects, and our flexible and responsive team, give us an excellent opportunity to build a strong, long-term relationship in the UK with Valero. We have already successfully executed projects for Valero elsewhere, particularly in the US,” he added.

US-based Valero acquired the Pembroke refinery from Chevron in 2011.

The terms of the agreement between the subsidiary and Valero were not disclosed.
