HOUSTON (ICIS)--France’s Technip announced on Monday that it was awarded an engineering and procurement services contract for two hydrogen reformers at Venezuela’s Puerto la Cruz oil refinery.

The contract was awarded by the Hyundai-Wison consortium, the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the upgrade project under a prime contract with the refinery owner, state oil company Petroleos De Venezuela (PDVSA).

Technip’s contract covers the engineering, fabrication, modularisation, procurement, pre-commissioning and start-up of the 135 million cubic feet/day (mcf/day) hydrogen reformers, which are scheduled for completion in the second half of 2014.

"We are delighted to have been awarded this project, which will utilize our state-of-the-art proprietary technology, after successfully completing the basic design package for these hydrogen plants,” said Stan Knez, Technip’s senior vice president for process technology. “Hydrogen is the most widely used industrial gas in the refining, chemical and petrochemical industries, and this contract further solidifies our position of market leader in this sector."
