US Honeywell wins work for planned Kuwait refineryHOUSTON (ICIS)--Honeywell has won a contract to install its control and safety system at Kuwait National Petroleum's planned 615,000 bbl/day Al Zour refinery complex, the US-based diversified technologies and petrochemicals engineering group said on Tuesday.

Honeywell will also provide the front-end engineering design (FEED) for the system, it added.

Al Zour will be the Middle East's largest refinery after starting up in 2018, Honeywell said. The new refinery will help meet domestic and export demand for ultra-low sulphur products such as fuel oil, diesel and kerosene, as well as petrochemical feedstocks.

Honeywell did not disclose the value of the contract.
