LONDON (ICIS)--UK energy and petrochemicals engineer AMEC has won a five-year contract to provide project and management services for Kuwait's three refineries, the company said on Friday.

The £158m (€188m, $255m) contract by Kuwait National Petroleum (KNPC) is for Kuwait’s Mina Al Ahmadi, Mina Abdullah and Shuaiba oil refineries.

Under the deal, AMEC will be responsible for a range of engineering and management services, including feasibility studies, front end engineering design (FEED), project management consultancy services, as well as the training of Kuwaiti engineers.

The contract also involves providing studies and FEEDs to KNPC’s local marketing and projects department for petroleum storage and transportation facilities.

The deal includes an optional one-year extension. AMEC won the contract in a competitive tender. It follows AMEC’s successful delivery of the previous contract held since 2007, the company said.
