New Delhi: Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) has awarded a pie of its $3.6 billion project to Engineers India Ltd, recognizing the Indian state-run engineering consultancy provider's prowess.
EIL has won the PMC (project management consultancy) contract for Orpic's Liwa Plastics Project at Sohar in Oman against international competitive bidding. The contract is valued at over $40 million and signifies the company's steady headway overseas.
EIL's contract is one of the two major awards announced by Orpic, which gave the front end engineering and design contract to Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CB & I) operating out of The Hague, Netherlands .
Orpic is owned by the government of Oman and Oman Oil Company SAOC, the commercial company wholly owned by the government created investment in the energy sector.
Liwa Plastics Project consists of a new petrochemical complex adjacent to the Sohar Refinery. The feedstock for the plant is to be brought from Fahud, 300 km from Sohar. EIL's contract also includes a feedstock extraction plant in Fahud and its transportation facility to Sohar.
