Foster Wheeler wins Abu Dhabi petrochem deal

Foster Wheeler is awarded the project management contract for the expansion of Borouge's Ruwais complex.

Foster Wheeler has been awarded the project management contract on the US $2.5 billion expansion of Borouge’s Ruwais petrochemical complex in Abu Dhabi.

It follows the completion of a feasibility study by Borouge’s owners — the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company.

Production capacity of polyethylene and polypropylene will increase from 600 000 tonnes to around two million tonnes-a-year.

The expansion will be located next to Borouge’s existing complex in Ruwais, and is due for completion in 2010.
