Fluor Corporation wins Enppi front-end engineering design contract

State-owned oil services outfit Enppi has awarded the Fluor Corporation, an American outfit, a contract for the design and management consultancy on the phosphoric acid production plant at Abu Tartour, according to a company press release. The contracts were signed in Cairo earlier this month. The Texas-based engineering firm did not give a timeline for its work but said it would fast-track designs for the USD 750 mn plant. The Ismail Cabinet said earlier this month that it was studying offers from Spanish, Chinese, German, and South Korean contractors who are looking to partner up with the state-owned Misr Phosphate’s El Wadi Phosphate Company on building the facility. The plant is expected to produce an annual 1 mn tonnes of phosphate-based fertilizers once it’s operating at full capacity, and will split its output evenly between local consumption and exports.
