IRVING, Texas & JOHANNESBURG -- June 25, 2013
Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it was awarded a contract
by Sasol Technology (Pty.) Ltd. to perform basic engineering services
associated with the Natref Clean Fuels 2 Project in Sasolburg, South Africa.
Natref, the only inland crude refinery in South Africa, is a joint venture
between Sasol and Total. The undisclosed contract value will be booked in
Fluor’s second quarter of 2013.
“Fluor has established a long and successful track record at Natref, including
the execution of the initial clean fuels project in 2006,” said Peter
Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group. “This new contract
further demonstrates Fluor’s strong position in the global clean fuels project
development arena and our ability to deliver world-class work across Africa.”
This award follows the successful completion of a feasibility study and
conceptual engineering by Fluor. The purpose of the project is to develop,
design and build new process units on the Natref site in Sasolburg to meet the
legislated fuel specifications as promulgated by the South Africa government.
