Technip awarded a services contract for a proposed new nitrogen complex in Peru

Technip has been awarded by CF Industries a lump sum contract for the front-end engineering design (FEED) of a proposed grassroots nitrogen complex to be built in Peru, near the city of San Juan de Marcona.

This project would be the first major nitrogen fertilizer complex in Peru. It would be fed by natural gas from the Camisea field which would be connected to the facilities through a new pipeline system.

The contract covers:

  • a 2,600 ton per day ammonia unit,
  • a 3,850 ton per day urea synthesis unit,
  • a 3,850 ton per day urea granulation unit, and
  • the utilities and offsite facilities.

A final decision on the project will be made once results of the FEED study and other analysis are completed.

The FEED study is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2009 and will be executed by Technip's operating center in Rome, Italy. The contract reinforces Technip’s position on the fertilizer market. It follows the feasibility study for the same project, completed by Technip in the fourth quarter of 2008.
