Duqm, Oman (June 1, 2019)


Baker Hughes announces successful award as key supplier of Masoneilan control valves and Consolidated safety relief valves for the Duqm Refinery greenfield construction project, a joint venture operation between Oman Oil Company (OOC) and Kuwait Petroleum International (KPI).

The newly constructed onshore oil refinery located approximately 600 km south of Muscat in Duqm, Oman, will produce light and middle weight distillates with production capacity of 230,000 barrels per day. The refinery comprises hydrocracking, hydro-treating and delayed coking units, along with sulphur recovery, hydrogen generation and merox treating units.  It will focus production on primary products including naphtha, jet fuel, diesel and liquid propane gas.

“This project was a strong, coordinated win from all sides of our global team,” said Juan Cuesta, Vice President of Global Sales Baker Hughes valves. “We’ve had proven support for our large installed base in Oman from our Jebel Ali aftermarket service center for many years which has ensured operational success. Combining that with the strong coordinated application engineering expertise from our global EPC teams in Korea, Spain, and the UAE, we provided fully aligned technical packages to the EPC joint ventures between Petrofac/Samsung for the offsite & utilities packages and with Tecnicas Reunidas/Daewoo for the process units.”

“To comply with the end users’ ‘no China’ specifications and to meet the local EPC requirements, we leveraged sourcing from India, with final inspection through our Korea factory for control valves and Jacksonville, USA factory for safety relief valves. This project was a great opportunity to showcase our global breadth, and it would have been impossible to fully comply with if we were not as broadly structured,” he added.

As part of the project, Baker Hughes will supply nearly 1,000 valves including globe, butterfly, rotary eccentric plug, spring loaded safety relief, and pilot-operated safety relief to the offsite, utilities and processing units.  Baker Hughes supplies a full range of products to meet all applications, giving the customer the confidence to know they can relax with their PROCESS CONTROLLED.
