JGC Wins Oil Refinery Expansion Project in Venezuela
JGC Corporation has been awarded a contract for the detail engineering, procurement support and construction management services associated with constructing heavy crude oil upgrading facilities in the Puerto La Cruz oil refinery by PDVSA Petroleo, S.A. (PDVSA), Venezeula's state-run oil company. JGC will undertake the project as leader of a consortium including Chiyoda Corporation and INELECTRA, a Venezuelan engineering company.

The Puerto la Cruz oil refinery is located about 300 km east of Caracas, the Venezuelan capital. The cost-reimbursable contract calls for the construction of heavy crude oil upgrading facilities with a capacity of 210,000 barrels/day. The facilities will be first in the world to commercially employ the HDH Plus® heavy crude oil cracking process technology, which was developed independently by PDVSA. The Puerto La Cruz refinery currently specializes in light crude oil products, and addition of heavy crude oil facilities is expected to bring a large increase in revenue as well as enabling more efficient use of non-renewable petroleum resources, making this project a significant asset to the Venezuelan economy. The total investment of client is estimated approximately US$ 5 billion.

In 2007, JGC was awarded a contract for the FEED (Front End Engineering Design) work for this project, and in 2008 was made the designated engineering contractor for the HDH Plus® process. In 2010, JGC received a contract for a portion of the detail engineering and procurement support work for this project, and will now be seeing the project through to completion as project leader for the construction of the actual facilities.

JGC'S highly advanced engineering technology and decades of experience with oil refinery projects were favorably evaluated by the client. Furthermore, JGC has a strong record of project success in Venezuela, including construction of an extra-heavy crude oil upgrading plant in 1998, and modernization work on the Puerto La Cruz refinery for PDVSA in 2001. For these reasons, PDVSA selected JGC to work with the HDH Plus® from the development stage through to commercialization.

According to a July 2011 report from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), estimates of the extent of Venezuela's reserves of heavy and extra-heavy crude oil in the Orinoco basin were confirmed in 2010 as being 40% larger than originally thought, making Venezuela the country with the largest crude oil reserves in the world, surpassing even Saudi Arabia. As the country with the largest crude oil reserves, Venezuela has been a vital market for JGC for many years, and JGC expects to actively expand its program management and enterprise investment business through many more heavy and extra-heavy crude oil development projects in the country.
