TechnipFMC commenced its work on the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract with Assiut National Oil Processing Company (ANOPC) for the construction of a new Hydrocracking Complex for the Assiut refinery in Egypt.

TechnipFMC was awarded the project back in July. Per the contract, the company will cover new process units such as a Vacuum Distillation Unit, a Diesel Hydrocracking Unit, a Delayed Coker Unit, a Distillate Hydrotreating Unit as well as a Hydrogen Production Facility Unit using TechnipFMC’s steam reforming proprietary technology. 

The project supports Egypt’s energy transition strategy by minimizing environmental emissions in addition to bolstering economic growth in rural areas and reducing the government export bill.
