Aker Solutions

Aker Solutions has been awarded a five year framework contract by Deutsche BP AG for the provision of engineering and construction management services at its Erdöl-Raffinerie Emsland (BP - Lingen) production facility in Germany.

Norbert Kleine-Eggebrecht, Business Unit Leader at Deutsche BP, said: "The added value created from the improvement projects will serve to increase capital efficiency and support the implementation of our capital and revenue expenditure plans over the next five years."

"Aker Solutions' experience of working with BP at Gelsenkirchen and in other long-term alliance contracts positions us well to build upon our knowledge of local site processes and, to ultimately deliver quality services and capability," said Johan Cnossen, President, Aker Solutions' process business.

"This agreement provides the foundation to build a successful, long-lasting working relationship built upon mutual co-operation. Our common goal is to achieve continuous improvement. And, through our Project Execution Model and proven technology experience, we look forward to supporting BP Lingen in achieving its targets," he added.

Typical projects will cover expansion projects; revamp; support for HSE management, turnaround management and permitting; plus implementation of environmental legislative requirements; debottlenecking; as well as maintenance-driven projects. Project scope will extend across option development, feed studies, engineering, construction management and commissioning support.

The refinery first commenced operation in 1953, and its crude oil refining capacity today totals around four million tpa. Output consists mainly of petrol and diesel, jet fuel, light heating oil, chemical precursor products for regional consumption and for customers based both in Germany and in the neighbouring Netherlands. The company's products are sold via BP, ARAL and BP Refining & Petrochemicals GmbH.

Aker Process GmbH is the legal entity responsible for the execution of the contract.

BP-Lingen, which belongs to a group of fuel refineries with substantial processing depth, makes petroleum products from crude oil and other feed stocks. Additionally the modern refinery has been configurated to be well suited for the production of petrochemical intermediate products. It is considered one of Europe's leading conversion refineries. The refinery's nominal crude oil processing capacity is approximately four and a half million tons annually, of which approximately one-forth is German Inland crude, mainly from the oilfields in the surrounding Emsland region.
