Fluor Corp. is part of a joint venture team selected by Kuwait National Petroleum Co. as the preferred bidder for two engineering, procurement and construction packages. Facilities in the two packages will include a variety of process units, utilities and infrastructure for the Al-Zour oil refinery project in Kuwait that is expected to produce 615,000 barrels per day. Fluor booked its $2.6 billion portion of the contract in the third quarter of 2015.

Fluor is leading the joint venture known as FDH JV, which consists of Fluor, Daewoo Engineering and Construction, and Hyundai Heavy Industries. The team is executing one package in the Kuwait National Petroleum Co. Clean Fuels project and will begin activities on the newly awarded Al-Zour packages soon.
