JGC Awarded EPC Contract for Refinery Upgrade Project in Indonesia

Yokohama-Japan-- JGC Corporation announced today that, in partnership with JGC Indonesia, a subsidiary of JGC Corporation in Indonesia, and PT. Encona Inti Industri of Indonesia, it has received an order for engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) work for the upgrading of the Cilacap Refinery, located in Cilacap, Central Java, Indonesia. The contract, valued at over 30 billion yen, was awarded by PT. Pertamina (Persero), Indonesia’s state-owned energy company. Completion of this project is scheduled in September 2018.

The aim of the project is to convert the existing Fixed-Bed Platforming Process Unit to a Continuous Catalytic Regeneration Platforming Process Unit, and to newly construct a Light Naphtha HydroTreatment Unit and Light Naphtha Isomerization Unit, along with utility facilities, in the Cilacap Refinery owned by PT. Pertamina.

Through this project, production at the Cilacap Refinery will increase, and reduce Indonesia’s dependence on energy imports in response to the nation’s growing domestic energy demands. The project also aims to supply a type of clean gasoline complying with environmental regulations.

This contract was obtained as a result of Pertamina’s overall high evaluation of JGC: its performance in delivering many projects to Pertamina since the 1970s, JGC’s wealth of refinery construction experience, including revamping work within existing refineries, and JGC’s cost competitiveness together with its excellent technologies.

This is a complex and technically difficult project, consisting of construction to upgrade existing facilities. JGC will maximize the use of its existing knowledge gained through numerous refinery projects to complete this project successfully. Going forward, JGC will continue to work actively as an engineering company that contributes to stable energy supply in Indonesia to meet the broad needs of its clients.
