In a win for sustainability, Kent has been awarded the Future Fuels Desulphurisation Project by Ampol, where they will support the reduction of fuel emissions by 2025.
This landmark project, which aims to support the longevity of the Australian refinery, is a significant award for Kent, won following a competitive tendering period.
Support from offices in Houston, Mumbai, UAE, London, Bogota and Calgary has allowed Kent to get to where it is today, as a connected global organisation. Kent’s global hubs will also be working together on this project.
The project is critical to meeting proposed Euro 6 fuel sulphur emissions legislation, which requires that all fuels contain less than 10ppm sulphur, in Australia by 2025.
Stage 1, Front End Engineering Design (FEED),Long Lead Items (LLI’s) and FID package will commence immediately, whereas Stage 2, EPC execution contract, will be developed for early 2023 subject to final approvals
Joe McCormick, Kent’s Executive Vice President, Asia Pacific, said: "We are excited to have been awarded Ampol's Future Fuels Desulphurisation Project, as this significant award has come after a competitive tendering period supporting the longevity of Australian refining. It's our first time with Ampol. However, we look forward to forging a long-standing partnership with them to support their Future Fuels business.”
