2.0 OVERVIEW

GENERAL PROJECT SCOPE INFORMATION

KNPC is constructing a new world-class grass roots refinery in Kuwait to produce low sulfur
fuel oil to replace high sulfur fuel oil used in local power plants. This large scale refinery is
designed to process 615,000 BPSD of light Kuwait crude oil or 535,000 BPSD of heavy mix
Kuwait crude oil. This refinery uses latest technology to comply with stringent environmental
regulations to protect the local environment, and at the same time produces the latest
environmentally friendly ultra-low sulfur diesel fuels for worldwide markets as well as jet fuel,
kerosene, and naphtha feedstock for petrochemical plants.

State of the art hydroprocessing technology, ARDS (Atmospheric Residuum Desulfurization),
is used to produce the low sulfur fuel oil from the wide ranging mix of crude oils. The largest
ARDS facilities in the world are to be constructed, consisting of six world scale ARDS trains.
Over 500 MMSCFD of hydrogen will be produced in multiple trains to support the conversion
from high sulfur to low sulfur products. Other multiple train Naphtha, Kerosene, and Diesel
Hydroprocessing plants will reduce sulfur in their products to ultra-low levels of less than 10
wppm of sulfur. These ultra-low levels will satisfy the most stringent fuel specifications.

Sulfur is removed from processing by sulfur recovery processes which comply with the most
stringent regulations governing emission to the atmosphere, and convert the sulfur to
harmless solid form for transportation and sales to world markets.

These refinery processing facilities are supported by a full complement of offsites and utilities
infrastructure including; receiving and product shipping pier, electrical systems, boilers, etc.
Maximum recycle of water is practiced in the refinery to minimize effluents from the facility.

The contract will include detailed engineering, procurement of materials and equipment,
installation, and construction based on KNPC provided Front End Engineering Design
documents.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF PROCESS PLANT PACKAGE # 1 - SCOPE OF WORK


The Process Plant Package 1 Scope of Work consists of the following major Work Units:

Work Unit 01, 11 and 21 -- Crude Distillation Units*
Work Unit 02, 12 and 22 Atmospheric Residue Desulfurization (ARDS) Units*
Work Unit 03, 13 and 23 Diesel Hydrotreating Units (DHTU)*
Work Unit 04 and 14 Naphtha Hydrotreating Units (NHTU)*
Work Unit 05 and 25 Kero Hydrotreating Units (KHTU)*
Work Unit 34 - Saturated Gas Units (SGU)
Work Unit 06 Heavy Oil Cooling (HOC) Unit*


* Additional Unit specific details are as follows.

Units 01, 11 and 21 Crude Distillation Units (CDU)
The CDU consists of three units(CDU 01, CDU 11 and CDU 21), which are identical in size.
The three identical CDUs are each designed to process 1358 Sm
3
/h (205,000 BPSD) of
Kuwait Export Crude (KEC) or 1391 Sm
3
/h (210,000 BPSD) of Kuwait Heavy Crude (KHC),
whichever is controlling. The CDUs will normally operate in the Mixed Crude Operation Mode
with CDU 01 processing KEC crude, CDU 11 processing KHC crude and CDU 21 processing
either Eocene or Lower Fars. It is anticipated about 795 Sm
3
/h (120,000 BPSD) of Eocene or
Lower Fars crude will be available to be processed in CDU 21. However, if the supply of
Eocene or Lower Fars crude is less than 795 Sm
3
/h (120,000 BPSD), the balance will be
made up of a lighter crude (KEC or KHC).

Units 02, 12 and 22 Atmospheric Residue Desulfurization (ARDS) Units

The ARDS consists of three identical 728.69 Sm
3
/h (110,000 BPSD) processing units, each
with two reactor trains. Atmospheric residuum from the CDUs is pre-heated and then fed
through reactor catalyst beds in a hydrogen rich environment. The feed contaminants are
converted under high temperature and pressure to compounds that can be removed
downstream through conventional separation and absorption technology. The primary product
of the ARDS is ARDS Resid (0.5wt % sulfur content), which is blended with atmospheric tower
bottoms for producing 1 wt% Low Sulfur Fuel Oil (LSFO). This LSFO is normally pumped to
Kuwait Ministry of Energy, Electricity and Water (MOE (E&W)). There are also nominal
quantities of middle distillate products from ARDS that are sent downstream for further
processing in the refinery.

KNPC-EPCPQ-NRP-002 Rev. 01
Units 03, 13 and 23 Diesel Hydrotreating Units (DHTU)

Each of the three DHTUs will treat 410.72 Sm
3
/h (62,000 BPSD) of distillate produced in the
CDU and ARDS to produce Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, ULSD (10 ppm sulfur content). The DHTU
is also designed to meet Cold Filter Plug Point (CFPP) specification of maximum -5
o
C during
summer operation and maximum -20
o
C during winter operation when processing Light Straight
Run Diesel from CDU and ARDS distillate. The primary product, ULSD, is stored prior to
export. There are also small quantities of naphtha and LPG products that are sent for further
processing in the refinery.
Units 04 and 14 Naphtha Hydrotreating Units (NHTU)

Each of the two NHTUs will treat 120.57 Sm
3
/h (18,200 BPSD) straight run naphtha produced
in the CDUs to produce a naphtha product with low sulfur and non-detectable metals content
suitable for use as hydrogen plant feedstock. The NHTU will process all Eocene naphtha
supplemented by naphtha from other CDUs. Each NHTU will also be capable of processing
high nitrogen content naphtha from the ARDS Units, although this mode of operation is not
foreseen.
The primary product, treated naphtha, is consumed by the Hydrogen Production Units.
Units 05 and 25 Kero Hydrotreating Units (KHTU)

Each of the two KHTUs will treat 351.1 Sm
3
/h (53,000 BPSD) of kerosene produced in the
CDUs to produce low sulfur, high quality Dual Purpose Kerosene (DPK) and Aviation Turbine
Fuel (ATF). The feedstock is hydro-treated for sulfur removal and smoke point improvement.
The primary products, DPK and ATF, are stored prior to export.
Unit 34 - Saturated Gas Units (SGU)

The SGU consists of two identical 100% plants. During normal operation, both plants are
expected to be in operation, each plant processing 50% of the total feed.
The SGU processes the offgas streams and wild naphtha produced in the CDU; as well as the
sour LPG produced by the naphtha stabilizers in the CDU. In addition, imported fuel gas is also
treated in the SGU prior to being delivered to the refinery fuel gas system.
The SGU produces refinery fuel gas, LPG product, and naphtha product of petrochemical
grade. Full-range sweetened LPG is routed via pipeline to the MAA Refinery for further
processing. If the LPG cannot be routed through the pipeline, it will be vaporized, mixed with
the other fuel gas components and sent to the refinery fuel gas system

The HOC consists of a bank of common/dedicated shell and tube heat exchangers for cooling
the ARDS Resid (0.5 wt% Sulfur FO) product from the three ARDS Units and the Atmospheric
Residue product from the three CDU Units. The main cooling is done by a tempered circulating
diesel coolant. The same banks of HOC exchangers are also used to cool the crude oil
circulation during the CDU startup and shutdown.
The cold ARDS Resid and the cold Atmospheric Residue products are blended in an inline
mixer to produce 1.0 wt% LSFO product. A small quantity of ARDS Resid will be used as fuel
oil for the refinery

EPC CONTRACTOR PREQUALIFICATION QUESTIONNAIRE

KNPC NRP PQ QUESTIONNAIRE
Page 11

KNPC-EPCPQ-NRP-002 Rev. 01
Unit 32 Hydrogen Compression (HC) Unit

The HC Unit serves as a central compression facility serving the ARDS, DHTU, and KHTU
hydrogen demands by compressing high purity hydrogen streams from the Hydrogen
Production Units (HPU)into nominal 100barg and 200barg supply headers. Utilizing parallel
multi-stage compression trains plus a spare train, the compressor load management and
spillback systems satisfy hydrogen demand fluctuations due to hydrotreater catalyst cycles and
maintenance requirements. The required number of compressor trains will be determined by
the Vendor. FEED phase design basis assumes 6 operating plus 1 spare compressor trains at
unit rated capacity.
Unit 33 Hydrogen Production Units (HPU)

To meet the hydrogen needs of the ARDS and other hydrotreaters, facilities are provided to
generate high purity hydrogen. The HPU consist of four identical 161,863Nm3/h (145
MMSCFD) trains that use steam reforming processes to generate Hydrogen. Feeds to the HPU
will be mainly the hydrotreated naphtha from the NHTU and the supplementary ARDS
membrane tail gas. The HPU are also designed to operate on 100% imported fuel gas feed in
future. A pressure swing adsorption (PSA) package takes the raw product stream and
removes most of the impurities to yield a minimum 99.8% purity hydrogen product.
The HPU is designed to normally operate during power failure and generate high pressure
steam to support the refinery steam system. Various provisions have been incorporated for this
operation. The hydrogen product will be flared and part of the PSA feed gas will go to the
Reformer heater fuel.
Unit 35 Sour Water Stripper (SWS) Unit
The SWS Unit consists of three 50% parallel plants. This configuration allows for maintenance
of one plant while still providing 100% processing capacity. During normal operation, all three
plants are expected to be in operation.
The SWS Unit removes hydrogen sulfide (H
2
S) and ammonia (NH
3
) from the sour water
streams generated by various process units in the refinery by stripping in a column using steam
heated reboilers. The stripped H
2
S and NH
3
are sent to the Sulfur Recovery Unit, where H
2
S is
converted to elemental sulfur and the NH
3
is converted to N
2
.
The stripped sour water is cooled and the majority sent to the hot stripped sour water header
for reuse by the various process units as wash water or make-up water. The remaining portion
is sent to the Wastewater Treatment Facility.

KNPC-EPCPQ-NRP-002 Rev. 01
Unit 39- Amine Regeneration Unit (ARU)
The ARU consists of three 50% plants. This configuration allows for maintenance of one plant
while still providing 100% processing capacity. During normal operation, all three plants are
expected to be in operation.
In the process of refining crude oil to make low sulfur refined products, the H
2
S is removed
from various refinery gas and product streams using a circulating lean amine solution. The H
2
S
rich solution is returned to the ARU as rich amine. In the ARU, the H
2
S is stripped out from the
rich amine, and the solution returned to the users as lean amine. The concentrated acid gas
stream from the ARU is routed to the Sulfur Recovery Unit (SRU).
The aqueous amine solution used in the ARU is 45 weight percent MDEA (methyl-
diethanolamine). The ARU is designed to keep the lean amine acid gas at or below 0.01 mol
H
2
S/mol amine.
Unit 43 - Sulfur Recovery Units (SRU) and Tail Gas Treating Unit (TGTU)

The acid gas generated in the SWS and ARU will be sent to SRU/TGTU for destruction of
ammonia, extraction of elemental sulfur from the H
2
S, and oxidation of remaining
contaminants.
The NRP will utilize three 1000 MT/D Claus SRU with TGTU plants. During normal operation,
all three plants are expected to be in operation, each plant processing one third of the total
feed. When one plant is out of service for scheduled turnaround or maintenance, two plants
will be operating at design capacity.
Unit 75 Flare
The NRP will include a plant-wide flare system for hydrocarbon releases. The acid gas flare is a
separate system, Unit 92. The hydrocarbon flare system has independent high and low
pressure networks. The collected releases will be directed to flare tips for safe disposal via
combustion.
The hydrocarbon flare is a multi-point ground flare (MPGF) design split into three separate flare
fields. Each flare field is enclosed within a radiation fence and contains both LP and HP
stages/burners. Each flare field is capable of handling 50% of the total flare design capacity.
This would allow one field to be maintained with no reduction in refinery throughput.
Additionally, the hydrocarbon flare system will include a flare gas recovery unit (FGRU)
designed to recover the combined purge/vent flow from each flare header.

Unit 86 - Sulfur Pelletizing/Conveying
Unit 86 includes four (4) sulfur pelletizing packages, two circular storage tanks, and sulfur
conveying systems between the pelletizing packages and storage.
Two parallel circular stores, 86-A-0401 A/B, are employed, each of 75,000 MT capacity, for
stockpiling of pelletized sulfur within a protected storage environment. Together, the two
circular stores provide storage of one shipping parcel (60,000 MT) and 21 days sulfur
production at full rate.
A dedicated conveying system will transfer sulfur pellets from Unit 86 onshore to a traveling
ship loader located on the pier head. The conveyor, turning towers, and traveling loader
systems shall be provided with specific safety and environmental control features to minimize of
loss of product, provide for dust reduction and containment, fire detection and suppression, and
static electricity suppression.

Unit 92 Acid Gas Flare

The NRP will include two (2) 100% Acid Gas Flares. The Acid Gas flare system is mainly used
for collection of the releases from process units in the Sulfur block. These collected releases
will be directed to flare tips for safe disposal via combustion.
Unit 96 - Sulfur Storage Area
The liquid sulfur system contains four tanks, one of which is an operating spare. The four
independently operating 10,500 metric ton (38,400 BBL) storage tanks provide a total of
fourteen (14) Days storage.

The liquid sulfur tanks provide both surge and holdup capacity to dampen the effects of
process upsets and equipment service outages. Tank vents are sized to allow temporary
degassing facilities when the SRU sulfur pits are upset.

Two liquid sulfur transfer pumps, one operating and one 100% spare, are provided to send the
liquid sulfur to the sulfur pelletizing unit.

* Additional Unit specific details provided are as follows.

Unit 60 - Steam Generation Unit
The NRP requires steam for turbine drive pumps and compressors and for process heating
and process feed. The steam requirements for the NRP include High Pressure (SH), Medium
Pressure (SM), Intermediate Pressure (SI), and Low Pressure (SL) steam. This steam will be
generated from a combination of utility boilers and process steam generation. The Unit
consists of the following three (3) major components.
a) Deaerators
The treated make-up water and returned steam condensate will be stripped of dissolved
oxygen and carbon dioxide with SL steam in the deaerators. The deaerated water will then
be chemically treated prior to pumping to the boilers, as well as to other steam generators
within the plant. A phosphate-free, side-stream of boiler feed water is distributed as needed
for desuperheating needs throughout the plant.
b) Boiler Feed Water (BFW)
Boiler Feed Water will be produced in two variants - low pressure and high pressure. Low
pressure BFW is fed to process steam utility (SI and SL) generation. High pressure BFW
will be fed to the boilers to maintain the SH header operating conditions. It is also fed to the
process units for SH or SM steam production. Desuperheating water is used for pressure
letdown temperature control.
c) Boilers
The BFW will be fed to six boilers for generation of SH steam. Each boiler will include
continuous pilots and burners, a superheater with attemperator, a steam drum, an
economizer, a forced draft fan, flue gas stack, soot-blowers and associated ducting, piping,
and controls. The boiler water quality will be maintained by continuous and intermittent
blowdown. The controls for the boilers are in four categories combustion controls, steam
drum water level controls, steam temperature control, and burner management control. All

KNPC-EPCPQ-NRP-002 Rev. 01
controls are on the Uninterruptible Power System (UPS) ensuring steam production after
power failure.
The Hydrogen Production Unit has been designed to operate during a power failure and will
generate high pressure steam to support the refinery steam system. Refer to Unit 33 for
details.
Unit 61 - Air Systems
The air systems planned for the NRP consist of Plant Air (AP), Instrument Air (AI), and
Nitrogen (N).
a) Plant and Instrument Air
AP and AI will be supplied by compressors common to both systems. To ensure reliability
for the instrument air, process controls will be developed to prioritize the AI system.
Ambient air after passing through the inlet filters/silencers is compressed in three-stage,
inter-cooled centrifugal air compressors that are driven by a combination of electric and
steam turbine drivers.
The compressed air is cooled by an after-cooler prior to entering the wet air receiver, which
then charges the distribution header for the refinery AP system. A separate stream of air
flows through the instrument air dryer package and then on to the instrument air receiver
prior to charge to the AI distribution system.
b) Nitrogen
A Nitrogen Generation System will provide nitrogen for normal process and utility needs for
inert gas throughout NRP. The generator will use air supplied by the AP System. Additional
nitrogen will be supplied to the plant (via 6 tube trailers located in Unit 61) to serve
startup/shutdown requirements.
Unit 62 - Water Systems
The water systems planned for the NRP include the following:
a) Desalinated Water
Desalinated water is received from MOE (E&W) and fed into a pair of underground sumps.
From there it is pumped to the Desalinated Water Tanks and the Cooling Tower basin. Two
Desalinated Water Tanks are sized for three (3) Days allocation from MOE (E&W).
b) Polished Water



NEW REFINERY PROJECT
EPC CONTRACTOR PREQUALIFICATION QUESTIONNAIRE

KNPC NRP PQ QUESTIONNAIRE
Page 16

KNPC-EPCPQ-NRP-002 Rev. 01
The desalinated water supplied from MOE (E&W) will be demineralized, mixed with returned
steam condensate and fed to a mixed bed polisher for treatment prior to sending to the
steam system. The polished water will be inventoried in storage to provide three (3) Days of
hold-up to accommodate operational upsets in the treating system.
The demineralized water is used primarily as make-up to the Condensate Polisher, but is
also distributed to process and utility units. Two demineralized water tanks are sized for a
combined storage time of one hour.
c) Potable Water
Fresh water is received from MOE (E&W) and fed into a pair of underground sumps. From
there it is pumped to the Fresh Water Tanks and the Cooling Tower basin.
Fresh water is chlorinated for domestic use and stored in two tanks sized for three days
allocation. This water is chilled or heated as needed, and used in eye washes and safety
showers and supplied from one centralized system. Potable water to buildings is chilled.
d) Condensate
Condensates returned from the steam systems are treated and stored in two Clean
Condensate Tanks each sized for a working volume of approximately four hours storage.
e) Acid and Caustic System
A Caustic Storage Tank will be sized based on monthly consumption requirement. A 50%
caustic will be delivered in trucks.
A Sulfuric Acid Storage Tank will be sized based on monthly consumption requirement. A
98% sulfuric acid will be delivered in trucks.
f) Firewater
Treated effluent waste water is stored as the primary supply of firewater to the NRP
firefighting system. The firewater is supplied to a plant-wide underground ring main system
through diesel-driven pumps during a significant fire event. Electric motor-driven jockey
pumps will be provided for general maintenance of system pressure.
The capacity of the firewater system will be designed to handle the largest single fire

failure. The cooling tower basin will be sized to contain sufficient water to optimize the flare
system size. Make-up water to the cooling tower will be desalinated water or treated effluent
from WWTP.
Unit 73 HV Substations
Electric power to the NRP will be supplied by the national utility Ministry of Electricity and Water
(MEW), at 275 kV from the nearby Al-Zour South Power Station (AZPS). At the NRPs Main
Intake Substations, 73-MIS-01 & 73-MIS-02, 275kV is stepped down to 132 kV for further
distribution to 132 kV Hydrogen Compression Substation and Main Distribution Substations
and constitutes the High Voltage Intake & Distribution System for the New Refinery Project
(NRP).
Unit 74 - Interconnecting Piperack
Unit 74 consists of all interconnecting piping required to supply and/or transfer raw materials,
products, and utilities to/from various units within the NRP Complex.
Underground piping for cooling water, firewater, Accidentally Oil Contaminated (AOC) and
Continuously Oil Contaminated (COC) sewers, etc. are also included in Unit 74.
Unit 76 - Wastewater Treating
The Wastewater Treatment Plant collects the various wastewater streams into one of the
following six classifications. Each classification of wastewater receives different approaches to
treatment depending on the type and levels of contamination. After treatment, the various
segregated effluents will be evaluated for reuse in order to minimize effluent discharges.
a) Accidentally Oil Contaminated Sewer System (AOC System)
The AOC system collects and treats general surface area runoff, firewater, misc. utility
systems blowdown (i.e. cooling water blowdown and sample cooler cooling water
discharges) and other normally oil free and pH neutral waste streams from within and
around the individual units. The system includes dry weather flow pumps with an oil-water
analyzer specifically to monitor for any free oil that may have accidentally entered into the
above streams. The AOC System also includes impoundment basins for first flush and peak

KNPC-EPCPQ-NRP-002 Rev. 01
flow diversion. Should the AOC dry weather flow contain unacceptable levels of
hydrocarbon, water will be diverted into either the COC or High BOD systems via automated
switching valves. Should the AOC flow exceed the pumping capacity of the system (i.e.
during a storm or fire event), then water will automatically divert into these basins.
Impounded water will subsequently be evaluated for contamination and, if needed,
transferred to the appropriate treatment system prior to discharge.
b) Continuously Oil Contaminated Sewer System (COC System)
This system collects and treats oily water streams with low levels of soluble organic
components (Streams with low BOD). This system includes treatment to remove both free
and emulsified oil from the water. The streams normally sent to this system are
maintenance oily water drains, crude and products tank bottom drains, and utility area oily
water drains.
c) High BOD Continuously Oil Contaminated Sewer System (High BOD)
The High BOD system collects and treats water streams that are contaminated with oil
and/or organics that require removal via biological treatment. The system consists of
neutralization, followed by H2S oxidation, oil removal, biological treatment, clarification and
filtration. The streams normally sent to this system are crude oil desalter water and stripped
sour water.
d) Sludge Collection and Treatment System
The sludge collection and treatment system collects and stores sludge from the various
pieces of wastewater treatment equipment. These various sludge streams are transferred to
aerated tanks where the contents are continuously suspended and prevented from
becoming septic. The contents of this tank are dewatered using centrifuges. The sludge
collection system shall also be equipped with a vacuum truck disposal system consisting of
vibrating screens with roll-off box for the oversized material, liquid storage and pumping to
the sludge collection tank. Water recovered from the sludge collection system will be
returned to the front end of the High BOD System. Separated oil will be sent to the wet
slops system.
e) Sanitary Waste
A separate sanitary wastewater sewer system complete with lift stations will be used to
convey sanitary wastewater to the wastewater treatment plant. Sanitary waste facilities will
be included in several buildings. Sanitary wastewater will include its own separate biological
treatment system with treated effluent being used for irrigation purposes.
f) Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) System

EPC CONTRACTOR PREQUALIFICATION QUESTIONNAIRE

KNPC NRP PQ QUESTIONNAIRE
Page 19

KNPC-EPCPQ-NRP-002 Rev. 01
The ZLD system is used to remove contaminants from the WWTP making the recovered
water suitable for cooling tower make-up and as a feed stream to the condensate polishing
system. The ZLD consists of GAC filters and associated regeneration equipment for the
removal of residual organics followed by Microfiltration, three trains of 3 stage Reverse
Osmosis and 2 Brine concentrators. The ZLD system is designed to handle the normal
refinery flow plus a contingency that is specific for each subsystem.
g) Clean Storm Water (CSW)
The Clean Strom Water is an underground drainage system to handle clean runoff from
non-process areas such as roads & graveled area. The water will be impounded and will
overflow by gravity to the sea.
h) Emergency Outfall Line.
A reinforced concrete emergency outfall line is included in the WWT system to route the
excess water to sea.
