The Shaw Group Inc. (NYSE: SHAW) has been awarded a contract by Dogu Akdeniz Petrokimya ve Rafineri Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (DAPRAS), a subsidiary of Çal k Enerji, to provide project management consultancy (PMC) services for a grassroots refinery in Yumurtal k located in the Ceyhan region of Turkey on the eastern Mediterranean coast. Shaw also will conduct pre-front-end engineering design (pre-FEED) development for 14 process units, utilities, offsites and marine facilities at the site. 

The planned facility, the Adana Dogu Akdeniz Refinery, will be designed to process 212,000 barrels of crude oil per calendar day. The crude will flow into the Ceyhan region from various sources, including Iraq, Russia and Caspian areas, and target the domestic and regional export markets. 

"Shaw has a long track record of executing industrial projects in Turkey," said Lou Pucher, president of Shaw's Energy & Chemicals Group. "Forty years ago we provided our proprietary technology and engineering for the first ethylene plant in Yar mca, and since that time, we have completed more than 50 projects for the petrochemical, power and refining industries in Turkey." 

The undisclosed value of the contract was included in Shaw's Energy & Chemicals segment's backlog of unfilled orders in the third quarter of fiscal year 2010.
