We are currently seeking to recruit a competent Contracts Specialist to join our team. AMEC has been awarded a $528 million (--330 million) Project Management Consultancy (PMC) contract by the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) for a new oil refinery at Al Zour. When completed in 2018 the multi-billion dollar refinery is expected to be the largest in the Middle East and will increase Kuwait's refinery capacity by 615,000 barrels per day. It will be a key part of Kuwait's long term strategy, producing cleaner fuels to meet its electrical power generation growth and demand while adhering to the latest environmental standards. The NRP contract award requires AMEC to provide a project management consultancy (PMC) service to KNPC to manage the ongoing work from its current status until completion. This contract is world class in nature using the latest in technology and only the top echelon of world contractors pre-qualified to bid for the PMC contract. The contract has been tracked by the MENA region for several years and its award to AMEC is a major coup for us in the region. The duration of the project is 5-6 years and the capital value of the project is approx $14.5 billion. The tendered value of the PMC contract is approx $520 million. The PMC contract will involve upwards of 250 AMEC people at peak and we will be managing 7 major EPC contracts (yet to be awarded) each of value greater about $2 billion. The core AMEC team will be based in Kuwait with 'away teams' based in EPC contractor offices around the world for a substantial part of the contract. Locally AMEC have good experience and knowledge of what such a PMC will entail - it will be similar in nature to another current Kuwait PMC contract in several aspects including multi-package multi-location delivery with people spread around the world managing various different EPC contractors. Role Requirements Degree with 12 years total experience and 5 years in similar role. Refinery experience mandatory.
