Pemex cancels ICA-Fluor Daniel contract

Jun 24, 1999 02:00 AM

Pemex has cancelled a $ 300 mm contract awarded to Mexico's ICA and Fluor Daniel for the construction of 5 sulphur-recovery units in Ciudad Pemex and Nuevo Pemex.
The withdrawal came after other companies interested in the contract protested Pemex's decision to award the project directly to ICA-Fluor Daniel without holding a public auction.
Pemex director Adrian Lajous announced April 22 that the company would sign the contract with ICA-Fluor, and explained that the job was awarded with public auction due to technical reasons.
Other unnamed interested companies refuted this point by arguing that they have technologies that guarantee a 99.9 % sulphur recovery rate.
Pemex held public actions for similar projects in the Ciudad Madero, Minanitlan and Salina Cruz refineries.
