Early Engineering Projects: Bandar Abbas Refinery

May 1990
Bandar Abbas Refinery, one of the largest in the Middle East with a refining capacity of more than 300,000 bpd, was constructed in an area of 7 square kilometers near the city of Bandar Abbas in southern Iran.
The feed for the refinery is the heavy crude plus some condensate which is transferred from Sarkhoon gas treating plant. A part of production is exported, while the remaining is supplied to local markets in order to meet the demand of the southern parts of Iran, and moreover, the central regions, for which, the 450 km long 26” pipeline of Bandar Abbas-Rafsanjan is used.

First Construction Project: Isfahan Lube Oil Complex

August 1992
The construction, erection and pre-commissioning of Isfahan Lube Oil Complex in vicinity of Isfahan Refinery was the first construction project undertaken by Alkam Group at its infancy. The project is also considered as a striking milestone in Iranian oil industry, because the successful completion of the project was a proof of capabilities of local contractors and Alkam at the top.
The project consisted of construction of Furfural and MEK Dewaxing Units producing 184,000 tons of base oil per year. Other units such as Blending Unit, Can Manufacturing, Filling Unit, Tank Farm, Loading-Unloading Unit and a new Cooling Tower were also constructed as part of the complex. Meanwhile, to complete the project, it was necessary to make numerous Tie Ins to existing process and utility units of Isfahan Refinery which was executed during refinery operation.

Establishment of Energy Industries Engineering & Design (EIED)

Jan 1996
Energy Industries Engineering and Design (EIED), founded in 1996, was initially formed as the engineering arm of Alkam Energy to promote the knowledge and technology for design and engineering. Since then, the company has also gained a leading role in execution of projects of national significance in oil, gas and petrochemical industries and is known as one of the most capable EPC contractor especially in downstream projects.

Beginning OF EPC Projects NGL 1200-1300

Nov 2000
The EPC project of NGL 1200-1300 was awarded to Alkam Energy in 2000. Gas and liquid gas factory 1200 is located 15 km west of Gachsaran, while factory 1300 is located 63 km southwest of the city. The NGL 1200 was launched in April and NGL 1300, in August 2004. NGL 1300 receives associated gas from Bibi Hakimeh and Rag Sefid regions to send them to Bandar Imam Petrochemical Complex after sweetening. Processing unit of NGL 1200 includes sweetening, recovery, compression, final refining and non-mineral water production units. The NGL 1200 is projected to produce 27,000 barrels per day of sweet NGL on top of 5.6 million cubic meters of light natural gas. NGL 1300 has a fractionating capacity of 22,000 barrels per day.

Individually, we are impressive.

Together, we are unstoppable.
