London, October 28 - Neftegaz.RU. Petrofac has been awarded an EPC contract, valued at around $640 million, from PC ORLEN Lietuva to support a comprehensive modernisation, environmental upgrade and expansion programme at its Mažeikiai Refinery in Lithuania.

The lump sum contract comprises EPC, start-up and commissioning services, as ORLEN Lietuva invests to expand the existing refinery complex, raise capabilities, meet the requirements for cleaner fuels and improve operational and carbon efficiency of the plant.
