Egypt: Alexandria Petroleum Company Occupational Safety and Emergency Response Feasibility Study

The Alexandria Petroleum Company (“APC” or the “Grantee”) invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the “Proposal”) from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to execute a feasibility study (the “Feasibility Study”) to assist the APC in its efforts to improve the health, safety, and environmental protocols of its El Max refinery (the “Refinery”) in Alexandria, Egypt. The Proposal submission deadline is 12:00 p.m., Egypt Local Time/ 5 a.m. EDT, October 1, 2024. The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $885,630 grant to APC from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency.

About the Grantee
The Grantee is a subsidiary of the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (“EGPC”), which is a parastatal organization under the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (“MoP”). EGPC has several affiliated companies through which it engages in exploration, development, production, refining, processing, transportation, distribution, drilling, engineering, construction, fabrication, maintenance, and training. EGPC typically establishes a specific company to manage each of its projects; EGPC operates nine refineries across Egypt and APC is the EGPC subsidiary that manages the Refinery.

Project Background
This Feasibility Study would support the Grantee with a series of assessments that define the safety, explosion, and fire protection issues to be addressed at the Refinery and will identify needs for new equipment, modification of existing facilities, the addition of surveillance and communications systems, and updated protocols and training. Established in 1962, the Refinery has an operating capacity of five million metric tons per year (“MMTY”) and since the Refinery commenced operations, there have been few, if any, upgrades to safety, fire, and emergency response systems. The Refinery’s aging equipment, combined with outdated or insufficient installed safety measures, pose a serious risk to the safe continued operation of the Refinery and, in the event of an accident, may cause harm to workers, the environment, and the local population.

About the Study
The objective of the Feasibility Study is to support implementation of an improved health, safety, and environment system; the activity has no impact on the Refinery’s refining capacity or operations. On the contrary, the Project’s focus is to improve the health, safety, and environmental standards of the Refinery, so that in the event of a fire or process spill, damage to the environment or GHG emissions caused by any such incident would be limited. The Feasibility Study will consist of a series of process safety studies including a Hazard and Operability Assessment (“HAZOP”), Fire and Explosive Risk Analysis (“FERA”), Safety Integrity Level Assessment (“SIL”), Quantitative Risk Assessment (“QRA”) and overall gap analysis for process safety, including firefighting systems, gas detection systems, and an emergency response assessment.
