Fluor Corp. said Monday that its engineering subsidiary has received a contract to modernize controls at three Amoco Oil Co. refineries. The value of the contract was not disclosed.
The agreement calls for the Chicago and Houston divisions of Fluor Engineers Inc. to update the refineries' controls by replacing them with computer-driven distribution monitoring systems.
Although the new systems will not increase the capacity of the refineries, they are expected to allow the plants to operate at greater efficiency and with reduced energy costs, Fluor said.
The refineries involved are located in Texas City, Texas; Whiting, Ind.; and Yorktown, Va. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 1986.
