KBR’s ROSE technology selected for refinery upgrade in Chile

By Mary Page Bailey |

KBR, Inc. (Houston; www.kbr.com) announced that it has been awarded a license and engineering (LBED) contract by ENAP Refinerías SA (ENAP) to utilize KBR’s ROSE solvent deasphalting technology at their Bío Bío refinery in Concepcion, Chile.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide technology licensing and basic engineering design (LBED) for ENAP’s upcoming refinery upgrading project in Concepcion. ENAP will be using KBR’s proprietary ROSE solvent deasphalting technology for their 30,000 bbl/d plant.

The ROSE unit will split residue from a mix of crude oils into deasphalted oil (DAO) and asphaltene, allowing the refinery to upgrade a larger proportion of its oil intake into high-grade products. The new unit will not change the refinery’s total processing capacity but will allow a different product mix and will give the refinery more flexibility to respond to market developments and reduce the environmental footprint of its products.

“We are pleased that KBR’s world-leading ROSE® technology was selected by ENAP for its integrated refinery complex in Chile,” said John Derbyshire, President, KBR Technology. “We understand the importance of this project to ENAP and are confident we will further enhance their overall refinery performance and competitiveness.”
