Technip (Paris, France; was awarded by NOVA Chemicals Corp. the detail engineering, and procurement services contract for the Polyethylene (PE) 1 expansion project located at their Joffre site near Red Deer in Alberta, Canada.

The project includes the installation of a world-scale 431,000-ton/yr single-train linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) unit. NOVA Chemicals will expand its total Joffre site polyethylene capacity by approximately 40% and will utilize existing site ethylene capacity.

Technip, in addition to detail engineering and procurement of the new reaction section, extrusion section, and railcar loading section, will modify the existing purifications systems. Technip will also design the plant off-sites, utilities, interconnections, and other supporting units for the facility.

Technip’s operating centers in Houston, Calgary and Chennai (India) will execute the work under this contract. Work for this phase of the project began at the end of 2012, with completion of engineering in 2014, and systems start up in late 2015.
