Neste Jacobs to implement Borealis’ steam-cracker upgrade in Sweden  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Technology, engineering and project management company Neste Jacobs Oy (Porvoo, Finland; www.nestejacobs.com) and Borealis (Vienna, Austria; www.borealisgroup.com) have signed an agreement for Neste Jacobs to deliver the EPCM (engineering, procurement, construction and management) services for the upgrade of the process section part of Borealis’ steam cracker to enable increased ethane cracking in Stenungsund, Sweden. The steam cracker is one of the most feedstock-flexible in Europe and in addition to ethane, it can also crack naphtha, propane and butane. Borealis will import ethane from the U.S. for the upgraded steam cracker at Stenungsund, which is designed to produce 625,000 metric tons per year of ethylene. Borealis is investing a combined €120 million in the storage tank and an upgrade of the cracker, to enable the plant to use more ethane. Neste Jacobs carries out the project from its offices in Gothenburg, Sweden and Porvoo, Finland.
