The Shaw Group Inc. (Baton Rouge, La.; www.shawgrp.com) says that its Energy & Chemicals Group has been selected by Sasol to provide basic engineering support for two Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) units. Shaw is providing the basic engineering package for the Fischer-Tropsch unit of Sasol’s Wax Expansion Project in Sasolburg, South Africa. Shaw’s scope of work includes proprietary equipment design and technology optimization. The project is expected to increase Sasol’s production of medium waxes and liquid paraffins by approximately 50%. In addition, Shaw is providing engineering services to Sasol Technology’s Fischer Tropsch Licensing group (FTL). The FTL is performing a feasibility study for the Sasol and Shenhua-Ningxia Coal Co. partnership. The feasibility study examines the potential for an 80,000 bbl/d coal-to-liquids plant in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region of China. Specifically, Shaw is supporting the F-T, water treatment, wax treatment and heavy ends recovery areas of the study with the FTL. “Shaw has worked with Sasol on F-T technology for more than 30 years and has designed approximately 96% of all F-T units in the world,” says Lou Pucher, president of Shaw’s Energy & Chemicals…
