Technip wins new ethylene contract in China  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Technip (Paris, France; www.technip.com) was awarded by CNOOC Oil & Petrochemicals Company Ltd. a contract to supply its proprietary ethylene technology and process design package for a grassroots 1-million ton/yr ethylene plant in Huizhou, Guangdong Province, People’s Republic of China. This contract also covers technical support during detailed engineering, pre-commissioning and start-up. Key components of Technip’s ethylene technology for this project include: its Ultra Selective Conversion (USC) furnace technology preferred for high-capacity, low-cost liquid and gas cracking capabilities and its Advanced Recovery System (ARS) technology utilizing the Heat Integrated Rectifier System (HRS), which reduces energy consumption in liquids cracker designs. The products of this ethylene plant will feed other downstream units at the complex, including a 300,000 metric tons per annum grassroots cumene plant. The technology for the cumene plant is provided by Badger Licensing LLC. Technip’s operating center in Houston, with the support from the Group’s operating center in Mumbai, India is currently executing the project. Mechanical completion is scheduled by mid-2015.
