KBR was awarded a contract by China National Coal Group Corp. to provide ammonia technology, process design package and technical services for two 1,660 tpd ammonia synloop units at a complex in Tuke Industrial Park, Erdos, Inner Mongolia, China.

This contract is a significant milestone for China National Coal Group Corp., the companies said. As its first chemical project, this marks the beginning of China National Coal’s development into the coal-chemical industry.

Due to restrictions on natural gas supply, new ammonia plants in China will primarily be based on coal feeds.

KBR’s experience with designing more than 200 plants of this kind enables the company to stand out among its competitors in the coal-chemical industry.

China National Coal Group Corp. is China's second-largest coal company.

In the next five years, the group plans to build five major coal production bases in Shanxi, Jiangsu, Heilongjiang Provinces, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (Yulin) and Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, it said.

These production bases will be integrated into the company’s existing core businesses; coal mine construction, coal mining equipment manufacturing, coal production, coal to chemicals and power generation, enabling China Coal to deliver across the entire coal value chain.

“We are pleased to be a part of China National Coal’s entry into the coal-chemical industry,” said John Derbyshire, president of technology for KBR.

“This project allows KBR to showcase its superior ammonia synthesis technology and promote our capabilities in this fast-growing market segment," he added.
