Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract for the basic engineering design of a new hydrogen production unit, based on the company’s Terrace-Wall steam reforming technology, to be built at the Atyrau refinery in Kazakhstan.

Atyrau is a member of the JS National Company “KazMunayGas” group, which is the leading national oil and gas company of Kazakhstan.

The contract was awarded to Foster Wheeler by OJSC Omskneftekhimproekt, the project engineering contractor for the deep oil conversion complex, a major revamp and modernization of the Atyrau refinery.

The main purpose of this project is to increase the oil conversion rate and production of all types of motor fuels to meet Euro IV and Euro V standards.

The refinery will, as a result of this modernization, require additional volumes of high-purity hydrogen.

The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed and was included in the company’s first-quarter 2011 bookings.

The new hydrogen unit, which will use high olefinic LPG as the main feedstock and natural gas as the alternate feedstock, will be designed to produce 24,000 normal cubic meters/hour (Nm3 /h) of pure hydrogen.

The basic design package is scheduled for completion during the third quarter of 2011.
