Foster Wheeler on Thursday was awarded a contract by JSC Gazprom Neftekhim Salavat for the engineering and material supply of a new double-cell Terrace Wall steam reformer heater and air preheating system to be built at the Salavat refinery, in the Republic of Bashkortostan, Russia.

The value of the contract, which will be included in the company’s 2012 second-quarter bookings, was not disclosed.

The Terrace Wall steam reformer will be part of a hydrogen production unit being built by Gazprom Neftekhim Salavat.

The plant is designed to produce up to 27,500 Nm3/h of hydrogen and it is based on Foster Wheeler’s hydrogen technology and process design package.

Foster Wheeler’s work scope for this award is expected to be completed in November 2013.

The Terrace Wall reformer is characterized by a specific firing arrangement and sloped-wall radiant section design that enable long catalyst tube life and deliver the flexibility to maximize the reformer's operating flexibility, according to the company.

Foster Wheeler’s reformers can operate with ultra-low-NOx burners to meet tightening environmental emission standards worldwide.

Foster Wheeler says it has supplied over 200 Terrace Wall steam reformers to the refining and petrochemical industries in more than 40 countries worldwide.
