Technip wins hydrogen reformer work for refinery upgrade in Venezuela

07.01.2013  | 

The contract covers the complete engineering, fabrication, modularization and procurement. This project will utilize Technip's reformers to produce high-purity hydrogen and export steam, and the latest nitrogen oxide reduction technology to ensure minimum emissions.

The Hyundai-Wison engineering consortium awarded a significant contract to Technip to supply its proprietary technology as well as engineering and procurement services for two hydrogen reformers in Venezuela, the companies said on Monday.

These 135-million standard cubic feet/day (151,000 cubic meters/hour) reformers are part of the deep conversion project being executed by the consortium for Venezuela’s state oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA), to upgrade the Puerto La Cruz refinery.

The contract covers the complete engineering, fabrication, modularization, procurement as well as pre-commissioning and start-up assistance.

This project will utilize Technip's high-efficiency top-fired steam reformers to produce high-purity hydrogen and export steam, and the latest nitrogen oxide reduction technology to ensure minimum emissions.

Technip’s operating center in Claremont, California will execute the contract, which is scheduled for completion in the second semester of 2014.

"We are delighted to have been awarded this project, which will utilize our state-of-the-art proprietary technology, after successfully completing the basic design package for these hydrogen plants," said Stan Knez, Technip’s senior vice president for process technology.

"Hydrogen is the most widely used industrial gas in the refining, chemical and petrochemical industries, and this contract further solidifies our position of market leader in this sector," he added.
