Technip, was awarded a contract by the National Cooperative Refinery Association (NCRA) for the supply of proprietary reforming technology as well as engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the No. 2 hydrogen plant equipment at NCRA’s refinery in McPherson, Kansas. 

The 40 million standard cubic feet/day plant is part of an expansion project which will allow NCRA to upgrade the McPherson refinery, according to company officials who disclosed the plan Thursday.

The project will utilize Technip's high efficiency top-fired steam reformer to produce high-purity hydrogen and export steam and the latest nitrogen oxide reduction technology to ensure minimum emissions. The contract covers engineering, fabrication, supply, installation, pre-commissioning and start-up assistance.

Technip’s operating center in Claremont, California, will execute the project, which is scheduled for completion by the first semester of 2015.

"We are pleased to have been awarded this project, which is our third for NCRA at this site," said Stan Knez, Technip’s senior vice president for process technology.

"Previously, we provided a 34 million standard cubic foot per day hydrogen plant and subsequently, executed an expansion project on the same plant. This experience has given us a strong foundation upon which we will provide our technology and services for this important upgrade project.”

Technip was awarded the contract in consortium with its construction partner Performance Contractors.
