Technip has been awarded an engineering,
procurement and construction-support lump-sum contract by
Valero Refining Co. for two flare-gas
recovery units at its Port Arthur, Texas, refinery. Each unit involves
modifying the existing flare, gas-compression and gas-treating
systems to remove hydrogen sulfide. The recovered and treated
gas will be returned to the refinery fuel-gas system.
Technips operating center in Houston, Texas, will execute
this contract, which is scheduled to be completed in the third
quarter of 2011. The scope of work includes basic engineering,
project management, detailed engineering, procurement, construction support,
precommissioning and startup assistance. This project follows the successful
execution of Technips front-end-engineering design.
