Lummus Technology, a CB&I company, has been awarded a contract by CJSC Vostochnaya Neftechimicheskaya (VNHK), a subsidiary of OJSC Rosneft, for the license and basic engineering of a naphtha steam-cracking unit and a butadiene- and benzene-extraction unit for VNHKs new petrochemical complex in Russia.
The steam-cracking unit, which will reportedly be the worlds largest, is designed to produce more than 1.4 million metric tpy of ethylene and more than 600,000 metric tpy of propylene, using the latest advances in the Lummus SRT-VII heater technology. The butadiene unit is designed to produce 230,000 metric tpy of benzene and approximately 200,000 metric tpy of butadiene. It will use Lummus/BASF butadiene-extraction technology.
Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has a framework contract from Gassnova SF for its CO2 Capture Mongstad (CCM) Project at the Mongstad refinery site in Norway.
Jacobs will provide engineering and technical assistance services to support the installation of a large-scale carbon-dioxide (CO2) capture plant for a combined heat and power (CHP) plant at the refinery. The CHP plant is integrated with the refinery and includes fuel gas/electricity exchange with the Troll gas field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
The CCM Project, which is in an early development stage, is funded by the Norwegian State and being undertaken by a joint venture between Gassnova SF and Statoil ASA.
Alfa Laval has won an order for compact heat exchangers from a refinery in Russia. The compact heat exchangers will be used in the refinery distillation process where crude oil is preheated in different steps. They will reuse heat from the process for preheating the crude oil, resulting in a very energy-efficient solution.
The order is worth approximately SEK 70 million. Delivery is scheduled for 2012. HP
