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
The order is worth approximately SEK 70 million. Delivery is
scheduled for 2012. HP
