Total awards work to Maire Tecnimont for Antwerp refinery off gas project

Maire Tecnimont has been awarded two contracts by Total for the implementation of the refinery off gas project (ROG) at Total’s Antwerp refinery in Belgium.

The ROG project is aimed at recovering significant volumes of valuable hydrocarbons that are currently burnt as fuel gas and at processing such streams in the existing naphtha cracker.

The overall value of the two contracts will be approximately $260 million.

The first contract relates to the execution on an EPC basis of the new ROG unit, aimed at processing refinery off gases and recovering hydrocarbons. The new ROG unit will be fully modularized in order to minimize site construction activities.

The second contract relates to the execution on an EPCa (Engineering, Procurement and Construction assistance) basis of the modification to the existing naphtha cracker unit necessary to process the hydrocarbons streams recovered in new ROG and interconnecting works.

Total Raffinaderij Antwerpen is one of Total’s six major integrated platforms globally, and the crucial link in Total’s integrated petrochemical complex in Belgium. This project is part of one of the biggest investment schemes in a European refinery.

This important achievement reinforces Maire Tecnimont Group’s distinctive competences in gas processing thanks to the technological expertise of Kinetics Technology and represents an important reference to best position Maire Tecnimont in the refining business.
