Oman’s Orpic awards FEED work to CB&I for new Liwa NGL, MTBE units

CB&I was awarded additional contracts by Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Co. (Orpic) for the Liwa plastics project in the Sultanate of Oman, officials announced on Wednesday.

CB&I's scope of work includes the license and engineering design of three units in addition to the previously-announced award for its ethylene technology and front end engineering and design (FEED) services.  

CB&I will provide the CDMtbe technology for a new 90,000 tpy high conversion MTBE unit, the technology for a 41,000 tpy butene-1 recovery unit, and the NGL-MAXSM gas processing technology for a new 18 million standard cubic meter/day natural gas liquids (NGL) extraction plant. 

The NGL plant will be the largest single train gas plant designed by CB&I.  

"The award of these additional technology contracts demonstrates Orpic's confidence in CB&I's technology portfolio and wide range of services," said Daniel McCarthy, president of CB&I's technology operating group. "Our successful project execution has a pull-through effect on the entire organization."
