CB&I to provide technology in China

CB&I has been awarded an ethylene technology contract by Lianyungang Petrochemical Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Zhejiang Satellite Petrochemical Co., Ltd.

CB&I’s scope of work includes a process design package, heater engineering and technology license for two ethylene plants with a capacity of 1,250 kta each at Lianyungang’s petrochemical facility in Jiangsu Province, China. This design will make use of CB&I’s low-cost ethane cracker flowsheet by eliminating plant equipment and minimise the investment cost.

Once complete, these will be China’s first ethylene plants to crack 100% ethane feed. At present, all large ethylene plants in China crack mixed feeds or liquid feeds.

“CB&I is already a leading technology provider for the Chinese petrochemical industry,” said Daniel M. McCarthy, CB&I’s Executive Vice President of Technology. “Being the first company to license a unit in this new wave of ethane-only cracker projects in China not only enhances our business in the region, it puts CB&I in a better position to win future awards in the market.”
