CB&I to supply ethylene heaters for RAPID Project

CB&I secured a USD 200M contract from Toyo Engineering Corp. for the engineering and supply of ethylene heaters for PETRONAS’ Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) project in Pengerang, Johor, Malaysia.

The plant will utilise SRT VII cracking heaters, which are the latest generation of SRT high selectivity heaters designed for cracking gas and liquid feedstock, to produce 1.1MTPA of ethylene. The complete steam cracker technology package was previously awarded to CB&I under a separate contract. “Our clients appreciate the high selectivity and reliability of our new generation SRT cracking heater technologyâ€?, said Daniel McCarthy, President of CB&I’s Technology operating group. “The SRT heaters are used to produce more than 40% of the world’s annual ethylene capacity.”

RAPID is part of PETRONAS’ Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) development and its associated facilities, which include the Pengerang co-generation plant, re-gasification terminal 2, air separation unit, raw water supply project, crude and product tanks, as well as central and shared utilities and facilities.
