Russian cracking complex

Foster Wheeler Ltd has announced that its UK subsidiary Foster Wheeler Energy Limited has been awarded an engineering contract by OAO Salavatnefteorgsintez (SNOS) for a multi-million dollar fluidised catalytic cracking (FCC) complex to be built at the Salavat Refinery, Salavat City, Russia. The terms of the contract were not disclosed. Foster Wheeler will provide the first stage of design services, involving general co-ordination of licensors, a project cost estimate, advice on Russian design requirements, development of the required Russian permitting documentation, and initial detailed engineering and procurement to support an accelerated overall project schedule. Russian engineering companies well known to Foster Wheeler will provide specific expertise and support during project execution. The catalytic cracking complex will produce high-value gasoline and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and will comprise a fluidised catalytic cracker, gasoline hydrotreater, associated gas treatment units, and a dedicated flare. Vacuum gas oil will be supplied as feedstock from the existing refinery. Shell will provide licensed technology for the fluidised catalytic cracker, Merichem and Belco for the treatment units, and Axens for the gasoline hydrotreater.
