Bechtel will supply coker technology for the Rijeka refinery in Urinj, Croatia. Site operator INA Industrija Nafte will use Bechtel’s Thru Plus coking technology, a proprietary process for upgrading heavy oil into high-value, light hydrocarbon liquids, for its new delayed coking unit complex.

Houston, Texas/USA; Urinj/Croatia – "Previous investments in the Rijeka refinery enabled the production of products in line with the highest European quality standards and they significantly improved environmental standards in the refinery," said Zoltán Áldott, president of the Management Board of INA. "The decision on further investment is expected during 2014. The study prepared as a result of the contract signed today will be crucial to that end," he said.

"We are pleased to have INA choose our Thru Plus coking technology. The Thru Plus technology combined with our delayed coking expertise will increase the efficiency of the Rijeka refinery and reduce the production of heavy fuel oil," said Dan Olsen, president of Bechtel Hydrocarbon Technology Solutions. "We will draw on our extensive design and construction experience in the oil and gas sector in working with INA to support their goal of expanding the refinery’s capabilities." Bechtel Hydrocarbon Technology Solutions is a Bechtel subsidiary that provides technology licensing and process consulting services to the oil and gas industry. The company acquired the Thru Plus technology from Conoco Philips in 2011.
