Engineering Contract CB&I to Supply Ethylene Heaters for Petronas’ RAPID Project
CB&I has been awarded a contract valued in excess of $ 200 million by Toyo Engineering for the engineering and supply of ethylene heaters for Petronas’ Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) project in Pengerang, Johor, Malaysia.
The Woodlands, Texas/USA – The plant will utilize SRT VII cracking heaters, which are the latest generation of SRT high selectivity heaters designed for cracking gas and liquid feedstock, to produce 1.1 million metric tons per annum 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 technology,” said Daniel McCarthy, President of CB&I’s Technology operating group. “The SRT heaters are used to produce more than 40 percent of the world's annual ethylene capacity.”
RAPID is part of Petrona’ 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.
