Canada: Plant Engineering KBR-JM’s Ammonia-Methanol Co-Production Technology Chosen for Northern Petrochemical's New Unit
The ammonia-methanol co-production technology, jointly developed by KBR and Johnson Matthey (JM), has been selected for Northern Petrochemical's new plant in Alberta, Canada. The project will produce blue ammonia and methanol by making use of the latest carbon capture and storage technologies to achieve a carbon-neutral process.
Houston/USA – KBR has recently announced that it has received a letter of award from Northern Petrochemical Corporation to provide the license and basic engineering design for the ammonia-methanol co-production technology developed jointly by KBR and Johnson Matthey (JM) for Northern Petrochemical's new facility in Alberta, Canada.
"We are thrilled to provide our innovative ammonia-methanol co-production technology to Northern Petrochemicals for this project to produce value-added products from Alberta's abundant natural gas reserves in an environmentally friendly manner," said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology. "KBR and JM have developed this co-production technology that minimizes costs and risk by utilizing reliable and well-proven sustainable processes while reducing CO2 emissions."
"Northern Petrochemicals is pleased to utilize KBR and JM's respective market-leading ammonia and methanol technologies," said Geoff Bury, President & CEO, Northern Petrochemical Corporation. "This project will produce blue ammonia and methanol by utilizing the latest carbon capture and storage technologies to achieve a carbon-neutral process."
