KBR’s proprietary technology will be used to assist Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL)'s modernisation project at the Visakh refinery in India. Under the terms of the agreement, KBR will provide technology licensing, basic engineering design and proprietary equipment to CLG for the Rose SDA portion of the LC-MAX unit.

Houston/USA – KBR has recently announced that its market-leading Rose solvent de-asphalting (SDA) process will be integrated with LC-Max technology, an advanced, patented, ebullated-bed residue upgrading process from Chevron Lummus Global (CLG). The aim of this move is to assist Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL)'s modernisation at the Visakh refinery residue upgrading project in India.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide CLG the technology licensing, basic engineering design and proprietary equipment for the Rose SDA portion of the LC-MAX unit. Rose is a cost-effective residue upgrading process that allows refiners to upgrade a larger proportion of their low-value residue streams into high-value products. It also gives clients the flexibility to respond to market developments in fuel, lube and petrochemical applications as well as reduce the environmental footprint of their products.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

"We are proud to announce this latest project award for KBR's world-leading Rose process," said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology Solutions. "Our innovative Rose technology integrated with the LC-MAX ebullated-bed hydrocracking process is an attractive economic solution and will enhance the overall refinery profitability."
