Houston/USA – Lummus Technology and CLG have recently announced multiple technology contracts with PT Pertamina Rosneft Pengolahan dan Petrokimia (PRPP), a joint venture between Indonesia’s PT Pertamina (Persero) and Russia’s Rosneft Oil Company for a grassroots refinery and petrochemical complex in Tuban, Indonesia.

"This award is an excellent example of Lummus’ distinct ability to provide integrated, multi-technology solutions, which is a major benefit for large operators in Southeast Asia,” said Leon de Bruyn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lummus Technology. “By selecting our best in class technologies, PRPP will minimise its risk of implementation for this project and achieve competitive process economics in the future.”

“The CLG and Lummus technologies we are licensing will lead to reliable and profitable operations for PRPP’s grassroots complex in Indonesia,” said Ujjal Mukherjee, Managing Director of CLG. “Our residue desulfurisation technology will help optimise their product quality, product yield, run-length, capital investment and operating cost.”

Current Challenges for Polyethylene Market and Projects

Polyethylene is one of the most widely used plastic resins in the world, accounting for over 1/3rd of the global plastics market.

While the market has been growing in the past, it is now experiencing a reduction in price that can be traced back to several factors including trade disputes, bans on single use plastics as well as overproduction. These factors are further exacerbated by the recent outbreak of COVID-19, which has an effect on the global economy.

This 11-page Expert Insight further explores reasons for the decline as well as possible strategies to mitigate these problems.

Lummus will provide the license and basic engineering for the following technologies: ethylene technology, including Pyrolysis gasoline hydrogenation, C4 total hydrogenation and BASF Selop selective hydrogenation technology; ethylbenzene/styrene technology; and Cdmtbe technology. CLG will provide the license and basic engineering for its residue desulfurisation technology.

Once complete, the olefins complex will be the largest liquefied petroleum gas steam cracker in the world and highly integrated with the refinery to maximise propylene.

As part of the license agreement, Lummus Technology will offer its Short Residence Time (SRT) heaters, a proprietary technology ideally suited to achieve maximum yields, at a later stage of the project. Later, CLG will also be providing Isomix-e proprietary reactor internals to optimise its state-of-the-art catalyst system for higher yields and longer run lengths.
