Russia: Plant Expansion Lummus Technology Secures Master Licensor Contract
PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim has selected Lummus Technology’s ethylbenzene, styrene monomer, ethylene dimerization and olefins conversion technologies for the expansion of its olefins production facility in Nizhnekamsk, Russia.
Houston/USA – Lummus Technology has recently announced that it has been awarded a master licensor contract by PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim for its ethylbenzene, styrene monomer, ethylene dimerization and olefins conversion technologies. These four plants will be part of the expansion of an olefins production facility in Nizhnekamsk, Russia. The dimerization and olefins conversion units will be the first in Russia.
“For nearly half of a century, Lummus and PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim have had a strong and collaborative partnership,” said Leon de Bruyn, Lummus Technology’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Lummus was selected for its superior technologies to help Nizhnekamskneftekhim extend their product slate, and we are grateful for the trust by this important client in our ability to support them for many years to come.”
Lummus’ scope includes the technology license and basic engineering for the ethylbenzene, styrene monomer, ethylene dimerization and olefins conversion units. Once complete, the units will produce 250 KTA of ethylbenzene via the Ebone technology, 250 KTA of styrene monomer via the Classic SM technology and 150 KTA of polymer grade propylene production via olefins metathesis chemistry using Lummus’ ethylene dimerization (Dimer) and olefins conversion technologies (OCT).
