Indonesia: Technology Agreements Mc Dermott Bags Two Tech Contracts for Chandra Asri’s Petrochemical Complex
The project is expected to produce 1,100 kta of ethylene, 600 kta of propylene and 175 kta of butadiene by using Mc Dermott’s specialised technologies.
Texas/USA – Mc Dermott International has recently announced that it has been awarded two sizeable technology contracts by a subsidiary of PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk, PT Chandra Asri Perkasa, for the company's planned new petrochemical complex in Indonesia. Mc Dermott's scope of work includes licensing and basic engineering packages for Lummus Technology's olefins technology, including Short Residence Time (SRT) ethylene heater design and critical supply, and for butadiene extraction technology.
The steam cracker is expected to produce 1,100 kta of ethylene and 600 kta of propylene using Lummus Technology's proprietary, highly selective SRT VII cracking heaters. Additionally, the complex is expected to produce approximately 175 kta of butadiene using the BASF/Lummus Technology butadiene extraction technology.
Mc Dermott's Lummus Technology is a leading licensor of proprietary petrochemicals, refining, gasification and gas processing technologies, and a supplier of proprietary catalysts and related engineering.
