Russia: Spent Caustic Treatment McDermott Secures Contract for World’s Largest Polyethylene Integration Project
McDermott has won an engineering and procurement contract from Heat Transfer Technologies DMCC for a spent caustic treatment solution for Baltic Chemical Plant’s Gas Chemical Complex (GCC) project, claimed to be the world’s largest polyethylene integration project.
Houston/USA – McDermott International has recently announced that it has been awarded an engineering and procurement contract for a spent caustic treatment solution on the Gas Chemical Complex (GCC) project from Heat Transfer Technologies DMCC (HTT).
The GCC project is owned by Baltic Chemical Plant, a subsidiary of Rusgazdobycha. It is the largest polyethylene integration project in the world and is located near Russia's shores in the Gulf of Finland.
McDermott's scope includes license technology rights, basic design engineering package (BDEP), module detailed engineering design and full procurement of main equipment. The modularized solution for the spent caustic treatment solution will be an integral part of the GCC project and enable the project's annual production of up to 3 million tons of polyethylene.
This award follows McDermott's successful completion of front end engineering design (FEED) and ongoing early works on the GCC project.
