Mcdermott has been awarded a sizeable technology contract by PT Chandra Asri Perkasa for the detailed engineering of 8 proprietary SRT (Short Residence Time) ethylene cracking heaters at the Chandra Asri Perkasa (CAP2) ethylene plant in Cilegon, Indonesia. The engineering company also announced an EPC contract awarded by BP Trinidad & Tobago of the Cassia Compression Platform.
Houston/USA — The unit in Indonesia will utilize Lummus Technology's SRT pyrolysis heater technology to produce 1,100 KTA of ethylene and 600 KTA of propylene. This award follows the company's announcement in April 2018 of a contract for the license and basic engineering of the ethylene plant at this facility.
Daniel M. McCarthy, Executive Vice President of Mcdermott's Lummus Technology business, says that Lummus Technology's SRT heaters allowed for higher yields and plant reliability while reducing emissions and operating costs. Once complete, this complex is to be one of the largest in Indonesia, helping to satisfy the country's growing demand for petrochemical products.
EPC Contract for Cassia Compression Project
The engineering company also received a significant contract award by BP Trinidad & Tobago for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the Cassia Compression Platform, located 57 kilometers southeast off the coast of Trinidad.
The company will provide engineering, procurement, construction, hook-up and commissioning of the 8,928 ton Cassia C topsides, a 3,747 ton jacket and a 793 ton bridge to link Cassia C with the existing Cassia B platform that currently sits in 68 meters of water. The scope also includes Brownfield modifications at Cassia B. The compression platform will be fabricated and constructed at the service provider's world-class fabrication facility in Altamira, Mexico — where another recently delivered project for bp TT, Angelin, was fabricated. Trinidad Offshore Fabrication Company, a fabricator in Trinidad, will fabricate the jacket and the bridge landing frame.
This EPC contract follows the completion of a detailed engineering and long lead procurement services contract McDermott completed for Cassia C earlier this year, as well as the completion of the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract of the Angelin project for bp TT.
Cassia C is bp TT's third Cassia platform, handling gas coming from its operations in the prolific Columbus basin. Cassia C will receive 1.2 billion standard cubic feet per day (BSCFD) of hydrocarbon gas through new piping from Cassia B across the bridge. The gas will be compressed in three gas turbine driven compressors and returned to Cassia B for export. Liquids from Cassia C and Cassia B will be combined and boosted for export.
