Houston/USA — McDermott's Lummus Technology is providing the PDP and license for its unique ethylene dimerization process. When operational in mid-2022, the facility will have the capability to consume 1.2 billion pounds per year of ethylene feedstock producing an estimated 28,000 barrels per day of alkylate.

Lummus Technology is a leading licensor of proprietary petrochemicals, refining, gasification and gas processing technologies, and a supplier of proprietary catalysts and related engineering. Lummus Technology's proprietary Dimer process converts ethylene to an unmatched high purity butene-2 feed stream ideal for producing an alkylate with a higher-octane value. Higher quality alkylate is used for blending cleaner-burning gasoline required by the demands of modern and future high-performance engines.
