Sasol has awarded Technip, a contract to provide engineering and procurement for eight proprietary Ultra Selective Conversion (USC) furnaces for a world-scale ethane cracker and derivatives complex.

Sasol had earlier picked Technip’s proprietary ethylene technology and FEED for the cracker, which has an ethylene output of around 1.5 million tons per annum.

In a press release, Technip said the award for the complex which will be located in Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA, validates its strategy of early involvement to design an effective project execution scheme.

“Following the selection of our ethylene technology during the early stage of this project, Technip is pleased to expand our role by supplying the most critical part of the cracker, the furnaces,” said Stan Knez, Technip’s Senior Vice President, Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology.

He added, “In addition, Technip’s North America region also is playing a significant project role, having been selected, with Fluor, to provide engineering, procurement and construction management for the cracker and derivatives complex”.

Technip has widened its range of services and has reinforced its leadership in the downstream business since the acquisition of Stone & Webster process technologies in 2012.

“During the last 10 years, USC coil technology has been installed in 60 furnaces, preferred for high-capacity, low-cost liquid and gas cracking capabilities,” Technip informed. (AR)
