GAIL (India) to use Shaw technology for ethylene plant

The Shaw Group Inc announced it has been selected by GAIL (India) Limited (GAIL) to provide its proprietary technology and basic engineering for a new 450,000 tons per annum ethylene plant. Shaw also will provide support during detailed engineering, procurement and construction, and commissioning and startup of the plant, which will be part of GAIL's petrochemical complex in Pata, Uttar Pradesh, India.

"Shaw provided technology and basic engineering for GAIL's first 400,000 tons per annum ethylene plant at Pata in the late 1990s. The performance of that plant, coupled with our ability to integrate it with the new parallel plant, will result in capital and energy savings for our customer," said Lou Pucher, president of Shaw's Energy & Chemicals Group.

The undisclosed value of the contract was included in Shaw's Energy & Chemicals segment's backlog of unfilled orders in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Shaw has designed and/or built more than 120 grassroots ethylene plants worldwide. Five of those plants are in India, where Shaw also has participated in numerous projects to revamp or expand existing facilities. Shaw recently announced full commercial operation of a 1.3 million metric ton per year ethylene plant for Eastern Petrochemical Company (SHARQ) in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia.
