CB&I bags ethylene technology contract from Lianyungang
CB&I, a leading provider of technology and infrastructure for the energy industry, has been awarded an ethylene technology contract by Lianyungang Petrochemical Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Zhejiang Satellite Petrochemical Co., Ltd. The scope of work includes a process design package, heater engineering and technology license for two ethylene plants.

The two plants with a capacity of 1,250 kta each are located at Lianyungang’s petrochemical facility in Jiangsu Province, China. This design will utilise CB&I’s market-leading, low-cost ethane cracker flowsheet which reduces investment costs by eliminating plant equipment.

Once complete, these will be China’s first ethylene plants to crack 100 per cent ethane feed, signifying a new wave of ethylene projects fed by shale gas ethane sourced from the US. Currently, all large ethylene plants in China crack mixed feeds or liquid feeds.

“CB&I is already a leading technology provider for the Chinese petrochemical industry,” said Daniel M McCarthy, CB&I’s executive vice president of Technology. “Being the first company to license a unit in this new wave of ethane-only cracker projects in China not only enhances our business in the region, it puts CB&I in a better position to win future awards in the market.” (RKS)
