KBR, Inc has bagged a technology licensing and basic engineering design (LBED) revamp contract from LG Chem for its ethylene plant in Daesan, South Korea. KBR will provide LBED services to expand the plant's ethylene capacity by 230 KTA through the addition of two new SCORETM SC-1 proprietary furnaces and product recovery system modifications.

Post expansion, the total ethylene capacity of LG Chem's plant in Daesan, South Korea, will increase to 1,270 KTA. The capacity expansion project is part of a larger LG Chem Daesan facility expansion that will enable the company to produce additional high value-added ethylene derivative products.

The LG Chem Daesan ethylene plant is a heritage KBR licensed facility that had an original ethylene nameplate capacity of 350 KTA. Through close cooperation between LG Chem and KBR, the facility has been revamped multiple times over the years allowing LG Chem to remain one of the leaders in ethylene production.

"We are delighted to continue our close cooperation with LG Chem and that KBR's cost-effective, industry leading capabilities will play a key role in LG Chem's growth strategy to maintain its market lead and secure feedstock for high value-added downstream products," said John Derbyshire, president, KBR Technology and Consulting (T&C).

KBR has been a leader in olefin plant design, construction and technology development for more than 50 years. Since 1990, over 21 new ethylene plants with a combined capacity of 13 million metric tons per year have been brought on-stream using KBR's cost-effective, cracking technologies and flexible plant designs to produce ethylene, propylene and other byproducts from a variety of feedstocks.
