KBR, Inc. has successfully completed the ethylene plant revamp project for Korea Petrochemical Ind. Co., Ltd (KPIC) in Ulsan, Korea. As per the contract, KBR provided its proprietary Selective Cracking Optimum Recovery (SCORE) technology license, basic engineering design and proprietary equipment supply services to expand KPIC’s existing plant.

As a result of revamp, KPIC’s ethylene plant capacity has increased from 486 KTA to 800 KTA. The revamp included the addition of two new highly selective SC-1 proprietary furnaces and targeted product recovery system modifications to provide superior yield, energy and operational performance.

“The close cooperation between our teams resulting in the successful completion of this project is testament to KPIC’s One Project – One Team spirit,” said John Derbyshire KBR president, Technology.

KBR has been a leader in olefin plant design, construction and technology development for more than 50 years. Since 1990, over 20 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 by-products from a variety of feedstocks.
