KBR, Inc has been awarded a contract to supply its proprietary Selective Cracking Optimum Recovery (score) ethylene technology to GS Caltex Corporation for a grassroots mixed feed cracker (MFC) for its project in Yeosu, South Korea. KBR will provide its SCORE technology license and basic engineering design services for a 700 KTA ethylene mixed feed cracker.

The new plant will be built by GS Caltex, a company owned by GS Energy and US-based Chevron Corp. It will use naphtha, liquefied petroleum gas and refinery off-gases as its main feedstocks. It will be constructed in the South Korean southern city of Yeosu where GS Caltex’s 790,000 barrels-per-day refinery is located.  The project will use KBR’s highly selective SC-1 furnaces for the highest yield and flexibility.

On being selected as the licensor for GS Caltex’s first ethylene plant, John Derbyshire, KBR president, Technology, said “SCORE technology is highly flexible and enables producers to maximise profitability through superior yield, energy, and operational performance.”

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 byproducts from a variety of feedstocks.
