McDermott bags ethylene technology contract in Russia

20
Nov '19
McDermott International, Inc has bagged a sizeable technology contract from Baltic Chemical Company (BCC) and a sizeable Extended Basic Engineering (EBE) contract from China National Chemical Engineering No. 7 Construction Company Limited (CC7). The ethane cracking project is owned by Baltic Chemical Complex LLC, a subsidiary of RusGazDobycha.

McDermott defines a sizeable contract as between $1 million and $50 million.

McDermott's Lummus Technology will provide both the Process Design Package (PDP) Engineering and the license for its olefin production and recovery technology. Lummus Technology's proprietary ethylene steam cracking process is the most widely-applied process for the production of polymer-grade ethylene, representing approximately 40 percent of the world's capacity.

"Lummus Technology has been present in Russia for many years where we have been—and will continue to be—a reliable partner to our many clients here," said Leon de Bruyn, senior vice president, Lummus Technology. "We are excited to be selected for two world-scale ethylene plants by BCC and bring our reliable, high-yield and energy-efficient steam cracking technology to a project that has so much visibility in the petrochemicals industry."

The project is the largest ethylene integration project in the world. Located near Russia's shores at the Gulf of Finland, the natural gas processing chemical plant will be comprised of two ethylene cracking facilities, each with an annual capacity of 1.4 million tons. 

"McDermott's end-to-end infrastructure and technology solutions are an important differentiator for operators in Russia," said Tareq Kawash, McDermott's senior vice president for Europe, Africa, Russia and Caspian. "The potential future pull-through opportunities related to the Lummus Technology portfolio make us uniquely positioned to execute this phase and future phases of the project."

McDermott has previously partnered with CC7 on the Afipsky Hydrocracker project and the ongoing Lukoil Delayed Coker Unit project.

The extended basic engineering work will primarily be executed from McDermott's downstream Centers of Excellence in The Hague and Brno, Czech Republic.

Work on the project will begin immediately.
