TechnipFMC has got a large contract, between $500 million and $1 billion, for the licensing, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up of Vietnam’s first olefins plant on Long Son Island, Ba Ria-Vung Tau province, from Long Son Petrochemicals. The olefins plant can utilise both naphtha and LPG feeds to produce olefins.

Designed as a flexible feed cracker, the olefins plant can utilise both naphtha and LPG feeds to produce olefins of up to 1.6 million tons per year depending on the feedstock mix. The olefins will help meet Vietnam’s rising demand for petrochemical products. The plant will also include proprietary licensed units and will be based on TechnipFMC’s proprietary ethylene technology.

TechnipFMC is executing the project in a consortium with SK Engineering & Construction of South Korea. TechnipFMC is the leader of the consortium and, as a global company, will execute all engineering, as well as the procurement of critical equipment from its operating centres located in Houston, USA, Rome, Italy and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Nello Uccelletti, president of TechnipFMC’s Onshore/Offshore business, commented: “Our reliable proprietary ethylene technology and proven engineering, procurement and construction capabilities were key factors in this important, highly competitive award and confirms our leadership in this market. TechnipFMC will ensure, with SK Engineering & Construction, that this ambitious mega project is successfully delivered on time and on budget, meeting the highest safety and quality standards”.

The contract adds on to the remarkable list of TechnipFMC’s references of onshore achievements in Vietnam, in particular the country’s very first oil refinery, the Dung Qu?t Refinery and the Phu My Fertiliser Complex. (SV)
