The processing plant will be comprised of two ethylene cracking facilities, each with an annual capacity of 1.4 million tons.
McDermott International Inc. has snagged a significant technology contract from Baltic Chemical Company (BCC) and an extended basic engineering contract from China National Chemical Engineering No. 7 Construction Co. Ltd. The ethane project is owned by Baltic Chemical Complex LLC, a subsidiary of RusGazDobycha.
The project is the largest ethylene integration project in the world. It sits near Russia’s shores at the Gulf of Finland, and the gas processing plant will be comprised of two ethylene cracking facilities, each with an annual capacity of 1.4 million tons. Work on the project will begin immediately and the contract award will be a part of McDermott’s 4Q 2019 backlog.
McDermott’s Lummus Technology will provide the Process Design Package Engineering and the license for its olefin production and recovery technology.
“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 extended basic engineering work will be executed from McDermott’s downstream Centers of Excellence in The Hague and Brno, Czech Republic.
