Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (JEC) has received a contract to complete a feasibility study for a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant located at the existing Borealis production site in Kallo, Belgium.

As part of the study, Jacobs is preparing a front-end-loading stage 2 (FEL-2) conceptual design package for the outside battery limit areas of the plant and is complementing the process design package for the inside battery limit areas of the plant being prepared by Borealis’ technology provider. The study is slated for completion by mid-2017.

When complete, the new PDH will have a targeted annual production capacity of 740 kilotons per annum, making it one of the largest and most efficient facilities in the world.

“Securing this contract is the result of our long-standing relationship with Borealis and our previous experience working at the Kallo site,” said Jacobs Senior Vice President Chemicals Mark Bello. “A new plant of this scale represents a significant investment by Borealis in Europe. I am very proud that we have been selected for this study, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with Borealis to help develop this world-scale petrochemical plant.”

“We chose Jacobs as a competent and trusted partner,” said Borealis Senior Vice President for Projects and Technical Support, Thomas Abel. “Jacobs has carried out several studies and projects for Borealis in the past, and on the basis of this good cooperation, we wanted Jacobs to complete the feasibility study as well."

Borealis is a leading provider of innovative solutions in the fields of polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilizers. With headquarters in Vienna, Austria, the company currently has around 6,500 employees and operates in over 120 countries.
