KBR’s proprietary SCORE™ (Selective Cracking Optimum REcovery) ethylene technology has been selected by PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical in West Java, Indonesia, for an ethylene furnace expansion. KBR has signed agreements to provide the technology license and begin design work on the furnace design. KBR is the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton.

“This selection of our SCORE technology recognizes KBR’s superior technology offering in naphtha and gas oil cracking,” said Tim Challand, vice president of technology for KBR Energy and Chemicals. “This is the first time KBR’s ethylene technology will be used in Indonesia and is one of several new SCORE liquid cracking furnaces applied in the Asia Pacific region.”

The furnace expansion will allow PT Chandra Asri to expand its ethylene production at the facility to 590,000 metric tonnes per year by mid-2007, an increase of 70,000 metric tonnes per annum over the present capacity of 520,000 metric tonnes per annum. KBR’s SCORE technology features pyrolysis furnaces, which have the highest ethylene yield in the industry, a superior mechanical design for increased reliability and greater on-stream efficiencies.
