CB&I announced that it has been awarded a contract by SK gas, South Korea’s largest importer and distributor of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), for the license and engineering design of a grassroots propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit to be built in Ulsan, Korea. Startup is expected in 2016.

The unit will use the CATOFIN dehydrogenation process from Lummus Technology to produce 600,000 metric tonnes per year of propylene. “We are pleased to be able to provide this cost-effective and reliable route to on-purpose propylene to meet SK gas’ plans to expand their product portfolio,” said Daniel McCarthy, president of CB&I’s Technology operating group. “This PDH unit will be the largest in Korea.”

Propylene is a building block used to produce a variety of products including plastics and solvents.
