GE To Supply Compressors And Steam Turbines For Large-Scale Ethylene Plant In Saudi Arabia

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/7/2007, Location: Middle East

GE Oil & Gas will supply three compression trains for a new large scale ethylene cracker plant in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia, which will have a capacity of 1.165 million tons per year when it enters commercial service in 2011 for Saudi Chevron Phillips Co.

The new GE-supplied compression trains will consist of cracked gas, propylene refrigerant and binary refrigerant compressors.

Saudi Chevron Phillips' existing petrochemical complex in Al-Jubail includes an ethylbenzene unit, cyclohexane and a world scale single-train styrene unit. Included in the current complex expansion are polyethylene, polypropylene, and polystyrene units along with required utilities storage facilities, feedstock and product pipelines, and port facilities.

"GE is honored to be supporting Saudi Chevron Phillips on this world-class project as we expand our equipment installation in Saudi Arabia," said Joe Mastrangelo, General Manager- New Units for GE Oil & Gas. "The utilization of our steam turbine and centrifugal compressor technology will enable the new ethylene plant to handle all process requirements."

He added, "This project is a milestone for GE on several levels: it reinforces our position as a leader in supplying very large compressor trains, it signals our continued development of mechanical drive steam turbines and it underlines our increasing commitment to the downstream segment, in particular ethylene. The project also builds on our 35 years of experience in Saudi Arabia."

The compressor trains for the Saudi Chevron Phillips project are being manufactured by GE Oil & Gas at its facilities in Florence and Massa, Italy. The equipment is scheduled for delivery to the plant site between April and June 2009.

WorleyParsons International, Inc. of Houston, Texas performed front-end engineering and design work on the project.
