CB&I has been awarded a contract by PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk (CAP) to supply materials for the revamp of existing cracking heaters at CAP's naphtha cracker plant in Cilegon, Indonesia.
The revamp will increase CAP's ethylene production capacity from 860 KTA (kilo tons per annum) to 900 KTA, enabling CAP to meet increased market demand for petrochemical products in Indonesia. CB&I previously provided the license, basic engineering and detailed engineering for the naphtha cracker revamp project.
"This award builds upon our long relationship with CAP, the largest integrated petrochemical producer in Indonesia," said Luke V. Scorsone, Executive Vice President of CB&I's Fabrication Services operating group. "CAP's naphtha cracker has been in service for more than 20 years using CB&I's industry-leading ethylene technology and pyrolysis heaters."
