Honeywell UOP Wins KIPIC Contract

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/23/2019, Location: Middle East

Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Co. (KIPIC) has awarded reconfiguration of refining and petrochemicals sections of its Al-Zour refinery to Honeywell UOP. The newly designed complex will increase the plant’s output capacity of fuels and petrochemicals.

Honeywell UOP will revise the configuration and capacity of the refinery’s gasoline production facilities, as well as supply technology licenses, design services, key equipment, and state-of-the-art catalysts and adsorbents to produce clean-burning fuels, paraxylene, propylene and other petrochemicals.

“When completed, this will be the largest integrated refinery and petrochemicals plant ever constructed in Kuwait,” said Bryan Glover, Vice President and General Manager, Petrochemicals & Refining Technologies at Honeywell UOP. “In addition to aromatics and propylene, the Euro-V fuels it will produce will be the cornerstone of Kuwait’s clean fuels initiative.”

The refinery’s gasoline section will include a world-scale 98 000 bpd RFCC complex for production of propylene, gasoline, and petrochemical aromatics, and a UOP SelectfiningTM unit to produce low-sulfur gasoline blending components. Two UOP Merox™ units will be used to treat propane for propylene production, and isobutane to make clean-fuels blending components. Also included is an 11 800 bpd Butamer™ unit to convert normal butane to isobutane.

The petrochemicals section includes an aromatics complex that will produce 1.4 million tpy of paraxylene. It will use the latest generation LD Parex™ aromatics technology, including the Sulfolane™, Isomar™ and Tatoray™ processes. The CCR Platforming™ unit and naphtha hydrotreater have been expanded to meet the needs of the larger gasoline and aromatics complexes.
