Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

KBR,

Inc., US, has en­tered into an engi­neer­ing agree­ment for the residue hy­dropro­cess­ing unit at the Jor­dan Petroleum Re­fin­ery ( JPRC) Ex­pan­sion Project.

KBR will pro­vide the ba­sic de­sign pack­age for the unit us­ing its pro­pri­etary VCC slurry phase hy­dro­c­rack­ing tech­nol­ogy. This unique tech­nol­ogy is ca­pa­ble of pro­cess­ing a wide range of feed­stocks and en­ables pro­duc­tion of fu­els that meet en­vi­ron­men­tal spec­i­fi­ca­tions with­out fur­ther up­grad­ing.

The VCC tech­nol­ogy will be im­ple­mented at JPRC’s re­fin­ery in Jor­dan and will be the core of the re­fin­ery’s ex­pan­sion plans to in­crease pro­duc­tion to 120,000 bar­rels per day.

“KBR is com­mit­ted to the suc­cess of JPRC’s 4th Re­fin­ery Ex­pan­sion,” said John Der­byshire, Pres­i­dent, KBR Tech­nol­ogy and Con­sult­ing. “We are ex­cited to im­ple­ment our unique VCC Tech­nol­ogy and con­trib­ute to the suc­cess of this im­por­tant and pres­ti­gious project.” “With its re­cent im­ple­men­ta­tion in Rus­sia and China, VCC tech­nol­ogy has emerged as the most suc­cess­ful slurry phase hy­dro­c­rack­ing tech­nol­ogy to re­li­ably pro­duce high qual­ity fin­ished prod­ucts from heavy feeds,” he added.
