Jordan Petroleum Refinery Company Selects KBR VCC Technology
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.
