CB&

I was awarded an eth­yl­ene tech­nol­ogy con­tract by Lianyun­gang Petro­chem­i­cal

Co., Ltd., a sub­sidiary of Zhe­jiang Satel­lite Petro­chem­i­cal Co., Ltd. CB&I’s scope of work in­cludes a process de­sign pack­age, heater en­gi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy li­cense for two eth­yl­ene plants with a ca­pac­ity of 1,250 kta each at Lianyun­gang’s petro­chem­i­cal fa­cil­ity in Jiangsu Prov­ince, China. This de­sign will uti­lize CB&I’s mar­ket-lead­ing, low-cost eth­ane cracker flow­sheet which re­duces in­vest­ment costs by elim­i­nat­ing plant equip­ment.

Once com­plete, these will be China’s first eth­yl­ene plants to crack 100% eth­ane feed, sig­ni­fy­ing a new wave of eth­yl­ene projects fed by shale gas eth­ane sourced from the U.S. Cur­rently, all large eth­yl­ene plants in China crack mixed feeds or liq­uid feeds.
