CB&I to provide engineering services and ethylene technology for Oman polyolefins project / Cracker to have 800,000 t/y ethylene capacity
Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries (ORPIC, Sohar / Oman) has awarded a contract to CB&I (The Woodlands, Texas / USA; www.cbi.com) to provide ethylene technology and front end engineering and design (FEED) services for its Liwa Plastics Project in Sohar / Oman. CB&I said the contract, valued at more than USD 40m (EUR 29m), includes FEED services for a grassroots 800,000 t/y ethylene plant and two polymer plants, as well as a pygas unit, MTBE and butene-1 unit, a gas plant and pipeline and related off-sites and utilities.

The ethylene plant will use CB&I's technology, including its “SRT” cracking heaters and its recovery section design, featuring low pressure separation and mixed refrigeration to minimise investment costs.

ORPIC, which is a subsidiary of Oman Oil Co (www.oman-oil.com), said last year that the Liwa Plastics Project was expected to require a USD 3.6 bn investment and include plants for PE and PP – see Plasteurope.com of 31.05.2013. Start-up is expected in 2018.

ORPIC was created in 2011 from the integration of Oman Refineries and Petrochemicals Co, Aromatics Oman and Oman Polypropylene.
