AMOC awards Egyptian acid treatment plant contract to Technip-Coflexip

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 16 -- Alexandria Mineral Oil Co. (AMOC) has let a lump sum, turnkey contract to Technip-Coflexip for the construction of an acid gas treatment plant at Alexandria, Egypt.

Under terms of the contract Technip-Coflexip will provide detailed engineering, procurement, construction, precommissioning, commissioning, start up, and training.

The plant, which will have production capacity of 12 tonnes/day of sulfur, will be the first to be built using Thiopaq technology on an industrial scale, the companies said. Thiopaq process technology—which was developed by Dutch firm Paques BV and engineered for industrial applications by UOP LLC—converts acid gas from the desulfurization processes into elementary sulfur by a biological process. The sulfur produced is water-soluble and therefore has considerable benefits for agricultural applications, the companies said.

Start up of the plant is slated for August 2003.
