Petrobras awards catalyst cooler contract for Sao Paula refinery's RFCC unit

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Nov. 12 -- Petróleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) awarded a license to KBR, Houston, to add a second catalyst cooler at its residue FCC unit in the 51,270 b/cd Capuava (Recap) refinery in Sao Paulo. FCC catalyst cooling is a technology offered by KBR and ExxonMobil Research & Engineering Co. (EMRE) through an FCC technology, development, marketing, and engineering alliance.

Petrobras previously licensed the same technology from KBR for six catalyst coolers at three refineries in Brazil.

The installations will provide Petrobras with the flexibility to process lower-cost atmospheric residue feedstocks in its newest FCC units.
