Grupa Lotos lets contract for Gdansk HDS unit

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 11 -- Grupa Lotos SA, Poland's second largest refiner, let a contract to ABB of Zurich for the engineering, procurement, and construction of a diesel hydrodesulfurization (HDS) unit at its 90,000-b/cd refinery in Gdansk, Poland.

The $130-million award is part of Grupa Lotos's $1.3-billion residue-upgrade project.

The HDS unit will enable Grupa Lotos to meet European Union requirements that diesel contain less than 10 ppm of sulfur, which will come into force in 2009.

ABB Lummus Global's business in Wiesbaden, Germany, will handle the work. Project start is planned for early 2009.

The unit will use Chevron-Lummus Global technology. It help Grupa Lotos increase production of ultralow-sulfur diesel to about 2.3 million tonnes/year.
