KBR technology chosen for China propylene plant

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Feb. 13 -- Kellogg Brown & Root has been awarded a basic design engineering package for a 200,000 tonne/year nominal capacity propylene plant, to be built at an existing industrial site in Jilin City, China.

Jilin Chemical (JiHua) Group Corp., a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corp., will own and operate the production facility, for which detailed engineering has been awarded to China Petroleum Engineering Co., Northeast Branch Co.

The plant will use KBR's Sperflex technology, a fluidized catalytic cracking process that converts low-value refinery and ethylene plant streams with a high degree of selectivity to propylene, ethylene, and high-octane gasoline.

The unit will be the second of its kind in the world and the first commercial Superflex unit in the Asia-Pacific region, KBR said. The first commercial unit is currently in the start-up phase for Sasol Ltd. in South Africa.
