Lurgi to supply units for Gdansk refinery upgrade

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Oct. 10 -- Grupa Lotus SA has let a €182 million contract to Lurgi SA for the construction of an oil distillation unit, a vacuum distillation unit, and a hydrogen plant for its 120,000 b/cd refinery in Gdansk, Poland.

The oil and vacuum distillation complex will have total capacity of 4.5 million tonnes/year. The hydrogen plant, which is designed to process various feedstocks such as natural gas, naphtha, and liquid petroleum gas, will have a capacity of 7 tonnes/hr. It is slated to be commissioned in second half 2009.

The contract follows the €472 million lump-sum, turnkey contract awarded in July 2006 to Technip for design of the 45,000 b/d mild hydrocracking unit for the Gdansk refinery. This unit is expected to go on stream in fourth quarter 2010 (OGJ Online, July 18, 2007).

The projects form part of Lotos' comprehensive technical upgrade program to increase throughput capacity at the Gdansk refinery by 75%, to 10.5 million tonnes/year.
