HOUSTON, Feb. 9
-- Engineering and construction contractors for Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Co. (Takreer) have awarded contracts for mass-transfer equipment to GTC Technology Korea Co. Ltd., a unit of Houston-based GTC Technology International LP, as part of an expansion of the 350,000-b/d refinery at Ruwais.

The project is to be completed in 2013. No contract amount was announced.

The South Korea company will provide mass-transfer equipment for the crude distillation unit, saturated gas plant, and residue catalytic cracking unit under the subcontracts awarded by South Korean engineering and construction companies GS Engineering & Construction Ltd. and SK E&C Co. Ltd.

The scope includes engineering and fabrication of a variety of mass-transfer equipment including high-performance valve trays, structured packing, grid packing, vapor horns, and FCC feed distributors.

The RCCU is, according to the GTC Technology announcement earlier this month, the largest single unit of its kind in the world. The contract includes a “giant‐sized pre-flash column, crude column, and residue fluidized catalytic cracking main fractionator.” The expansion includes 21 process units, off sites, and utilities, it said.
