HOUSTON, Apr. 13
-- Kazakhstan Petrochemical Industries Inc. LLP, Almaty, has awarded Lummus Technology, a CB&I company, a contract for the license and basic engineering of a propane dehydrogenation unit and a polypropylene plant, both to be part of KPI's gas processing complex planned for the western Atyrau region.

Each unit will have a design capacity of 500,000 tonnes/year.

The propane dehydrogenation unit will use the CATOFIN technology to convert propane to propylene. The polypropylene plant will use the Novolen advanced gas-phase polypropylene technology, which will enable KPI to produce polypropylene products for local and export markets, said the CB&I announcement.

KPI is registered under the laws of the Republic of Kazakhstan with the aim to develop and operate a worldscale gas-to-polymers complex in western Kazakhstan.
