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.
