-- 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.

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.
