Contracts let for Bataan refinery units

By OGJ editors

Petron Corp. Mandaluyong City, Philippines, has let contracts for two conversion units in a major upgrade of its 180,000 b/d refinery at Limay, Bataan, about 150 km southwest of Manila (OGJ, Jan. 27, 1997, p. 74).

A subsidiary of Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering & Construction Group will conduct detailed engineering and procurement services for a 37,500 b/sd delayed coker and engineering and material supply for two coker heaters.

Foster Wheeler handled process design and proprietary technology for the coker.

Earlier, Petron let a contract to Axens to supply technologies for a 15,700 b/sd mild hydrocracker, 35,900 b/sd fluid catalytic cracker, 19,000 b/sd C4 cut purification system, C4 olefins oligomerization unit, two FCC gasoline selective desulfurization units with capacities of 8,000 b/sd and 17,600 b/sd, a 5,800 coker naphtha hydrotreater, and unsaturated LPG treatment units with capacities of 25,000 b/sd and 3,600 b/sd.

The process scheme will maximize production of propylene from the FCC at more than 250,000 tonnes/year.

Daelim Industrial of South Korea has an engineering, procurement, and construction contract for the overall project, which it estimates in value at $2 billion.
