Reformer contract let for PDVSA refinery

Petroleos de Venezuela SA’s (PDVSA) main contractor consortium Hyundai-Wison has hired Technip to install two 135-MMcfd hydrogen reformers at PDVSA’s Puerto La Cruz refinery.

Under a contract worth $65-130 million, Technip will supply technology as well as engineering and procurement services for the two reformers as part of PDVSA’s deep conversion project at the refinery (OGJ Online, Oct. 17, 2008).

The contract covers complete engineering, fabrication, modularization, procurement as well as precommissioning and start-up assistance. This project will use Technip’s top-fired steam reformers to produce high-purity hydrogen and export steam and the latest nitrogen oxide reduction technology to ensure minimum emissions.
