Nghi Son Refinery & Petrochemical LLC, through a contractor, has let a contract to a subsidiary of Foster Wheeler for the design and supply of a carbon monoxide incinerator package for a residue fluidized catalytic cracker at its 200,000-b/d refinery and petrochemical complex in Thanh Hoa Province in Vietnam (OGJ Online, June 7, 2013).
Under the contract, for which no value was disclosed, Foster Wheeler will design the incinerator in accordance with the CO emissions requirements of the new complex, the company said.
Foster Wheeler said expects to ship the CO incinerator on a FOB basis as a single module during second-quarter 2015.
The $9 billion Nghi Son refinery, currently under construction (OGJ Online, Dec. 2, 2013), will process Kuwaiti crude oil and is slated to begin commercial operation in 2017.
Foster Wheeler previously was let contracts to supply the Nghi Son refinery with two hydrogen reformers (OJG Online, Dec. 18, 2013) as well as to manage and administer the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor consortium for the project through completion of performance testing (OGJ Online, July 30, 2013).
The Nghi Son complex is a joint venture of Vietnam Oil & Gas Group, Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd., Kuwait Petroleum Europe BV, and Mitsui Chemicals Inc.
