Total lets contracts for Antwerp refinery

Total SA, through its wholly owned subsidiary Total Olefins Antwerp, formerly Fina Antwerp Olefins (OGJ Online, Dec. 21, 2011), has let two contracts to a subsidiary of Maire Tecnimont SPA, Milan, for the implementation of the Refinery Off-Gas (ROG) project at its 338,000-b/d Antwerp refinery in Belgium.

Under the first contract, KT-Kinetics Technology SPA (KT) will execute engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for a new, fully modularized ROG unit, which will be aimed at recovering and processing refinery off-gases that are currently burned as fuel gas at the plant, according to Maire Tecnimont.

Under a second contract, KT will perform EPC assistance for the modification and upgrade of an existing naphtha cracker unit at the Antwerp refinery to enable it to process the hydrocarbons streams recovered the new ROG unit and related operations, Maire Tecnimont said.

The overall value of two contracts is about $260 million, making Total’s ROG project one of the biggest investments ever in a European refinery, according to Maire Tecnimont.
