Sable Offshore Energy � CCR Technologies � Shell Chemicals � Honeywell � Sonatrach � BASF � Lurgi AG

Sable Offshore Energy Inc. has awarded CCR Technologies Ltd. a contract to provide onshore reclaiming for its gas project off Canada's eastern shore, said CCR. The contract�which CCR says could be worth up to $2 million�involves the purification, or recycling, of 8 million l. of monoethylene glycol that is used by Sable in the operation of its offshore pipeline. Under the terms of the contract, CCR will deploy a mobile unit to Point Tupper, Nova Scotia, and begin processing the spent chemical. It will be purified and reused by SOEI instead of purchasing new chemical, resulting in significant cost savings for SOEI.

Shell Chemicals, a unit of Royal Dutch/Shell Group, has placed an $8.5 million order for a plant control system with Honeywell's industrial automation and control business to be used as part of an expansion project at its Geismer plant near Baton Rouge, La. The order, valued at $8.5M, is part of a 4-year global supply agreement that Honeywell recently signed with Shell Services International, said Honeywell.
