Foster Wheeler will manage the engineering, procurement and construction contractor on behalf of Pertamina which is building a 62,000 b/d RCC complex. When completed in 2014, the complex will include a RFCC, a new LPG MeroxTM unit, and propylene recovery and gasoline hydrotreating units. Merox is a trademark of US technology company UOP LLC.
The addition of an RFCC unit will enable the refinery to increase fuel production, especially high-octane fuels intended to meet European Union EURO IV quality specifications. The unit will increase the production of liquid petroleum gases by 350,000 tons per year and more than 140,000 t/y of propylene.
Umberto della Sala, Foster Wheeler’s chief operating officer, said:
“Key to winning this contract was our ability to manage the project from our newly-established operations in Jakarta, Indonesia, as well as our proven project management capability and our leading technical expertise in all areas of refining.”
