Duqm Refinery awards contract for new petchem complex

US-based Lummus Technology, a leader in process technologies, has been awarded a contract for technology licensing, process design package, training and advisory services, and proprietary catalyst and equipment supply by Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industries Company.

“Our customers benefit from our comprehensive technology portfolio, as we provide them with multiple technologies for one project, combining and integrating these technologies, proprietary equipment, catalyst, and services,” said Leon de Bruyn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lummus Technology. “This helps our customers reduce their capital and operating costs and assures them that they are working with an aligned project team that minimizes interfaces.”

The contract is for the planned new petrochemical complex in Oman with multiple units, including the largest NGL-MAXSM natural gas liquids (NGL) extraction units licensed by Lummus to Oman Oil Facilities Development Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of OQ.

The refinery will have a capacity of 48 mmscmd, one of the world’s largest ethylene units with 1,600 kta ethylene capacity, a butadiene extraction unit with 161 kta butadiene capacity, and a CDMtbe unit (145 kta of MTBE) and 1-Butene separation (51 kta of 1-butene capacity) licensed to DRPIC.

The arrangements also include the supply of Lummus’ proprietary catalyst and SRT (Short Residence Time) cracking heaters to the Duqm Petrochemicals Project.

The units are part of the Duqm Petrochemicals Project, which is the second stage of DRPIC’s integrated refinery and petrochemical complex, and will be located at Duqm on the Arabian Sea coast of Oman, approximately 600 km south of Muscat.
