Honeywells UOP and Foster Wheeler Technology selected for Oman refinery expansion

August 10/2011

(Honeywell) -- UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, announced that Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries (Orpic) has selected UOP/Foster Wheeler technology to help process heavy oil and expand fuel and petrochemicals production at a refinery in Sohar, Oman.

 
Orpic will use the UOP/Foster Wheeler Solvent Deasphalting (SDA) process technology to convert heavy crude to low-contaminant deasphalted oil, a product that is further processed in refineries to produce liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline, jet fuel, diesel and propylene. The new unit will process 2.5 million metric tonnes per year of heavy crude to significantly increase the refinerys production of valuable petroleum products.
 

Honeywells UOP and Foster Wheeler in collaboration will provide the technology license and basic engineering package for the new unit, which is expected to start up in 2015.
