KBR has been awarded a contract by LG Chem

August 23/2011

(Plastemart) -- KBR has been awarded a contract by LG Chem Ltd. (LG) to license KBRs leading phenol technology for LGs 240 KTa phenol plant in Daesan, South Korea. The Daesan plant will be the second license by LG for KBRs phenol technology. The first phenol plant in Yesou was originally licensed in 2002 for 150 KTA and later expanded to 240 KTA. The new plant in Daesan will be part of an integrated, world-scale facility from cumene to BPA production. KBR will also provide the necessary engineering services in order to help LG meet its project schedule, which is targeting to be on-stream during H1- 2013.

KBRs phenol process is a benchmark in the industry and has been on the leading-edge of phenol technology for more than 60 years, said John Derbyshire, President, KBR Technology. KBRs longstanding relationship with LG Chem began with the license for LGs first phenol unit in 2002 and has continued with ongoing cooperation in many areas of the technology. Nearly 10 years later, we are pleased to once again offer our technology to help LG meet its growth objectives.
