Yokogawa Electric Corp awarded project order for Malaysian RAPID

May 16/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Yokogawa Electric Corp. has announced that its subsidiary, Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia), has won an order to supply process analysis system integration (SI) services and advanced solutions for the oil storage facilities that are being built for the Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project in Malaysia, as per Plastemart.

To implement these solutions, the company has been appointed an engineering, procurement, construction & commissioning (EPCC) contractor.

The Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) is PETRONAS' largest investment in Malaysia and the PIC consists of RAPID and is supported by its Associated Facilities. RAPID is a project that comprises a refinery, a steam cracker and a number of petrochemical units. The refinery has a capacity of 300 000 bpd and the steam cracker and petrochemical units will have a combined production capacity of about 3.5 million tpy of Ethylene, Propylene and C4-C6 Olefin products.

In 2014, Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) was selected as a main automation contractor (MAC) for the RAPID project. After completing the front end engineering and design (FEED) process, the company received orders to supply CENTUM VP integrated production control systems and ProSafe-RS safety instrumented systems for the project's Oil Refinery, Naphtha Cracker, and Petrochemical plants.

Further to the success, PETRONAS recognised Yokogawa's capabilities and awarded an EPCC package to supply one analyser house with process analysers and sampling devices that will control the quality of the Gasoline, Diesel and Kerosene stored at this complex's oil storage facilities. For this project, Yokogawa will also carry out the design, engineering, procurement, installation, and commissioning of advanced tank quality estimator, blending property control, and pipe tracking system solutions. All construction is scheduled to be completed by August 2018, and commissioning will commence the following month.

As MRC informed before, in early 2017, Petronas announced that its new USD27 billion refining and petrochemical complex project in the southeast Asian country is on track for start-up in 2019.

As part of the new complex, Petronas plans to build a C6-based metallocene linear LDPE plant and a low density polyethylene (LDPE)/ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) swing plant at its greenfield integrated refinery and petrochemical complex in southern Johor state by mid-2019. The proposed metallocene LLDPE will have a capacity of 350,000 tpa, while the LDPE/EVA will have a capacity of about 150,000 tpa. The two plants are part of Petronas' planned Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development project in Pengerang at Johor.

Petronas, short for Petroliam Nasional Berhad, is a Malaysian oil and gas company wholly owned by the Government of Malaysia. The Group is engaged in a wide spectrum of petroleum activities, including upstream exploration and production of oil and gas to downstream oil refining; marketing and distribution of petroleum products; trading; gas processing and liquefaction; gas transmission pipeline network operations; marketing of liquefied natural gas; petrochemical manufacturing and marketing; shipping; automotive engineering; and property investment.
