Air Liquide and Samsung to provide FEED study for Sarawak Malaysian methanol unit

April 23/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Air Liquide Engineering & Construction (E&C) and Samsung Engineering have entered into a partnership to carry out the front-end engineering design (FEED) study of Sarawak Petchem's planned new methanol facility in Bintulu, Malaysia, according to Apic-online.

The plant is expected to produce 5,000 t/d of methanol based on Air Liquide E&C's proprietary Luri MegaMethanol technology.  Operations are planned to begin in 2023.

The FEED contract will be exclusively converted to a licensor, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contract at the end of the year, subject to a final decision.

As MRC reported earlier, in April 2018, Air Liquide signed a new long-term agreement with LyondellBasell, one of the worlds largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies, to supply oxygen to LyondellBasells new large-scale petrochemical plant which will be constructed in Channelview, Texas. LyondellBasells new propylene oxide/tertiary butyl alcohol plant (PO/TBA), is expected to be the largest of its kind plant in the world when completed.
