McDermott awarded polypropylene technology contract in India

May 17/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- McDermott International, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a sizeable technology contract by Chennai Petroleum Corporation Limited (CPCL), a group company of IndianOil, for the license, basic engineering design and proprietary catalyst supply for a 475 KTA (Kilo Tons per Annum) polypropylene (PP) plant in Nagapattinam, Tamil Nadu, India, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The plant will use Lummus' proprietary Novolen reactors and proprietary NHP® catalyst and will have the capability to produce a full range of leading PP products for the Indian and regional markets.

"This license award is our fourth recent polypropylene technology award in India, and places Novolen technology number one for licensed PP capacity in India, with a total capacity of 3,100 kilo tons per annum," said Leon de Bruyn, Senior Vice President of McDermott's Lummus Technology business. "The unique compactness of the Novolen reactor technology and resulting efficiencies in capital investment and operating costs allow our clients to be more competitive in the global polypropylene markets."

McDermott's Lummus Technology is a leading licensor of proprietary petrochemicals, refining, gasification and gas processing technologies, and a supplier of proprietary catalysts and related engineering. With a heritage spanning more than 100 years, encompassing approximately 3,100 patents and patent applications, Lummus Technology provides one of the industry's most diversified technology portfolios to the hydrocarbon processing sector.

This award was reflected in McDermott's first quarter 2019 backlog.

McDermott defines a sizeable contract as between USD1 million and USD50 million.

As MRC reported previously, in December 2018, McDermott International, Inc. announced that it had been awarded a sizeable technology contract by HPCL Rajasthan Refinery Ltd. (HRRL) for the license and basic engineering design of two 490 KTA polypropylene plants in Pachpadra Tehsil, Barmer District, Rajasthan, India.

McDermott's Lummus Technology is a leading licensor of proprietary petrochemicals, refining, gasification and gas processing technologies, and a supplier of proprietary catalysts and related engineering. With a heritage spanning more than 100 years, encompassing approximately 3,100 patents and patent applications, Lummus Technology provides one of the industry's most diversified technology portfolios to the hydrocarbon processing sector.
This award was reflected in McDermott's third quarter 2018 backlog.
