Lummus wins technology contract for new PP plant at Lukoil refinery in Bulgaria

October 12/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Lukoil is planning a 280,000-metric tons/year PP plant at its integrated refinery and
petrochemicals facility at Burgas, Bulgaria, said Chemweek.

Lummus Technology has been awarded a contract by Lukoil (Moscow, Russia) to license its Novolen polypropylene (PP) process for a new 280,000-metric tons/year PP facility in Burgas, Bulgaria. The value of the contract and the timescale has not been disclosed.

The contract work scope for the proposed PP unit to be located at Lukoil subsidiary Lukoil Neftohim Burgas 180,000-bbl/d refining and petrochemical facility on the Balkan peninsula includes the technology license, as well as basic design engineering, training and services, and catalyst supply. It will be the first PP plant to use Novolen technology in southeast Europe, says Lummus. Lukoil first confirmed it was considering a new PP facility at Burgas in 2018.

The refinery-petchems complex currently has capacity to produce 80,000 metric tons/year of PP for domestic use and export, as well as naphtha and propylene feedstock for olefins products, and various motor and jet fuels.

Lummus Technologys technology was also selected by Lukoil in September for a new 500,000-metric tons/year PP production unit at Kstovo, Russia. Kstovo is one of Lukoils largest refineries in Russia with a throughput of 17 million metric tons/year.

According to ICIS-MRC Price report, Poliom took off-stream its PP production for the scheduled maintenance on 2 September; the shutdown will take a little more than two weeks. The plant's annual production capacity is 230,000 tonnes. It is also worth noting that Ufaorgsintez also shut its production capacities for a scheduled turnaround on 12 September, the outage will last until 10 October.
