Technip Energies provides proprietary technology for Hengli ethylene cracker China

May 07/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Technip Energies provided the proprietary technology and process design for Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Chemical Co. Ltd.s (Hengli) mega 1,500 kta(1) liquid ethylene plant in Dalian, Liaoning Province, China, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The plant successfully started up at the beginning of 2020 to reach its capacity shortly after the start-up, and despite COVID-19 context, passed all performance guarantees and the final acceptance test in the fourth quarter.

Known as the largest liquids ethylene cracker in China, the plant was completed and started up in 13 months since commencement of the construction, as part of a 20,000 kta refinery complex which broke ground in 2017.

In addition to the ethylene cracker technology, Technip Energies provided key proprietary technology components including a Heat Integrated Rectifier System, Ripple Trays and Wet Air Oxidation process. Technip Energies Ultra Selective Conversion (USC) U-coil and W-coil ethylene technology combines high energy efficiency and high yields, resulting in CO2 emissions reduction. It ranks in the 1st quartile of comparable crackers for lowest CO2 production per relative amount of high value chemical production.

As MRC reported earlier, Technip Energies has been recently awarded a significant Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) contract by Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) for its BR9 Expansion Project in Barauni, Bihar, in the Eastern part of India. This EPCC contract covers the installation of a new Once-through Hydrocracker Unit (OHCU) of 1 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) capacity, a Fuel Gas Treatment Unit (FGTU) and the associated facilities.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 576,270 tonnes in the first three month of 2021, up by 4% year on year. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 410,890 tonnes in January-March 2021, up by 56% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.

Hengli Group is an international company that owns a diversity of business: petrochemical, advanced polyester materials, textiles, trading, finance and thermal power. In 2019, Henglis total revenue was 556.7 billion RMB, ranking No. 181 in the Fortune Global 500 list. Hengli operates the largest PTA site in the world combined with the biggest performance fibre textile production base.
