First Novolen PP unit to be build in Nigeria

April 30/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Lummus Technology's Novolen business has been awarded a polypropylene (PP) contract by BUA Refinery, a subsidiary of Nigeria's BUA Group, at their grassroots refinery in Nigeria, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Lummus' scope includes the technology license for a 285 KTA PP unit as well as basic design engineering, training and services, and catalyst supply.

"We are pleased to sign this polypropylene contract for our BUA Refinery and Petrochemicals Project with Lummus Technology, a world leader in delivering polypropylene solutions, which will solve the increasing demand for high-performance grade polypropylene in Nigeria, the Gulf of Guinea as well as the Sub-Saharan Africa Region," said Abdul Samad Rabiu, Chairman of BUA Group. "We are confident in the capacity and technical expertise of Lummus Technology to deliver a best-in-class, 285 KTA PP unit for our refinery project scheduled to come on stream in 2024."

Lummus Novolen Technology GmbH licenses PP technology and provides related engineering and technical support/advisory services. Novolen also supplies NHP catalysts for the production of high-performance polypropylene grades in the Novolen process and NOVOCENE metallocene catalyst for the production of special PP grades.

As MRC reported before, Lummus Technology has been just awarded a master licensor contract by PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim for its ethylbenzene, styrene monomer (SM), ethylene dimerization and olefins conversion technologies. These four plants will be part of the expansion of an olefins production facility in Nizhnekamsk, Russia. The dimerization and olefins conversion units will be the first in Russia.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market was 246,870 tonnes in January-February 2021, up by 30% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.
