THE WOODLANDS, US: Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CBI) has been awarded a technology contract by Shurtan Gas Chemical Complex LLC (SGCC) for a grassroots ethylene complex to be built in southern Uzbekistan.

The scope of work includes the license and basic engineering of an ethylene unit, which will use four proprietary (short residence time) SRT heaters, a Hexene-1 unit and a polypropylene unit. The Hexene-1 unit will use CB&I's Comonomer Production Technology for the production of Hexene-1 from low-cost C4s, and the polypropylene unit will use CB&I's Novolen gas-phase polypropylene technology for the production of full range polypropylene products.

"CB&I looks forward to providing multiple technologies to SGCC's complex. This is the second ethylene unit supplied to the complex, which reinforces our presence in Central Asia and illustrates how our breadth of technologies can be packaged to deliver a complete solution to our customers through a single point of contact," said Daniel McCarthy, CB&I's executive vice president of technology.
