CB&I bags Pertamina's refinery upgrade contract in Indonesia

THE WOODLANDS, US: Chicago Bridge & Iron Company NV (CB&I) said that it has been awarded the license and engineering design of a grassroots alkylation unit by PT Pertamina (Persero). The unit will use CB&I's CDAlky advanced sulfuric acid alkylation technology and Haldor Topsoe's WSA (wet gas sulfuric acid) technology as part of the upgrade of Pertamina's refinery unit V in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, Indonesia.

CDAlky is an environmentally-friendly alternative process to obtain high-octane, premium gasoline. Because the improved process eliminates the need for human contact with sulfuric acid, it reduces overall maintenance, chemical cost and environmental impact for refineries.

"CB&I is pleased to have been selected as the alkylation technology licensor for the project. We have previously licensed technologies to Pertamina, and we look forward to our continued partnership with them," said Daniel McCarthy, president of CB&I's technology operating group.
