THE WOODLANDS, US: Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CB&I) has been selected by Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) for the license, engineering design and catalyst supply for a residue upgrading unit in Mathura, India.

The unit will use Chevron Lummus Global's (CLG) LC-MAX and isocracking technologies. The scope of work also includes the supply of catalysts, proprietary reactor internals, and training and technical services.

CLG is a joint venture between Chevron USA Inc and CB&I.

"This will be the first vacuum residue upgrading unit in India. The high-conversion rates offered will enable the IOCL refinery to eliminate fuel oil while producing high-quality diesel for the region," said Daniel McCarthy, CB&I's executive vice president of technology.

CLG's isocracking and LC-MAX technologies provide the most flexible upgrade path of vacuum residue to lighter, premium products at an industry-leading conversion rate of 90 percent. The flexibility and high-conversion rates achieved by the technologies enable customers to reach a balance between stringent product specifications, product yield and cycle run-length, all with the benefit of lower capital investment and operating costs.
