KBR bags fluid catalytic cracker revamp contract in China

5:25 AM, 2nd April 2016

HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc has been awarded a license and basic engineering design contract for the revamp of a fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) unit with Maxofin technology, located in Shandong province in China. The project was awarded by a confidential client.

KBR will provide the licensing package for the Maxofin conversion. Maxofin technology, developed by KBR, enables upgrade of existing FCC units to produce higher amounts of propylene, an important petrochemical feedstock, while still retaining the flexibility to produce more gasoline when market demand or prices are favourable.

“This project demonstrates our commitment to deliver innovative technologies that help the client meet their performance objectives,” said John Derbyshire, president, technology & consulting, KBR.

“Maxofin technology is a flexible option to help clients increase their propylene production without major grassroots capital investment,” said Derbyshire.
