KBR gets ethylene furnace contract from INEOS

HOUSTON, US: KBR will design and construct an ethylene furnace for INEOS Olefins & Polymers, US that upon commissioning will provide the highest achievable ethylene yields in the industry. The executed agreements with INEOS include provision of a technology license, engineering, procurement, supply of equipment and materials, and construction of the furnace. The furnace design will add 465 million pounds per year of furnace production capacity to the INEOS Chocolate Bayou Works Olefins Complex in Alvin, Texas.

This furnace will use KBR’s high-performance Selective Cracking and Optimum Recovery ethylene technology and process NGL feedstocks. The furnace will also include KBR’s latest generation Ultra Low NOx burner technology and a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) bed to reduce emissions of nitrous oxides. “The new agreements with INEOS build on the valuable partnership between KBR Downstream and Technology to provide fully integrated EPC solutions to our Olefins customers,” said Roy Oelking, President, Hydrocarbons, KBR.
