HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc (KBR) has entered into an engineering agreement for the residue hydroprocessing unit at the Jordan Petroleum Refinery (JPRC) expansion project.

KBR will provide the basic design package for the unit using its proprietary Veba Combi Cracking (VCC) slurry phase hydrocracking technology. This unique technology is capable of processing a wide range of feedstocks and enables production of fuels that meet environmental specifications without further upgrading.

The VCC technology will be implemented at JPRC's refinery in Jordan and will be the core of the refinery's expansion plans to increase production to 120,000 barrels per day.

"JPRC selected VCC technology among several alternative processes for the conversion of the bottom of the barrel in its forthcoming expansion project, JPRC was looking for a feasible process that yields clean products with minimum negative environmental impact," said Abdel Karim Alawin, CEO of JPRC.

"KBR is committed to the success of JPRC's 4th Refinery Expansion. We are excited to implement our unique VCC Technology and contribute to the success of this important and prestigious project," said John Derbyshire, president, KBR technology and consulting. "

"With its recent implementation in Russia and China, VCC technology has emerged as the most successful slurry phase hydrocracking technology to reliably produce high-quality finished products from heavy feeds," Derbyshire added.
