Lukoil to use UOP technology for gasoline and petrochemical production

DES PLAINES, US: UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, has been selected by Russia’s Lukoil to provide technology to produce blending components used to make high-octane gasoline and petrochemicals at its facility in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. Lukoil will license an integrated suite of Honeywell’s UOP technologies to produce high-quality gasoline blending components – propylene.

The suite of Honeywell’s UOP technology will be used in a new integrated fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) complex. The new units, expected to start up in 2015, will produce more than 1 million metric tonne of gasoline blending components and more than 170,000 metric tonne of propylene per year. In addition to technology licensing, Honeywell’s UOP and a number of its affiliates will provide engineering design, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical service for the project.

“Refining and petrochemical integration offers many benefits - feedstock and energy maximization, reduced investment and operating costs and higher product yields. With legislation in the Russian Federation calling for improved gasoline quality, as well as the region’s rising petrochemicals demand, UOP is pleased to offer technology solutions that work together to meet those needs,” said Pete Piotrowski, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Honeywell’s UOP Process Technology & Equipment business unit.

Russia is the third largest energy consumer in the world, and demand is growing due to increasing economic activity, according to the Asia-Pacific Economic Corporation (APEC). Particularly, gasoline demand is increasing due to the rise in passenger vehicle utilization.
