HOUSTON, US: McDermott International Inc has been awarded a sizeable contract by PetroLogistics ll LLC to perform the front-end engineering design (FEED) services for a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) facility planned for the US Gulf Coast.

Under the scope of the contract, McDermott will assist in the development of a PDH plant to be constructed on the US Gulf Coast. The plant has a design basis of 500 KTA.

"McDermott is pleased to be working with PetroLogistics II in the development of a facility that will support the growth of propylene in the US. We will pull from our vast expertise in engineering to complete the FEED," said Mark Coscio, McDermott's Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America.

"The shale revolution has resulted in a significant decline in co-product propylene production from the sources that historically supplied the majority of US propylene: petroleum refineries and heavy feed ethylene crackers. As a result, future growth in propylene demand will need to be supplied largely via on-purpose propane dehydrogenation. We are excited to work with McDermott to develop a facility that can supply a solution to this need," added Nathan Ticatch, PetroLogistics II President.
