HOUSTON, US: McDermott International Inc has been awarded a sizeable technology contract by Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL). Award includes technology license, basic engineering, proprietary equipment, training and technical services for a grassroots Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) unit.

The unit will use INDMAX Technology for FCC, licensed by McDermott's Lummus Technology and developed in partnership with IOCL.

This FCC unit is part of a refinery expansion project for IOCL to grow into petrochemicals at the complex in Panipat, Haryana, India. Lummus Technology is the exclusive worldwide licensor of INDMAX Technology, which is a unique solution for vertical integration of refinery and petrochemical complexes and offers better product yields with lower capital and operating expenditures.
