DES PLAINES, US: Pakistan Refinery Limited (PRL) will use process technology and modular equipment from Honeywell’s UOP to help PRL meet growing domestic demand for gasoline. The technology will help PRL convert naphtha, which it currently exports, to high-octane gasoline. PRL will use Honeywell’s UOP Penex process technology to produce isomerate, a high-value gasoline blending component. The use of isomerate will also help PRL’s efforts to produce environmentally-friendlier fuels that enable reduced passenger car emissions.

Refinery process units are usually built in the field by third-party engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies. UOP modular units are built at an offsite fabrication shop where adverse weather and wind conditions do not cause delays. The modular units are fully inspected prior to delivery to the customer to help ensure quality and compliance to specifications. Reduced onsite installation time can potentially result in earlier start up, further optimizing customer project economics. UOP offers modularized equipment for refining, petrochemical and gas processing units. The offering provides single-point responsibility for dependable project execution in a variety of applications.

“Our ability to deliver a total, modularized solution for PRL’s Penex unit provides reliable project execution from a quality, delivery and cost perspective. With our modular equipment offering, we provide detailed engineering design, procurement, and shop pre-fabrication of the process unit to provide the highest-quality end product,” said Pete Piotrowski, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Process Technology and Equipment, UOP.
