Shaw awarded contract to revamp RFCC unit in Thailand

BATON ROUGE, US: The Shaw Group announced it has been awarded a contract to provide the technology license and process design package for the revamp of a residue fluid catalytic cracking (RFCC) unit for Star Petroleum Refining Co in Thailand. The design will upgrade the 40,800 barrels per day RFCC unit by incorporating the latest advances in reactor system technology.

Shaw jointly developed the proprietary RFCCU technology through an alliance with Axens and Total that began in the early 1990s. So far, Shaw and Axens have licensed 51 grassroots units and performed more than 200 revamp projects. “Shaw was the original licensor of this RFCC unit, which first started-up in 1996. We are now upgrading the unit to incorporate the latest technology features and improve performance and profitability,” said James Glass, President, Energy & Chemicals, Shaw.
