Technip awarded contract by Sasol for eight proprietary Ultra Selective Conversion furnaces

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip was awarded a contract by Sasol to provide engineering and procurement for eight proprietary Ultra Selective Conversion (USC) furnaces for a world-scale ethane cracker and derivatives complex to be located in Lake Charles, Louisiana, US. The award follows Sasol’s selection of Technip’s proprietary ethylene technology and FEED for the cracker, which will produce an estimated 1.5 million tonne per annum of ethylene. Technip’s operating centre in Houston, Texas, US, will execute the project.

“Following the selection of our ethylene technology during the early stage of this project, Technip is pleased to expand our role by supplying the most critical part of the cracker, the furnaces. In addition, Technip’s North America region also is playing a significant project role, having been selected, with Fluor, to provide engineering, procurement and construction management for the cracker and derivatives complex,” said Stan Knez, Senior Vice President, Technip.
