Technip to license gas cracking ethylene plant technology in China

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip SA said that it has entered into a contract to supply its proprietary ethylene technology, process design package, technical services and proprietary equipment to SP Olefins (Taixing) Co Ltd, a subsidiary of SP Chemicals, for a 650 KTA grassroots gas cracker. Located in Taixing, Jiangsu Province, China, the plant will use low cost ethane and propane from North America. It will be part of SP Olefins 1100 KTA light hydrocarbon utilization project.

The technology components include: Technip’s USC furnaces and heat-integrated rectifier system, Technip’s ripple trays and wet air oxidation process.

The project will be executed by Technip’s operating centre in Houston, Texas, US.

“Technip’s proven ethane cracking technology and track record of recent gas cracker awards provide a solid foundation for this plant, which will be the first gas cracking ethylene plant in China,” said Stan Knez, president, Technip Stone & Webster process technology.
