UOP licenses technology to petrochemicals complex in Brunei

DES PLAINES, US: UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, announced that its technology has been selected to produce key petrochemicals in a new complex in Brunei. Brunei Hengyi Industries Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of China’s Zhejiang Hengyi Group Co, will use several of Honeywell’s UOP technologies to produce aromatics, which are key materials used in the production of polymers, plastics, resins and synthetic fibres such as polyester and nylon.

The project will combine a 2.2 million metric tonne per annum hydrocracking unit, utilizing Honeywell’s UOP Unicracking process and catalysts; a 3.3 million metric tonne per annum UOP CCR Platforming unit; and a 1.5 million metric tonne per annum UOP Parex unit. Additionally, the complex will license Honeywell’s UOP Isomar process, UOP Tatoray process and UOP ED Sulfolane process at its optimized, fully integrated aromatics complex. In addition to technology licensing, Honeywell’s UOP will provide engineering, training and technical services, catalysts, adsorbents, and specialty equipment for the project. Aromatics production is expected to start-up in 2015.

“As the demand for aromatics grows in the region, producers are looking for ways to maximize product yields, while reducing production costs and minimizing investment costs. UOP’s integrated aromatics technology will provide the lowest energy consumption, cost of production and overall investment cost,” said Pete Piotrowski, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Process Technology and Equipment business unit, Honeywell’s UOP.
