Contract let for Cilacap refinery upgrade

By OGJ editors

PT Pertamina has let a contract to Foster Wheeler AG’s Global Engineering & Construction Group for management of an upgrade of its 348,000 b/d Cilacap refinery on Java, Indonesia.

The project includes construction of a 62,000 b/d resid catalytic cracking complex, to include a resid fluid catalytic cracker, an LPG Merox unit, and propylene recovery and gasoline hydrotreating units.

The Foster Wheeler unit will manage the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor.

The upgrade will enable the refinery to meet Euro 4 fuel quality specifications. It will boost production of LPG by 350,000 tonnes/year and enable the refinery to produce more than 140,000 tpy of propylene.

Completion is due in 2014.

Pertamina earlier planned to perform the upgrade in a joint venture with Mitsui & Co. Ltd., but the companies ended the agreement citing disagreement over the business model (OGJ Online, Mar. 23, 2010).
