Russian ethylene plant due cracking furnaces

PJSC Kazanorgsintez has let a contract to a division of Technip SA for delivery of three furnaces to the operator’s ethylene plant in Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia.

Technip Benelux BV, Zoetermeer, the Netherlands, will provide engineering and procurement for three gas-cracking furnaces equipped with Technip’s proprietary SMK coil technology, the service provider said.

The project comes as part of Kazanorgsintez’s ongoing cracking-furnaces replacement program and follows Technip’s previous deliveries of SMK double-cell cracking furnaces to the Kazan plant in 2007 and 2015 (OGJ Online, Feb. 17, 2014).

While it did not disclose a precise amount of the contract, Technip did confirm the value at less than €50 million.

The furnaces are due for mechanical completion in 2018, Technip said.
