In December 2015 the Joint Venture of CTCI Taiwan & CB&I Nederland B.V. was awarded by Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company – Orpic a contract for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for a Steam Cracker with Off-Sites & Utilities for the Liwa Plastics Industries Complex in Suhar, Sultanate of Oman. The project scope of work includes EPC for a grassroots 880-ktpa ethylene plant, pygas unit and MTBE unit, as well as all the related off-sites and utilities.
The 360°KAS order scope comprises 7 Analyser Shelters with redundant HVAC’ s and 12 pieces of CEMS analysers, the ABB-ACF5000. We believe that our experience and long track record in the design and supply of large analyser packages to major operators in the industry were important elements in positioning ourselves to win this work.
The integrated system is expected to be finalized in Q2 2018. We are looking forward to a prosperous cooperation and successful project delivery.
