production of key petrochemicals to meet growing demand

DES PLAINES, Ill., March 26, 2013

DES PLAINES, Ill., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE:
HON) company, announced today that its UOP C[3] Oleflex™ process technology
has been selected by Williams to produce propylene, a valuable petrochemical
used in plastics production.

The selection is the sixth win for Honeywell's UOP Oleflex process technology
in North America, as petrochemical producers move to produce propylene from
propane found in natural gas.

"Demand for propylene has continued to grow globally, but supply has not kept
pace because of production shifts within the petrochemical industry," said
Pete Piotrowski, senior vice president and general manager of Honeywell's UOP
Process Technology and Equipment business unit. "The UOP Oleflex process has
lower greenhouse gas emissions, low water usage and a highly efficient,
platinum-based catalyst system. UOP's technology continues to be the superior
choice for customers seeking to boost propylene production." 

Williams' propane dehydrogenation (PDH) facility, to be located in Alberta,
Canada, will convert propane recovered from oil sands off gas into
polymer-grade propylene. The PDH facility will be the first in Canada and will
have an annual capacity of approximately 1 billion pounds.

Williams is one of the leading energy infrastructure companies in North
America. Headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., Williams specializes in gathering,
processing and transporting natural gas, producing natural gas liquids and
olefins for petrochemical feedstocks, and processing oil sands off gas.
Operations are primarily located in the Pacific Northwest, Rocky Mountains,
Gulf Coast and Eastern Seaboard regions, as well as in Canada.

Compared with competing processes, Honeywell's UOP C[3] Oleflex technology
provides the lowest cash cost of production, the highest return on investment
and the smallest environmental footprint. This superior performance is
characterized by low capital cost, high propylene yields, low energy and water
consumption, and use of a fully recyclable platinum alumina-based catalyst
system.

Since the Oleflex technology was commercialized in 1990, Honeywell's UOP has
commissioned nine C[3] Oleflex units for on-purpose propylene production and
six C[4] Oleflex units, four of which are in North America, for on-purpose
isobutylene production.

Since the beginning of 2011, Honeywell's UOP has announced 10 new C[3] Oleflex
process units and three new C[4] Oleflex process units across China, Abu Dhabi
and North America. It also announced China's first combined C[3]/C[4] Oleflex
unit, which is expected to start up in 2014.

international supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts,
adsorbents, process plants, and consulting services to the petroleum refining,
