UOP LLC Key Developments

PetroChina Guangxi Petrochemical Company Uses UOP LLC Process Technology to Purify Hydrogen at New Refining Complex in Qinzhou, Guangxi Province, China

UOP LLC announced that PetroChina Guangxi Petrochemical Company (GXPC) is using UOP process technology to purify hydrogen at a new refining complex in Qinzhou, Guangxi Province, China. With support from UOP’s local service team, GXPC successfully commissioned a UOP Polybed™ PSA (Pressure Swing Adsorption) System to purify hydrogen, which is a critical ingredient used in modern refining processes to produce clean transportation fuels, including diesel, gasoline and jet fuel. Refineries use hydrogen to convert heavy oils to lighter, higher-value products such as transportation fuels. Hydrogen is also used to remove contaminants and improve the quality of end products. The PSA unit at GXPC processes feed from a steam reformer to produce more than 140,000 Nm 3 /h (normal cubic meters per hour) of hydrogen. In addition to PSA technology, GXPC is also using several other UOP technologies to produce high-quality fuels, including: CCR Platforming™ technology, two-Stage Unicracking™ technology, Unionfining™ technology, hydrotreating technology, Penex™ technology, and fluid catalytic cracking technology. In addition to recovering and purifying hydrogen from steam reformers and refinery off-gases, Polybed PSA Systems can be used to produce hydrogen from other sources, including ethylene off-gas, methanol off-gas and partial oxidation/syngas.

CEPSA Chemical (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. Selects UOP Process Technology of UOP LLC to Meet Demand in China for Key Petrochemicals

UOP LLC announced that CEPSA Chemical (Shanghai) Co. Ltd., will use UOP process technology to meet demand in China for key petrochemicals used to make plastics for the fast-growing domestic construction and automotive industries. CEPSA Chemical (Shanghai) will use UOP's Phenol process to produce high quality phenol and by-product acetone, key building blocks for polycarbonate plastics used in construction and automobile production. The new facility will be built at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park. In addition to technology licensing, UOP will provide process design and start-up services for the Shanghai complex, which is expected to begin production in November 2014. The new phenol plant will be integrated with CEPSA Chemical's cumene plant, which is being built at the same site.

PennTex North Louisiana, LLC Selects UOP LLC to Engineer, Procure and Construct

UOP LLC announced that PennTex North Louisiana, LLC has selected UOP to engineer, procure and construct (EPC) a gas processing plant to recover valuable natural gas liquids (NGLs) in northern Louisiana. The new plant will be capable of processing 200 MMSCFD of natural gas and will be in production in the fourth quarter of 2015. The EPC contract is the second that PennTex North Louisiana has awarded UOP for its North Louisiana operations. UOP's pre-engineered modular gas processing plant will enable quick construction and installation, allowing PennTex North Louisiana to start up on schedule, while providing superior quality control. PennTex has also entered into a letter of intent with UOP to purchase a third 200 MMSCFD cryogenic plant, scheduled for delivery in November 2015, which will be used in one of Penntex's midstream platforms. UOP's pre-engineered modular equipment can easily be shipped to remote locations. Modules fit together easily and efficiently, significantly reducing construction time and expense, and enhancing reliability after start-up. This enables customers to more quickly begin processing gas and earning revenue. The modular approach also allows for swift field assembly and, when coupled with the UOP standardized installation plan, results in a fast and cost-effective solution. For repeat customers, the standardized modular approach helps drive greater ease of operation for the customer due to common parts, skid and installation layouts, and spares that simplify training, operations and maintenance. For both PennTex North Louisiana projects, UOP will supply and install the modular cryogenic, dehydration, acid gas removal, inlet/residue compression, control system, flare system and site electrical equipment. It will also supply site utility systems and buildings for office, control room, motor control center, and compressor requirements. Modular equipment is one of the key technologies offered by UOP's Gas Processing and Hydrogen business to treat and process natural gas. UOP also offers gas technologies to purify hydrogen used in refineries, and to extract water, mercury, sulfur, carbon dioxide and other contaminants from raw natural gas streams. The business has supplied technology to more than 3,600 individual process units for gas processing in a broad range of applications throughout the world. UOP also supplies modular equipment to the global refining and petrochemical industries.
