UOP LLC Key Developments

Grupa Azoty to Use C3 Oleflex Process Technology of UOP LLC

UOP LLC announced that its C3 Oleflex process technology will be used by Grupa Azoty to produce propylene. By 2020, 20% of the world's propylene production is expected to come from on-purpose propylene production technologies such as Honeywell UOP's Oleflex technology. Since the Oleflex process was developed, Honeywell UOP has continually improved the technology and the catalyst it uses. Compared with competing dehydrogenation processes, Oleflex technology provides the lowest cash cost of production, the return on investment and the smallest environmental footprint. This superior performance is characterized by low capital cost, high propylene yields, low energy consumption, and use of a fully recyclable platinum alumina-based catalyst system. In addition to the C3 Oleflex process to convert propane to propylene, Honeywell UOP also licenses its C4 Oleflex technology, a butane dehydrogenation process to convert isobutane to isobutylene. In addition to technology licensing, Honeywell UOP and local affiliates will provide engineering design, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, staff training and technical service for the project. The Police facility also uses technologies from Honeywell Process Solutions at several of its operating units, including Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), Safety Manager, Profit Controllers and TotalPlant Solutions. These software technologies help plant personnel manage operations, maximize efficiency and increase uptime.

Dangote Selects UOP Technology for its Lekki Refinery

Dangote selected the UOP technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of Honeywell. UOP will supply process technology, catalysts and proprietary equipment for the 500,000 barrels per day capacity plant that will cost around $9 billion. The refinery, which is expected to enter into operation in by 2018 will more than double the countries current refining capacity. The nation's four refineries with a combined capacity of 450,000 barrels is currently achieving anything between 10 and 20% of its capacity forcing the country to import petroleum products to service the country's needs. In addition to processing crude oil to produce high-quality gasoline, diesel and jet fuel that meet Euro V specifications for reduced emissions, the Dangote refinery facility will produce world-scale quantities of polypropylene, a key petrochemical used in plastics and packaging. Other key UOP technologies that will be used at the plant include: The UOP Resid Fluid Catalytic Cracking process to produce transportation fuels from crude oil. It will also supply propylene, which will be used as a feedstock for polypropylene. The CCR Platforming process to produce high-octane gasoline blending components. The Unicracking process to produce diesel. The Penex process to produce high-octane gasoline. The crude distillation unit (CDU) design will be provided by UOP's alliance partner, Process Consulting Services.

Dangote Oil Refining Company Selects UOP LLC Technology

UOP LLC announced that its process technology, catalysts and proprietary equipment will form the basis for the large refinery in Africa, reducing Nigeria's dependence on imported fuels and petrochemicals. Dangote Oil Refining Company selected UOP technology for a world-scale integrated refinery and petrochemical plant to be built in Lekki, near the capital of Lagos in southwestern Nigeria.
