KBR has been awarded a technology licensing contract by Hyundai Engineering and Técnicas Reunidas for PKN ORLEN’s petrochemical project.
The Petrochemical Development Programme in Plock, Poland, will see KBR provide technology license, basic engineering design, and proprietary equipment for PKN ORLEN’s Olefins Complex III Project.
This is Europe’s largest petrochemical scheme in 20 years. KBR will use its Selective Cracking Optimum Recovery (SCORE) ethylene technology as part of the project.
“KBR is privileged to be selected as the ethylene technology licensor for this ambitious project and contribute to PKN ORLEN’s growth and sustainability objectives,” said Doug Kelly, KBR president, technology.
“SCORE continues to lead the industry in delivering the highest yields and operational flexibility, while minimising the carbon footprint.”
KBR is heavily involved in olefins technology development and plant design for over 50 years.
The company has licenced more than 100 grassroot ethylene plants utilising its cost-effective and energy-efficient cracking technologies to produce ethylene, propylene and other valuable byproducts from a variety of feedstocks.
