Technip was awarded by Open Joint Stock Company (OJSC) Kazanorgsintez(1) a contract to provide technology and services for a grassroots furnace at Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia. The project consists of the engineering and procurement of an SMK™ double-cell cracking furnace. This is preferred for cracking high-capacity, low-cost ethane and propane gas feedstock.
In the framework of the cracking furnaces replacement program of Kazanorgsintez, the project follows the successful start-up and operation of a Technip SMK™ doublecell cracking furnace supplied in 2007. The furnaces are part of the ethylene plant at the site, with the output used as feedstock for other downstream units.
Technip’s operating center in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands, will execute the project, which is scheduled for mechanical completion in 2015.
