Technip has been awarded by Tecnicas Reunidas a significant contract to supply three hydrogen reformers as part of the hydrogen production facility at PETRONAS' Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project located in the state of Johor, Malaysia.
As the heart of the hydrogen plant, the reformers will produce 344,500 Nm3/h of hydrogen and syngas products. It will supply high quality export steam to the refinery steam network. The supply of the reformers is based on Technip's proprietary top-fired steam methane reforming technology. The reformers are expected to come on-stream in 2018.
RAPID is PETRONAS' largest green-field downstream undertaking in Malaysia, and along with its six major associated facilities, forms the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC). The associated facilities are the Pengerang Co-generation Plant, LNG Re-gasification Terminal, Air Separation Unit, Raw Water Supply project, the Liquid Bulk Terminal and the Central and Shared Utilities and Facilities.
