CB&I announces record production rates at propane dehydrogenation plant

CB&I and SK Advanced Co. Ltd are celebrating the record production rates and outstanding operation of a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in Seoul, South Korea. The plant uses CB&I’s CATOFIN® technology and Clariant’s most advanced dehydrogenation catalyst for the nameplate production of 600,000 metric tons per year of propylene. CB&I announced the license and basic engineering contract for this plant in March, 2013.

“We congratulate SKA on achieving more than 110 percent of the nameplate production in the first year of operation,” said Brian Muldoon, CB&I’s Senior Vice President of Petrochemicals. “Our proven CATOFIN propane dehydrogenation technology offers the customer both highest reliability and highest yield of any commercially available dehydrogenation technologies.” SKA routinely produces over 110 percent nameplate capacity while maintaining more than a 98% on stream factor.

On March 8, 2017, a small ceremony was held at the SKA headquarters to commemorate the first anniversary of the successful operation of the PDH project. In its first year, the plant has experienced record production rates as well as record on-stream time.
