McDermott awarded two polypropylene technology contracts in India

McDermott International, Inc. today announced that it has been awarded two sizeable* technology contracts by Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (IOCL) for the license and basic engineering design of a 200 KTA polypropylene plant in Barauni, India, as well as a 420 KTA polypropylene plant in Gujarat, India. Indian Oil Corporation is the leading refiner and a major petrochemical player in India. Both plants will use Lummus' proprietary NOVOLEN® process reactors and proprietary NHP® catalyst to produce a wide range of leading polypropylene products for the Indian and regional markets.

"Lummus' Novolen Technology offers the most competitive technology for the manufacturing of polypropylene, and continues to provide innovations in process and products," said Daniel M. McCarthy, Executive Vice President of McDermott's Lummus Technology business. "By licensing this technology to enhance the profitability of both the Barauni Refinery and the Gujarat Refinery, IOCL will be able to produce a variety of polypropylene products to meet India's increasing demand for plastics."

McDermott's Lummus Technology is a leading licensor of proprietary petrochemicals, refining, gasification and gas processing technologies, and a supplier of proprietary catalysts and related engineering.

These awards were reflected in McDermott's third quarter 2018 backlog.
