PT Chandra Asri Perkasa selects ethylene furnace from McDermott

McDermott International, Inc. today announced that it has been awarded a sizeable* technology contract by PT Chandra Asri Perkasa for the detailed engineering of 8 proprietary SRT® (Short Residence Time) ethylene cracking heaters at the Chandra Asri Perkasa (CAP2) ethylene plant in Cilegon, Indonesia. The unit will utilize Lummus Technology's SRT® (Short Residence Time) pyrolysis heater technology to produce 1,100 KTA of ethylene and 600 KTA of propylene. This award follows the company's announcement in April 2018 of a contract for the license and basic engineering of the ethylene plant at this facility. 

"Lummus Technology's SRT heaters allow for higher yields and plant reliability while reducing emissions and operating costs," said Daniel M. McCarthy, Executive Vice President of McDermott's Lummus Technology business. "Once complete, this complex will be one of the largest in Indonesia, helping to satisfy the country's growing demand for petrochemical products."

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. With a heritage spanning more than 100 years, encompassing approximately 3,100 patents and patent applications, Lummus Technology provides one of the industry's most diversified technology portfolios to the hydrocarbon processing sector.
