Seamless startup at PetroChina Tarim supported by Shell Catalysts & Technologies
The Tarim Ethane to Ethylene Project operated by PetroChina achieved a fast and successful startup at the end of August using Shell Catalysts & Technologies (SC&T) C2 FE selective hydrogenation catalyst. Located in Korla, China, the facility is PetroChinaâ€™s first 600 KTA ethane feed grassroots ethylene plant.
SC&T C2 FE selective hydrogenation catalyst was selected by PetroChina for the core catalyst unit. The catalyst has proven to provide reliable operation at multiple feed sources and various operating conditions. These features ensure ethylene producers can gain higher yield from excellent ethylene selectivity and also stability features which provide extra confidence in day-to-day operations.
â€śThe SC&T technical service engineers and the startup team demonstrated strong operational excellence and flawless execution, which enabled a fast plant startup within 11 hours from furnace feed until getting on specification ethylene product,â€ť said Shaolin Li, ethylene plant manager of PetroChina Tarim.
â€śWe are delighted to extend the long-term collaboration with PetroChina. And the â€śRight First Timeâ€ť startup without flaring at PetroChina Tarim is a significant achievement,â€ť said Agnes Lim, Specialty Catalyst marketing manager, SC&T. â€śWe are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to PetroChinaâ€™s decarbonization journey. At SC&T, we are always looking to help our customers decarbonize and achieving startup without flaring helps contribute to these efforts.â€ť
