McDermott International, Ltd has announced it has been awarded an engineering and procurement contract for a spent caustic treatment solution on the Gas Chemical Complex (GCC) project from Heat Transfer Technologies DMCC (HTT).
The GCC project is owned by Baltic Chemical Plant LLC, a subsidiary of RusGazDobycha. It is the largest polyethylene integration project in the world and is located near Russia’s shores in the Gulf of Finland.
“This award is a testament to our ability to leverage our suite of capabilities to provide integrated solutions throughout the lifecycle of a project,” says Tareq Kawash, Senior Vice President, Europe, Middle East, Africa. “Our proven experience delivering world-class polyethylene projects make us the ideal partner to continue supporting the GCC project.”
McDermott’s scope includes license technology rights, basic design engineering package (BDEP), module detailed engineering design and full procurement of main equipment. The modularised solution for the spent caustic treatment solution will be an integral part of the GCC project and enable the project’s annual production of up to 3 million tons of polyethylene.
This award follows McDermott’s successful completion of front end engineering design (FEED) and ongoing early works on the GCC project.
HTT was selected by the China National Chemical Engineering and Construction Corporation Seven, Ltd. (CC7) to acquire equipment for this project. McDermott is also collaborating with CC7 on the Afipsky Hydrocracker project and on the Lukoil Delayed Coker Unit project.
The GCC project will be executed from McDermott’s offices in The Hague, the Netherlands and Brno, Czech Republic.
