CVR Refining LP subsidiary Wynnewood Refining Co. LLC has let a contract to KBR Inc. to provide engineering and design services related to the service provider’s proprietary Solid Acid Alkylation Technology (K-SAAT) for the operator’s 74,500-b/d refinery in Wynnewood, Okla.
As part of the contract, KBR said it will deliver basic engineering and design services for its K-SAAT technology, which could lead to an opportunity to implement the technology as part of a revamp of the refinery’s existing hydrofluoric acid (HF) alkylation unit.
The service provider disclosed neither a value of the contract nor a timetable for its scope of work under the order.
A timeframe for when Wynnewood Refining would proceed with implementation of the HF alkylation unit’s conversion to a different technology was not revealed.
