Indian Oil Corp. Ltd. (IOC) has let contracts to Larsen & Toubro Ltd. subsidiary L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering Ltd. (LTHE) to provide engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning on two units at IOC’s more than 300,000-b/d full-conversion refinery at Paradip in India’s state of Odisha on the country’s northeastern coast.
As part of the two contracts, LTHE will deliver EPCC for a 357,000-tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant as well as a 180,000-tpy ethylene recovery unit (ERU), the service provider said.
Saudi Basic Industries Corp. and Clariant International Ltd.’s jointly owned Scientific Design Co. of Little Ferry, NJ, will license process technology for the MEG unit, while Lummus Technology LLC—a McDermott International Inc. (formerly CB&I) group company—will provide its proprietary process technology for the ERU, LTHE said.
While it confirmed the EPCC contracts were awarded on a lump-sum turnkey basis and will be executed concurrently, LTHE disclosed neither the values nor timeframes for completion of the orders.
Both units come as part of IOC’s ongoing 37.52 billion-rupee ethylene glycol project at Paradip.
