The Shaw Group Inc. has been awarded contracts to provide a process design package and technology license to expand IRPC’s refinery in Rayong, Thailand.
The refinery’s daily capacity is 215,000 barrels. Shaw’s work will allow IPRC to add a 30,000-barrels-per-day catalytic cracking unit. The upgrade increases the production of polymer-grade propylene and recovery of polymer-grade ethylene to be used as feedstock for petrochemical derivative units at the same site.
The value of the contract was not disclosed.
