Gasification contract in India

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

WorleyParsons has been awarded a contract to supply sulfur technology to the Jamnagar refinery gasification project in Jamnagar, India. RIL is part of Reliance Group and specialises in the energy and petrochemicals industries. A technology license for WorleyParsons’ process design package and detailed engineering support will be supplied to Linde Engineering India, the prime project contractor. Engineering services will also be provided by WorleyParsons' Monrovia, California, USA supported by local Indian offices. Detailed engineering will be completed by Linde’s office in Vadodara, India.

Contract details
The contract includes four sulfur recovery units (SRU) which will have individual tail gas treating units (TGTU) to produce elemental sulfur from hydrogen sulfide resulting from the purification of syngas produced in the gasification process. Each train will have a capacity near 1000 tpd and will have the flexibility to process a wide range of acid gas feed streams depending on the feedstock the units.

The 2-stage Clause, Linde SURE oxygen enrichment, BSR® tail gas treating and EMRE degassing technologies will all be used for the project and licensed by WorleyParsons. A dedicated tail gas amine solvent will not be used in the TGTU, instead SRU tail gas will be recycled to the upstream Linde Rectisol® gas purification unit for 99.9+% overall sulfur recovery efficiency. This will result in the lowest net present cost for the facility.
