Honeywell has announced that Alexandria National Refining and Petrochemical Co. (ANRPC) will upgrade its existing naphtha complex using Honeywell UOP engineering services to increase the production of gasoline, which will help decrease the depend-ency on imported fuels in Egypt.

The upgrade, which creates high quality product and feed-stock for petrochemical production, will be applied to two UOP Naphtha Hydrotreating Units to pretreat the feedstocks to two CCR PlatformingTM Process Units and a PenexTM/DIH Process Units at ANRPC’s refinery in Alexandria, Egypt.

Honeywell UOP will revamp the naphtha complex to increase ANRPC’s naphtha processing, projected to be up to 125%.

“ANRPC has utilised Honeywell technology in their refinery since 2001, they know and trust our products and have selected Honeywell UOP because of its ability to understand our customers’ needs for these complex refinery upgrades,” said Laura Leonard, Vice President and General Manager, Honeywell UOP Process Technologies. “Our technologies will allow this refinery to revamp its naphtha complexes resulting in improved production at ANRPC.”

“ANRPC would like to express their profound happiness and gratitude for Honeywell UOP’s technology in our revamp and capacity upgrade project,” said ANRPC Chairman, Mr Salah Gaber. “We hope to collaborate with Honeywell UOP again in the future.”

ANRPC is considered one of the biggest refining companies in Egypt. Working under the umbrella of Egyptian general petroleum corporation (EGPC) it was founded with the latest international standards using the license of UOP (Honeywell).
