McDermott International has announced that it has been awarded a technology contract by IndianOil for the technology licence, basic engineering, proprietary equipment, training and technical services for a grassroots fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit using INDMAX Technology, licensed by McDermott’s Lummus Technology and developed in partnership with IndianOil.

This FCC unit is part of a refinery expansion project for IndianOil to grow into petrochemicals at the complex in Panipat, Haryana, India. Lummus Technology is the exclusive worldwide licensor of INDMAX Technology, which is a unique solution for vertical integration of refinery and petrochemical complexes and offers better product yields with lower capital and operating expenditures.

This technology combines the proprietary and innovative INDMAX catalyst and process concepts developed by the premier R&D centre of IndianOil with state-of-the-art FCC technology and hardware design features of Lummus Technology. “IndianOil has been an important partner to us for many years and we look forward to the continued relationship by participating in this refinery expansion project,” said Leon de Bruyn, Senior Vice President of McDermott’s Lummus Technology business. “IndianOil currently operates INDMAX units at their Paradip and Guwahati refineries, and they are in the process of commissioning another at their Bongaigaon refinery.”
