Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) has been awarded a technology contract by Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL) for their refinery expansion project in Numaligah, Golaghat, Assam, India. CLG's scope includes the licence, process design package, proprietary equipment, catalyst supply, training and technical services.

Projected to start up in 2025, the plant will employ CLG's LC-FINING technology with an integrated VGO hydrotreater to upgrade vacuum residue and clarified oil from existing and new units. Combining the two technologies gives NRL the ability to produce feedstock for petrochemicals with a low investment. The process involves upgrading residue to make feed for high propylene FCC with ease, safety and reliability. This is the second major license awarded by NRL to CLG.

This is the third licensed unit in India employing CLG's LC-FINING platform. CLG's LC-FINING ebullating bed residue hydrocracking technology provides high conversion of residues selectively to liquid products and high removal of metals, sulfur and CCR from difficult feedstocks.
