CB&I awarded contract for new alkylation process unit

Published by
Hydrocarbon Engineering,

CB&I has been awarded a contract by a major North American refiner for the technology license and engineering design of a new alkylation process unit to be located on the US Gulf Coast. The unit will use CB&I's advanced CDAlky® sulfuric acid alkylation technology to produce 23 000 bpd of alkylate based on 100% C5 olefin feedstock and marks CB&I's first US license for the technology.

CDAlky is an environmentally friendly alternative process to obtain high-octane, premium gasoline with less environmental impact, while also reducing overall maintenance and chemical cost for refineries.

"CB&I is pleased to have been selected by our customer to provide the license and engineering design for this project," said Daniel McCarthy, President of CB&I's Technology operating group. "Our CDAlky technology has been commercially proven in international markets since 2013, and this milestone award highlights the level of trust our customer has placed in CB&I as well as the competitive advantages of our technology."
