KBR Inc. has announced that it has entered into a contract with Wynnewood Refining Co. LLC (Wynnewood) for engineering and design services relating to KBR's Solid Acid Alkylation Technology (K-SAAT) for Wynnewood's refinery located in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, US.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide basic engineering and design (BED) services for its K-SAAT technology and the opportunity to utilise the technology to revamp the existing hydrofluoric acid (HF) alkylation unit at the Wynnewood Refinery.

K-SAAT produces alkylate, which is an ultra-clean gasoline blendstock. It does this by combining light olefins and isobutane using a solid catalyst, avoiding complex acid handling and cooling cost.
