Technip manages all aspects of oil refining projects, from conceptual design to turnkey delivery. Our vast and successful experience in the design and construction of refining units also includes:
Being a leader in engineering and construction in refining,Technip has unlimited access to all best-in-class technologies thanks to strong long-lasting relationships with all reputed licensors. We have a strong know-how in licensors selection activities and proven capabilities in integrating and developing multi-licensor packages, optimized design for utilities, off-sites and interconnectings.
Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC)/Resid Fluid Catalytic Cracking
Technip’s FCC process, developed jointly with Axens, IFP and Total, offers refiners superior operating performance, increased profitability and on-stream reliability over a wide range of feedstock and product flexibility. To date, we have licensed 55 grassroots units and performed more than 220 revamp projects.
The following technologies were developed and commercialized by SINOPEC Research Institute of Petroleum Processing (RIPP) in the People’s Republic of China. Technip sells the technologies outside of China for the Institute.
Refinery Offgas Recovery
By using proprietary technology, Technipis able to recover valuable products from refinery offgases. Our advanced contaminant removal technology applications ensure product quality for downstream petrochemical processes, acting as a bridge between refining and petrochemicals.
Propylene Recovery Units
Based on extensive C3 splitter experience with proven vapor/liquid equilibrium and demonstrated contaminant removal knowledge, Technip designs propylene recovery units that produce on-spec polymer-grade propylene and reduce energy consumption and capital investment costs.
BenzOUT™ Gasoline Benzene Reduction Technology
BenzOUT™ is a reformate alkylation process that converts benzene into high octane alkylaromatic blending components by reacting benzene-rich streams with light olefins such as refinery grade propylene. Developed by ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company and licensed through Badger Licensing LLC, this patented technology avoids the octane loss and hydrogen consumption associated with alternative options of benzene saturation.
Technip’s proprietary equipment offerings for FCC technologies include the following:
