Technip awarded technology license and process design package contract for ethane cracker in West Virginia, USA
Technip announced today that it has entered into a contract to supply its proprietary ethylene technology and process design package (PDP) for a world-class grassroots ethane cracker for the proposed ASCENT (Appalachian Shale Cracker Enterprise) petrochemical complex currently being evaluated by Odebrecht and Braskem in Parkersburg, West Virginia, USA.
Using ethane from shale gas, this cracker will produce ethylene to be used in polyethylene plants. Technip’s operating centers in Houston, Texas and Claremont, California, USA, and Rome, Italy, will execute this initial project phase.

As the largest ethylene licensor and contractor, Technip looks forward to bringing its experience to this important project in the Appalachian region.”
Technip, in a joint venture with Odebrecht and ICA Fluor, is also providing engineering, procurement and construction services for the Etileno XXI petrochemical complex in Mexico, which is being built by Braskem-IDESA and is expected to be commissioned in 2015.
