UOP LLC, a Honeywell company has announced that Egypt’s ANRPC will use UOP technology and equipment as part of a USD 300M, multi-year project to expand an existing, gasoline production facility to meet growing domestic demand for high-octane gasoline.
ANRPC will add a second UOP CCR Platforming™ process unit, including a modular CCR section, at the facility in Alexandria to produce high-quality reformate, which is used to produce high-octane, low-sulfur gasoline. Egypt became a net importer of gasoline in 2008, as domestic supply has not kept up with demand, which has grown by an average of 3% annually over the past 10 years.
Mike Millard, vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP’s Process Technology and Equipment business. “Since commercializing the technology, UOP has brought more than 250 CCR Platforming units on stream worldwide, with a combined capacity of more than 6 million barrels per day.”
UOP modular equipment is ideal for remote locations, short project timelines and regions with limited resources.
Honeywell UOP has worked with refining companies throughout the Middle East for more than 80 years.
ANRPC establishes, manages and operates refining, manufacturing and petrochemical plants to produce high-octane gasoline, LPG, propane, hydrogen, heavy naphtha and light reformate.
