Two modular cryogenic plants

ICA Fluor Daniel, the Mexico-based partnership of Fluor Corporation and Empresas ICA Sociedad Controladora has been awarded a USD 136.6 million contract to provide engineering, procurement, construction and start-up support services for two plants and one fuel terminal for Pemex Gas y Petroquimica Basica. Located in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico, the two plants will cool feed gas so that liquid hydrocarbons can be separated out and recovered. The consortium formed by ICA Fluor Daniel and Linde Process Plants Inc., with Ortloff technology as licensor, will develop the project, which is scheduled to be completed in 550 days. “This project offers to our client a 98 % propane recovery, accomplished through a very straightforward process. The design allows minimizing gas consumption and the use of a compact Liquid Recovery Unit with low-pressure drops and energy conservation,” said Jorge Borja, ICA Fluor Daniel general director. Pemex Gas y Petroquimica Basica is a subsidiary of Pemex, the Mexican state-owned petroleum company.
