The project relates to two contracts for the implementation of the Refinery Off Gas project (ROG) at Total’s Antwerp refinery in Belgium. The first contract relates to the execution on an EPC basis of the new ROG unit, aimed at processing refinery off gases and recovering hydrocarbons. The new ROG Unit has been fully modularized in order to minimize site construction activities. The second contract relates to the execution on an EPCa (Engineering, Procurement and Construction assistance) basis of the modification to the existing naphtha cracker unit necessary to process the hydrocarbons streams recovered in new ROG and interconnecting works.
The project is aimed at recovering significant volumes of valuable hydrocarbons that are currently burnt as fuel gas and at processing such streams in the existing naphtha cracker.
Total Raffinaderij Antwerpen is one of Total’s six major integrated platforms globally, and the crucial link in Total’s integrated petrochemical complex in Belgium. This project is part of one of the biggest investment schemes in a European refinery.
