- Client: TOTAL Olefins Antwerpen (Total Group)
Rome,3 April 2014 – Maire Tecnimont S.p.A. announces that its subsidiary KT – Kinetics Technology S.p.A. has been awarded by Total Olefins Antwerpen (Total Group) two contracts for the implementation of the Refinery Off Gas project (ROG) at Total’s Antwerp refinery in Belgium. The ROG 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.
The overall value of the two contracts will be approximately €190 million.
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 will be 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.

This important achievement reinforces Maire Tecnimont Group’s distinctive competences in gas processing thanks to the technological expertise of KT – Kinetics Technology and represents an important reference to best position Maire Tecnimont in the refining business. Moreover, this award strengthens the relationship with Total, one of the supermajor oil companies.
