KBR will license and design its proprietary Veba Combi Cracking (VCC) technology to fill Jordan Petroleum Refining’s need for Residue Hydroprocessing.
“JPRC selected VCC technology among several alternative processes for the conversion of the bottom of the barrel in its forthcoming expansion project,” said Abdel Karim Alawin, JPRC CEO. “JPRC was looking for a feasible process that yields clean products with minimum negative environmental impact.” VCC will be the core of the refinery’s expansion plans to increase production to 120,000 barrels per day.
Following on recent implementations in Russia and China, “KBR is committed to the success of JPRC’s 4th Refinery Expansion,” said John Derbyshire, President, KBR Technology and Consulting. “We are excited to implement our unique VCC Technology and contribute to the success of this important and prestigious project.”
