Nghi Son Refinery & Petrochemical LLC (NSRP) has awarded Axens the basic engineering design contracts for some of the units of the new 200,000 barrel per day (bpd) refinery which is to be constructed in Thanh Hoa province located in the Northern part of Vietnam.

Axens will supply the following process technologies for the refinery:

  • R2R™ - Residue Fluidized Catalytic Cracking (RFCC) unit;
  • Prime-D™ - Gas Oil desulfurization unit;
  • Prime-K™ - Kerosene desulfurization unit.

The refinery units will be provided with the latest advanced technologies making this one of the most modern refinery complexes in the world. The facility is scheduled and targeted to be operational in 2013.

The RFCC unit will incorporate advanced features to efficiently crack residue feed to maximize gasoline and propylene production. Polymer-grade propylene will be supplied to a downstream polypropylene unit. Axens’ RFCC is part of the FCC Technology Alliance between Axens, Shaw, Total and IFP.

Axens is a leading provider of clean fuels solutions. Axens’ desulfurization technologies are the benchmark for ultra-low sulfur middle distillate production. Both desulfurization units will employ the latest high activity hydrotreating catalysts and high performance reactor internals.
