Lummus awarded contract from LUKOIL for ether, alkylation technologies

Lummus Technology announced it has been awarded a contract from LUKOIL Permnefteorgsintez for a new integrated methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) and alkylation plant at LUKOIL's refinery in Perm, Russia. The MTBE unit will use Lummus' CDEtherol technology and the alkylation unit will use Lummus' CDAlky technology.

Lummus processes will produce MTBE and alkylate, delivering clean, high-octane gasoline blend components improving fuel efficiency and reducing vehicle emissions. Lummus' scope includes technology licensing, basic engineering, technical services and proprietary equipment supply.

"We are grateful to LUKOIL and to be able to support them for many years and in various locations. This extension of our relationship underscores LUKOIL's continued confidence in our comprehensive technology solutions to assist them in producing cleaner, more efficient fuels," said Leon de Bruyn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lummus Technology. "The CDEtherol and CDAlky combination will provide world-class performance, flexibility and lower process emissions. These were important factors in LUKOIL's technology evaluation, and more importantly, they will be critical throughout the refinery's life cycle."

Lummus' CDEtherol and CDAlky technologies provide significant benefits to operators, including superior product quality, reduced utility and energy consumption, reduced maintenance requirements and the flexibility to produce biofuels in the future.
