EPC contract set for upcoming Propane Dehydrogenation Unit in Alberta
A 50/50 partnership comprised of Fluor and Kiewit Construction Services named Heartland Canada Partners (HCP) has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services contract for propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit in Alberta’s Sturgeon County. This PDH unit is part of a planned integrated PDH plant and polypropylene (PP) upgrading facility for Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation (CKPC), a 50/50 joint venture between Pembina Pipeline Corporation and Kuwait's Petrochemical Industries Company.
This integrated PDH/PP complex has an envisioned capacity of 550,000 tpy of polypropylene from locally sourced propane, with a wide range of end products such as auto parts, food storage containers, medical devices, etc. Pembina considers this to be a strategic project designed for customers in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin for a variety of uses.
The EPC contract value was not disclosed, but Pembina has previously stated that this contract would be approximately 60% of the project’s estimated capital cost figure of $4.9 billion. This PDH unit is currently expected to reach physical completion in late 2023.
