KT-Kinetics awarded upgrade contract for Sonangol Luanda refinery in Angola
Sonangol is moving ahead with upgrades to its 65,000 bpd refinery in Luanda, Angola, involving installation of two new process units plus utilities and offsites.
In cooperation with Angola state-owned Sonangola, Eni awarded a $200 million contract to KT-Kinetics Technology, a subsidiary of Maire Technimont SPA. KT-Kinetics Technology will provide EPC services for a naphtha hydrotreater witha naphtha splitter, and a catalytic reforming unit
The new units will enable the refinery to quadruple the gasoline production to 1,100 tonnes/day from 280 tonnes/day, as well as improve product quality while minimizing the site’s global environmental footprint. The project is scheduled for start-up and testing in about 2 years.
