23 June 2015

PETRONAS has selected Axens as a technology provider for PETRONAS’ Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) project located in Pengerang, Johor, Malaysia.

RAPID is part of PETRONAS’ Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) development, which includes six major associated facilities namely the Pengerang Co-generation Plant, Re-gasification Terminal 2, Air Separation Unit, Raw Water Supply Project, Liquid Bulk Terminal as well as central and shared Utilities and Facilities. Developed within a 6,242 acres site in Pengerang, Johor, PIC forms part of the Johor State’s Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex (PIPC), which is under Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) to establish new engines of growth for Malaysia; whilst meeting future energy requirement and strengthening PETRONAS’ position as a key player in the Asian chemicals market, focusing on differentiated and specialty chemicals.

RAPID is estimated to cost $16 billion while the associated facilities will involve an investment of about $11 billion. PIC is poised for its refinery start-up by early 2019.

Axens was initially selected in October 2010 for a detailed feasibility study, after which their technologies were selected following an open bid in January 2012 on the basis of the best NPV (Net Present Value), as well as proven long term operating experiences supported by the technology and catalyst’s specific features; hence providing additional benefits to the project.
