MOSCOW (MRC) -- Becht Engineering has been awarded an Owner’s Engineering Quality Assurance Project for Inter Pipeline Heartland Petrochemical Complex in Alberta, Canada, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.
The Heartland Petrochemical Complex is being designed to convert locally sourced, low-cost propane into 525,000 tonnes per year of polypropylene utilizing Propane Dehydrogenation (PDH), Polypropylene (PP) and Central Utilities Block (CUB) facilities.
Construction of the Heartland Petrochemical Complex is in progress with completion scheduled for late 2021. Becht Engineering will conduct a series of Cold Eye Reviews focused on the operability of the complex.
Becht Engineering provides a wide array of engineering services to the refining, petrochemical, and power industries - including continuing services to 90% of the refineries in the United States and Canada.
As MRC wrote before, in December 2017, Inter Pipeline Ltd. announced that its board of directors has authorized the construction of a world-scale integrated propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and polypropylene (PP) plant. The facilities, collectively referred to as the Heartland Petrochemical Complex, are estimated to cost USD3.5 B in aggregate and will be located in Strathcona County, Alberta near Inter Pipeline’s Redwater Olefinic Fractionator.
