McDermott starts up alkylate reactor at Chinese refinery

Houston-based oil equipment and services provider McDermott International Inc. said March 14 that it started up its "largest ever" CDAlky reactor to date at PetroChina Co. Ltd.'s refinery in Jilin, China.

The Lummus CDAlky gasoline alkylation technology is a proprietary sulfuric acid alkylation process that operates at significantly lower temperatures than conventional technology, which favors the formation of the desired product isomer, trimethylpentane.

The 9,000-barrel-per-day plant is one of four CDAlky projects awarded by PetroChina. McDermott described its 17-month design to startup as "unusually fast."

"The CDAlky process provides a higher quality product with lower capital and operating expenditures, offering the best overall solution for the clean fuel production of alkylate," said Daniel McCarthy, executive vice president for McDermott's Lummus technology business.
