Shaw receives RFCC contract from Star Petroleum Refining

The Shaw Group has been awarded a contract to provide the technology licence and process design package for the revamp of a residue fluid catalytic cracking (RFCC) unit for Star Petroleum Refining Company in Map Ta Phut, Thailand.

The design will upgrade the 40,800-barrels-per-day RFCC unit by incorporating the latest advances in reactor system technology.

Shaw jointly developed the proprietary RFCC technology through an alliance with Axens and Total that began in the early 1990s. To date, Shaw and Axens have licensed 51 grassroots units and performed more than 200 revamp projects.
