L&T bags mega EPCC contract from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery for new cracker unit

Mumbai, January 04, 2021

L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering Limited (LTHE), a wholly owned subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro (L&T), has won a mega contract (worth over Rs 7,000 crore) from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery Limited (HRRL), a joint venture between Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) and Government of Rajasthan.

The engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract is for setting up a Dual Feed Cracker Unit (DFCU) having a capacity of 890 kilo tonne per annum (KTPA) for Rajasthan Refinery Project at Barmer, Rajasthan. The DFCU is the biggest EPCC contract awarded in the country to date in the refinery and petrochemical sector. The unit is licensed by TechnipFMC.

Subramanian Sarma, Whole-time Director & Sr. EVP (Energy), Larsen & Toubro Limited and CEO & MD, LTHE, commented, “We are very delighted to be part of this mega development project in Rajasthan and I would like to thank HRRL and HPCL for having trust in our capabilities to deliver such complex process plants with high standards of HSE and Quality.”

The DFCU is used to convert refinery naphtha and offgases to produce polymer grade ethylene and propylene by the process of thermal cracking. The ethylene and propylene is used as feed stock for downstream polyethylene unit and polypropylene unit. The process also produces by-products like butadiene, benzene, toluene and gasoline. 

L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering is already executing three packages, namely residue up-gradation facility, crude distillation unit / vacuum distillation unit and full conversion hydrocracker unit for HPCL’s ongoing Visakh Refinery Modernisation Project at Visakhapatnam. LTHE has a proven track record of over 25 years in the refinery and petrochemical sector and bagging this contract from HRRL reinforces our integrated capabilities in executing critical plants for the sector.

The contract is awarded through an international competitive bidding on lump sum turnkey (LSTK) basis. With both the petro fluidised catalytic cracking unit and dual feed cracker unit projects, LTHE has emerged as the largest EPC contractor in the entire Rajasthan Refinery Project. 

Organised under offshore, onshore, construction services, modular fabrication and engineering services verticals, L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering delivers 'design to build' engineering and construction solutions across the hydrocarbon spectrum.
