DuPont to work on Zohr gas field

DuPont Clean Technologies recently signed a contract with Kinetics Technology (KT) for Eni’s giant Zohr deepwater gas field in the Egyptian Exclusive Economic Zone of the Mediterranean Sea. Under the contract, DuPont will be delivering the technology license, engineering and proprietary equipment for two MECS® DynaWave® wet gas scrubbing units while KT will provide the related on-shore gas plant units in Port-Saïd with Claus and Tail Gas Treatment Units (TGTUs). This combination of technologies will allow the new Zohr project to meet stringent environmental requirements on sulfur dioxide emissions, in all operating cases.

“This is the second large contract DuPont Clean Technologies has been awarded in Africa in recent months, coming closely on the heels of delivering equipment for another Claus TGTU off-gas scrubber, alkylation unit and spent sulfuric acid plant for the Dangote Oil Refinery Company in Nigeria,” Yves Herssens, global market leader MECS DynaWave reported. “We are delighted to help Eni to comply with air emissions regulations using DuPont technology that is highly efficient and fully flexible.”

Licensed by DuPont, MECS DynaWave scrubbers are designed to work with a variety of reagents and handle multiple functions in one vessel. As such, the process makes it possible to quench the incinerated gas and remove potential particulates while absorbing the remaining acids from the Claus TGTUs. The technology also offers the flexibility of bypassing the sulfur recovery unit (SRU) or the SRU tail gas system during maintenance and repairs, so operations can continue without interruption.

Over the last 40 years, the MECS DynaWave technology has been successfully installed and used at more than 400 sites around the world in different industries. In the oil and gas industry alone, DuPont Clean Technologies, which licenses both the DynaWave scrubber technology and the BELCO® EDV® scrubber technology, has more than 150 successful wet scrubbing references around the globe. The large nozzles and open vessel design of the DynaWave scrubbers result in units that are virtually plug proof and able to handle any possible sulfur particulate entrainment. This results in higher on-stream time and lower maintenance and operational expenditures for the operator.
