Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) has been awarded by
Tecnicas Reunidas a significant(1) contract to supply three
hydrogen reformers as part of the hydrogen production facility at
PETRONAS’ Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID)
project located in the state of Johor, Malaysia.
As the heart of the hydrogen plant, the reformers will produce 344,500 Nm3/h(2)

steam to the refinery steam network. The supply of the reformers is
based on Technip’s proprietary top-fired steam methane reforming
technology. The reformers are expected to come on-stream in 2018.

Malaysia, and along with its six major associated facilities, forms the
Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC). The associated facilities are the
Pengerang Co-generation Plant, LNG Re-gasification Terminal, Air
Separation Unit, Raw Water Supply project, the Liquid Bulk Terminal and
the Central and Shared Utilities and Facilities.
Early involvement represents a strategic focus for Technip. Prior to the
supply of the hydrogen reformers, Technip was involved in the front-end
engineering design for the RAPID project.
The reformer project will be executed by Technip’s office in Zoetermeer,
the Netherlands, a center of excellence for hydrogen and syngas
technology. With more than 260 hydrogen production units licensed
