Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) has been awarded a
lump sum contract to supply its proprietary technology, detailed
engineering and procurement services for a reformer for a hydrogen
plant. The plant is located near the STAR Aegean Refinery to be built in
Izmir, Aliaga, Turkey.
The reformer, which is the heart of a hydrogen plant, will produce
160,000 Nm3/h(1) of hydrogen product and high
quality export steam to be used by the refinery.
Early involvement represents a strategic focus for Technip. After having
provided basic engineering for the complete hydrogen plant, the Group
will now carry out the detailed engineering and supply of the reformer,
based on Technip’s proprietary top-fired steam methane reforming
Stan Knez, President, Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology,
commented: “We are delighted to continue our involvement with this
project and see that the application of Technip’s proprietary technology
is increasing our global footprint in refinery applications.”
The reformer project will be executed by Technip’s office in Zoetermeer,
the Netherlands, a Technip center of excellence in hydrogen technology.
The grassroots refinery is foreseen to come on-stream in 2018.
With over 260 hydrogen units licensed worldwide, Technip has been
consistently recognized as the market leader in the design and supply of
hydrogen reformers and hydrogen production plants.

About onshore products
Hydrogen: hydrogen is widely used in petroleum refining
processes to remove impurities found in crude oil such as
sulfur, olefins and aromatics to meet the product fuels
specifications. Removing these components allows gasoline and
diesel to burn cleaner and thus makes hydrogen a critical
component in the production of cleaner fuels needed by modern,
efficient internal combustion engines.
Reformer: a reformer (also called steam reformer or steam
methane reformer) is a widely used industrial processing device
in which a fossil fuel reacts with steam at high temperatures in
the presence of a catalyst to produce hydrogen.
