HOUSTON (ICIS)--CB&I has been selected by Chinese petrochemicals firm Ningbo Haiyue New Material to provide engineering work and technology for a planned grassroots propane dehydrogenation unit at Ningbo City, Zhejiang province, the US engineering firm said on Tuesday.

The project will produce 600,000 tonnes/year of propylene and is expected to start up in 2014, CB&I said, without disclosing financial details.

An unnamed Ningbo Haiyue company source told ICIS about plans for the project last week. The facility would use liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as feedstock, the source said.
