LONDON (ICIS)--Technip has been awarded two front end engineering and design (FEED) contracts by ZapSibNeftekhim, a subsidiary of Russia-based petrochemical company Sibur, the French engineering firm said on Wednesday.

Technip said it will carry out the work on two plants located in Tobolsk, in the Tyumen region of Russia.

“The first contract concerns a linear low/high density gas phase polyethylene plant; the second one is for a high density slurry phase polyethylene plant,” it added.

Each plant will consist of two parallel production trains with a total capacity of 1.5m tonnes/year of polyethylene, said Technip.

It added that the two plants will be developed using licences of Switzerland-headquartered INEOS Technologies.

“Technip’s operating centres in Lyon, France, and St Petersburg, Russia, will execute the contracts, which are scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2013,” the firm said.

Financial details of the contracts were not disclosed.

On 21 June, Sibur said it had entered into an agreement with Germany’s Linde to design and build one of the world’s largest ethylene plants, in addition to the two polyethylene plants, at the Tobolsk complex.
