TOKYO (ICIS)--Japanese engineering firm Toyo Engineering has been awarded a contract to build a 2,000 tonne/day ammonia plant in Luwuk, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, by Panca Amara Utama (PAU), Toyo said in a statement on Thursday.
The plant is scheduled to be competed in the third quarter of 2015, according to Toyo.
The turnkey-based contract covers engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and commissioning services, Toyo said.
The ammonia process will be based on technology by Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) of the US, according to Toyo.
The aim of the project is to produce ammonia as a feedstock for downstream chemicals such as fertilizer, acrylonitrile (ACN), caprolactam (capro) and ammonium nitrate (AN) using natural gas produced from the Senoro and Toili natural gas fields in Central Sulawesi, Toyo said.
Toyo will carry out the project together with Indonesian engineering firm Inti Karya Persada Tehnik (IKPT), part of the Toyo group, the company said.
PAU is a subsidiary of Surya Esa Perkasa (SEP), one of Indonesia’s key liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) producing companies, according to Toyo.
