First refining catalyst plant in Kuwait

Nov 21, 1996 01:00 AM

Kuwait Katalyst co.'s (KCC) plans to build a hydrodesulfurization (HDS) catalysts plant in Kuwait. The step will mark the start-up of the first refining catalysts production in the Persian Gulf region. KCC, owned by a conglomerate of Kuwait companies and governmental agencies, has licensed catalyst manufacturing technology from Japan Energy in a deal estimated at more than $ 62 mm. Plant design will be based on technology from Orient Catalyst, Japan Energy's catalysts division. Construction is expected to begin in January 1997 for production start-up by January 1998. The new plant will eventually reach a capacity of 5,000 tpy of HDS catalysts to supply most of Kuwait's estimated 3,500 tpy demand, driven primarily by Kuwait National Petroleum refineries. KCC also expects to supply demand from other catalyst consumers in the region. Alumina supply will be acquired on the open market. KCC will take all production from the plant and will be responsible for marketing.
