Technip was awarded a contract by CHS Inc. to provide technology as well as engineering, procurement and construction for a 40,000-normal-cubic-meter-per-hour grassroots hydrogen plant at the CHS Refinery in Laurel, MT. The plant is part of ongoing upgrades to boost efficiency, increase diesel production and process additional crudes at its refinery.
The design will use Technip’s top-fired steam reforming technology to produce high purity hydrogen and export steam, as well as the latest nitrogen oxide reduction technology to ensure minimum emissions. Technip’s operating center in Claremont, CA, will execute the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2017.
Previously, Technip provided a steam reformer and a parallel reformer for the CHS Refinery in Laurel and completed two hydrogen projects for the CHS Refinery in McPherson, KS.
