Grassroots Kazakhstan Base Oil Project Goes to CB&I

TOO Hill Resources (HILL) has awarded CB&I a contract for the license and engineering of a grassroots lube base oil plant in Shymkent, Kazakhstan, CB&I announced Monday.

"This multi-technology contract is another example of CB&I's breadth of technology portfolio at work," CB&I Executive Vice President of Technology Daniel M. McCarthy said in a company statement.

The plant will use proprietary Isocracking, Isodewaxing, Isofinishing and Solvent Deasphalting technologies from Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) to produce base oils and clean fuels, CB&I stated. CLG is a joint venture between Chevron U.S.A. Inc. and CB&I, and McCarthy noted the contract marks CLG's first award in Kazakhstan.
