KP Engineering Builds FCC Gasoline Hydrotreater For Wynnewood Refining

KP Engineering completed a 13,000 BPSD FCC Gasoline Hydrotreater for Wynnewood Refining Company in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. The project, which was executed through an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract, achieved mechanical completion in September.

The hydrodesulfurization unit utilizes the Prime-G+™ process, licensed from Axens North America, Inc. The unit is designed to produce FCC gasoline with a sulfur content of less than 50 ppm and is a key component of Wynnewood’s overall strategy for clean transportation fuels. Unit startup is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2010.

The completion of the gasoline hydrotreater marks the fifth project executed by KP Engineering, and its predecessor, for Wynnewood Refining Company since 2005.
