Alexandria National Refining And Petrochemical Company To Modernize Egypt Refinery With Honeywell Technology

  • Honeywell UOP has been chosen to provide engineering services to ANRPC to improve the quality of their gasoline blend stock and produce feedstock for petrochemical production
  • Refinery revamp will increase gasoline production through ANRPC facilities which will help decrease the dependency on imported fuels in Egypt

Honeywell announced today that Alexandria National Refining and Petrochemical Company (ANRPC) will upgrade their existing naphtha complex using Honeywell UOP engineering services to increase the production of gasoline which will help decrease the dependency on imported fuels in Egypt.

The upgrade, which creates high quality product and feedstock for petrochemical production, will be applied to two UOP Naphtha Hydrotreating Units to pretreat the feedstocks to two CCR Platforming Process Units and a Penex/DIH Process Units at ANRPC’s refinery in Alexandria, Egypt.

Naphtha is a valuable petrochemical feedstock traditionally derived from crude oil and natural gas condensates. Honeywell UOP will revamp the naphtha complex to increase ANRPC’s naphtha processing, projected to be up to 125 percent.

“ANRPC has utilized Honeywell technology in their refinery since 2001, they know and trust our products and have selected Honeywell UOP because of its ability to understand our customers’ needs for these complex refinery upgrades,” said Laura Leonard, vice president and general manager, Honeywell UOP Process Technologies. “Our technologies will allow this refinery to revamp its naphtha complexes resulting in improved production at ANRPC.”“ANRPC would like to express their profound happiness and gratitude for Honeywell UOP’s technology in our revamp and capacity upgrade project,” said ANRPC Chairman, Mr. Salah Gaber. “We hope to collaborate with Honeywell UOP again in the future.”

ANRPC is considered one of the biggest refining companies in Egypt working under the umbrella of Egyptian general petroleum corporation (EGPC) it was founded with the latest international standards using the license of UOP (Honeywell).

Alexandria National Refining and Petrochemicals Company establishes, manages and operates refining, manufacturing and petrochemical plants to produce high-octane gasoline, LPG, propane, hydrogen, heavy naphtha and light reformate, among others. Founded in 1999, ANRPC is based in Alexandria, Egypt, and sells products domestically and internationally.
