Wood secures FEED contract for Chandra Asri's CAP2 petchem complex

As part of the contract, Wood will prepare FEED for HDPE, PP, Jetty and Tank Farm as well as project interface management

  • By ICN Group | December 07, 2021
Chandra Asri, Indonesia’s largest integrated petrochemical company, has launched its second world-scale petrochemical complex in Indonesia (CAP2 project) in response to the growing demand for domestic petrochemical products and reducing the dependence on imports.
 
The CAP2 complex will increase the company's total production capacity from 4.2 million tons to more than 8 million tons per year. This is expected to provide a stimulus for the local downstream petrochemical industry reducing the import burden and supporting job creation as well as the Making Indonesia 4.0 ambition which aims to see Indonesia become one of the 10 biggest economies by 2030.
 
To support Chandra Asri in achieving its ambitions, Wood has been awarded a contract with the petrochemical giant to deliver Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) on the CAP2 complex. Wood will prepare FEED for HDPE, PP, Jetty and Tank Farm as well as project interface management.
 
Wood will collaborate with Toyo Engineering Corporation, Samsung Co Ltd and PT Haskoning Indonesia on the remaining FEED packages of the CAP2 complex before commencing EPC Bidding.
 
Erwin Ciputra, President Director of Chandra Asri, said: “We are excited to announce that our second petrochemical complex project has entered an exciting new chapter with the selection of four leading international contractors to work on FEED. We will work together with our selected contractors to progress the CAP2 project in line with the jointly established target timelines. With the commencement of FEED work, we hope to realise the CAP2 project, building on our performance track record of completing the Integration Master Plan for our existing complex smoothly and safely. This will strengthen our position as a growth partner for all other industrial sectors as well as for the national economy.”
 
Henry Ling, Vice President of Wood in Thailand, said: “This new contract continues our strong track record of delivering robust engineering design on large complex petrochemical projects, further strengthening our strategic relationship in Indonesia with Chandra Asri.
 
“Our team of experts will leverage decades of experience to deliver fit-for-purpose solutions. We look forward to partnering with Chandra Asri on this CAP2 project.”
 
The CAP2 complex includes the Naphtha Cracker, Butadiene, Aromatic Recovery Plant (Benzene, Toluene, and Mixed Xylenes), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plant, Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) plant, which will be the first LDPE plant in Indonesia, and Polypropylene plant (PP).
 
The contract will be delivered by Wood’s centre of excellence Projects team in Thailand.
