KBR Secures Contract for Its Solid Acid Alkylation Technology (K-SAA)
KBR, Inc. announced that it has entered into a contract with Wynnewood Refining Company, LLC (Wynnewood) for engineering and design services relating to KBR's Solid Acid Alkylation Technology (K-SAATTM) for Wynnewood's refinery located in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide basic engineering and design (BED) services for its K-SAATTM technology and the opportunity to utilize the technology to revamp the existing Hydrofluoric acid (HF) alkylation unit at the Wynnewood Refinery.

K-SAATTM is a revolutionary technology to produce alkylate, which is an ultra-clean gasoline blendstock. Unlike traditional refinery alkylation technologies that utilize strong acids, K-SAATTM produces alkylates by combining light olefins and isobutane using a solid catalyst that provides yield and operating cost benefits by avoiding complex acid handling and cooling cost.

"I am delighted to announce that Wynnewood is considering KBR's innovative and groundbreaking K-SAATTM technology to revamp the HF Alky unit at Wynnewood," said John Derbyshire, President, KBR Technology. "K-SAATTM produces an ideal blendstock for increased gasoline octane which is in high demand and does not use corrosive liquid acids. Alkylate octane obtained through the K-SAATTM process is higher compared to other liquid and solid acid alkylation processes under a wide range of process conditions. We are honored to support Wynnewood and to showcase the tremendous potential of K-SAATTM for grassroots and revamp projects."

Since the first K-SAATTM unit was commissioned, early this year in China, K-SAATTM technology has received significant interest from refiners globally. K-SAATTM technology reflects KBR's commitment to provide innovative technologies that give our customers a competitive edge in attractive markets.

Global demand for motor fuels continues to rise while stricter environmental standards and oxygenate blend requirements for gasoline place a premium on clean burning fuels and blendstocks such as alkylate. KBR's K-SAAT process is a highly adaptable technology that produces a more cost effective, higher quality alkylate than conventional liquid acid catalysts or other solid acid catalysts.

The key to the K-SAATTM technology is ExSactTM, a revolutionary solid acid catalyst engineered to overcome rapid deactivation limitations of solid-acid catalysts and provide superior alkylation performance. K-SAATTM offers the capabilities to upgrade olefins ranging from ethylene to amylenes into higher value alkylate.

KBR's licensed process technology is found in more than half of the world's FCC units, a majority of residue upgrading units and more than 100 hydroprocessing units. Our emphasis on heavy oil upgrading, improving bottom-of-the-barrel yields, producing clean fuels, increasing chemical yields and providing a wider range of operating flexibility to refiners makes KBR a preferred partner to address any refining challenge.
