The Linde Group announced today that it has entered into an Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA) with Shell Global Solutions International B. V. to build ethane cracking units on a global basis.
The EFA is for ten years, with an option to be extended. The EFA covers the licensing, engineering, procurement and construction services, as well as for the supply of proprietary equipment of ethane cracking units. Linde understands that the EFA contract is a renewed opportunity to build upon their long-time relationship with Shell.
With its outstanding ethylene technology and project execution excellence, Linde is committed in contributing to the expansion of Shell’s global petrochemical market. To benefit Shell and its partners, Linde intends to deliver major cost savings for ethane cracking units from standardisation and repeatability effects.
As a first step in the EFA Linde was awarded the contract for the licensing and basic engineering design package for a potential world scale ethane cracker unit.
Linde LLC has been recommended for certification of its Birmingham, Alabama air separation plant under the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® program.
