Stone & Webster

TPPI project in Indonesia

In late 1996, Stone & Webster contacted Integral Vision to do a complete analysis of all the project management systems in order to integrate them. The analysis took Integral Vision to Houston, Boston and Milton Keynes, England where a final presentation was done.

In February 24, 1997 Stone & Webster, as managing contractor and leader of a consortium, has signed a major lump sum, turnkey contract to build a large grassroots petrochemical complex at Tuban, East Java, Indonesia. The consortium contract, valued in excess of $ 2.3 billion, is with P.T. Trans-Pacific Petrochemical Indotama (TPPI), an Indonesia petrochemical joint venture company. The joint venture shareholders are P.T. Tirtainas Majutama, an Indonesian industrial conglomerate; Trans- Pacific Petrochemical Limited, an affiliate of Tirtamas; a subsidiary of The Siam Cement Public Company Limited; and Nissho Iwai Corporation.

The consortium is comprised of US Stone & Webster, AEC International Projects, Inc., Process Engineers, Inc. and a major Japanese engineering contractor. Work has been initiated on the project with site clearing underway.

The plant will begin commercial operations in mid-1999 by producing 3 mmt of olefins and aromatics and other petrochemical products per year, including 700,000 tons of ethylene, 380,000 tons of propylene and 500,000 tons of paraxylene.

Stone & Webster, will provide full engineering and design; procurement and supply of all process equipment and materials; and construction, commissioning, start-up and training for the ethylene plant, off sites, utilities and infrastructure facilities. In addition to these EPC services, Stone & Webster is providing its proprietary olefins technology which includes the Ultra-Selective Cracking (USC) pyrolysis system and the Advanced Recovery System (ARS).

Stone & Webster selected Integral Vision to implement by phases PMIV for their TPPI project. Implementation started in Jakarta in mid 1997 with the Estimating and Project Control modules.
