bpd processing capacity
Office: Houston, Texas 
Customer: Petrobras 
Location: Itaborai, Brazil 
Timeframe: 2007-2013 
Rio de Janeiro’s petrochemical complex will be one of the largest industrial undertakings in the history of Petrobras and Brazil.

Due to come on-stream in 2013, COMPERJ will have the processing capacity for 150,000 bpd of Brazilian heavy oil and will include first, second, and third generation units. This project will require approximately 4,000 major pieces of equipment and in excess of 2,000 P&IDs, and the site plan will take nearly 25km2 to accommodate infrastructure and process units.

Executed from three of WorleyParsons’ global hubs, key challenges successfully overcome included cultural, language, and regulatory barriers, the large size of the project, and the coordination with the many licensors and FEED contractors involved.
