Lurgi AG (Frankfurt, Germany; www.lurgi.com) has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction  (EPC) contract by North West Upgrading, Calgary, Canada, for the execution of a gasifier unit for North West's Upgrader project. This major contract, worth in excess of 310 Million euros, encompasses the design, procurement and construction of a new gasification-based hydrogen plant with a capacity of approximately 135,000 Nm3/h. It will include Lurgi's proprietary Multi-Purpose Gasification (MPG) and Rectisol gas-sweetening processes. High purity hydrogen produced from the gasifier unit will be used within the upgrader processes to make valuable products such as ultralow-sulphur diesel. High-purity CO2 will be captured from the process and sold for enhanced-oil recovery applications. 
Mechanical completion and commissioning of the gasification-based hydrogen unit is expected in the first half of 2011.
