Focus on reconfiguring fuel grade coke (to produce needle coke), as well as co-processing recycle waste plastics/rubber through a refinery coker.
Leveraging high severity operating conditions through a HS-FCC unit to maximise residue conversion to propylene & aromatics.
Resid upgrading case studies for mega refinery & capacity expansion scenarios resulting in a very effective solution to address higher distillate yield with optimum utilization of existing assets, while working in sync towards realization of the sustainability “roadmap”.
Digital Energy Management System (DEMS) overcomes limitations of any conventional energy management program by synergetic synchronization of KBC’s consulting and technology capabilities. DEMS first pinpoints widening performance gaps against the Best Technology®, then identify / track opportunities and its relevance on a continuous basis and take actions in real-time for improvements. Thus, enabling efficient and autonomous site operations.
Dastur recently completed a feasibility study covering the concept, techno-economics and engineering basis for carbon capture from HGUs at IOCL Koyali Refinery. The project envisions capturing ~0.7 mtpa CO2 for Enhanced Oil Recovery at ONGC’s Gandhar oil fields and purifying part of captured CO2 to 99.9% for F&B grade supply.
Highly parallelized laboratory testing units add significant value to industrial operations as multifunctional catalyst systems can be screened and ranked at an unprecedented rate and under industrially relevant conditions. This contribution highlights the strong benefits of catalyst testing within refining and in the processing and coprocessing of renewable feedstocks.
These sessions will each be chaired by PTQ
Integration of FCC technology and naphtha-based steam cracking technology can maximise olefin yields for the chemicals market.
Treatment of refinery off gas for C2 recovery/cracker feedstock.
UNS N08935 super-austenitic alloys based on Ni-Cr-Mo alloys provide extremely good corrosion resistance to corrosive environments like chlorides, acids, sulphides, etc.
Improving the economic viability of Indian Oil’s refinery expansion projects includes integration of petrochemical infrastructure to meet the growing demand for plastics and polymers.
Continue your conversations into the evening and relax over a few drinks with your peers at the end of the first day.
Do you want to maximize compressor uptime and fleet performance? This presentation will help you to understand the benefits of digitalized repair and maintenance processes as well as the importance of proper component refurbishment by sharing insights and practical experiences that have been collected within the industry.
These sessions will each be chaired by Bradford Cook, Vice President - Sales & Marketing, Sabin Metals Corporation
In the current unpredictable energy environment and global energy transition, it is challenging for refineries to maximize profitability while ensuring lower carbon emissions for a greener footprint. Upgrading heavy feedstocks into valuable products using a hydrocracking process can be an important contributing factor in a refinery’s profitability. This presentation explains how to achieve an efficient and profitable process by using Alfa Laval welded heat exchangers in a key position in hydrocracking process.
Achieve refinery-wide Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by reducing FCC regenerator flue gas emissions.
An integrated approach to process optimization techniques and energy conservation measures with state-of-the-art simulation tools, valourisation of molecules and intervention of new technologies.
This presentation will examine precious metals supply, demand and recycling; review the value chain drivers within the precious metals catalyst life cycle; and specifically the return on investment to be gained through understanding catalyst sampling, the lab analysis and the final commercial exchange of assets.
These sessions will each be chaired by Sanjay Khanna, Director Refineries, Bharat Petroleum Corporation
Inducting new crudes in the blend requires holistic approach towards measuring & mitigating risks. The biggest challenge with new crudes in diet is often seen in tank farm and desalter which eventually becomes bottleneck for sustaining the Refinery operations. The presentation will focus on how the Innovative technology-Reactive Adjunct Chemistry (RAC) has helped Refiners achieve crude flexibility.
Overview of Indian Oil’s Eco-friendly plastic-to-fuel technology (INDEcoP2F) developed for disposal of all types of waste plastic by conversion to valuable fuels.
These sessions will each be chaired by Dr Sunil Kumar, Principal Scientist, CSIR-Indian Institute of Petroleum Dehradun, Mohkampur, Dehradu
Development of a model for complex thermal design of natural convection finned tubing, leading to IOCL’s redesigned finned tube cooler in a parallel arrangement.
Long-term optimization opportunities must be identified against a volatile market where operational strategies can vary more than one in between refinery or unit run-lengths.
The novel scheme developed with innovative utilization of waste heat, process water and stripping effect of superheated process hydrocarbon vapour for crude oil processing in CDU has the potential to reduce the ADC bottom stripping steam by 80-100% and overall energy cost by ~16% to revamp existing and designing the grassroots unit.
A single FT-NIR analyzer provides the benefit of fast and high performance on just one process measurement for a host of key properties/qualities, such as RON, distillation properties, aromatic content, RVP, cetane, etc.
