Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) has been selected by Compañía Española de Petróleos (Cepsa) to provide licensed technology for its Algeciras Refinery in Spain. CLG has completed the design of the unit employing its proprietary LC-FINING and ISOTREATING technologies. The scope of work also includes the supply of catalysts, proprietary equipment, and engineering.

With an innovative process design integrating 36 700 BPSD of LC-FINING technology with 27 600 BPSD of ISOTREATING technology, the efficient unit will strengthen Cepsa’s position as a provider of marine diesel and bunker fuel oil.

“This award further demonstrates CLG’s technology leadership in complete bottom of the barrel solutions to meet future International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations,” said Ujjal Mukherjee, Managing Director of CLG.

CLG’s LC-FINING technology process provides high conversion of residues selectively to liquid products. ISOTREATING technology employs state-of-the-art hydrotreating catalysts to produce high-quality products with long run lengths and minimal by-product formation.
