Nghi Son Refinery & Petrochemical LLC (NSRP) - a joint venture between PetroVietnam, Idemitsu Kosan, Kuwait Petroleum Europe, and Mitsui Chemicals - has recently started up a large residuum hydrodesulfurisation (RHDS) unit at its new 200 000 bpd refinery in Thanh Hóa Province in northern Vietnam.
The 105 000 bpd RHDS unit started up in May 2018 and passed performance guarantees in December 2018, Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) reported. The unit is based on CLG’s proprietary RDS technology and was included in the new refinery configuration to process Kuwaiti crude oil into products to help meet Vietnam’s rising demand for transportation fuels and petrochemicals. CLG’s RDS technology utilises a modular design that allows full flexibility in operation of this unit, currently the largest operational RDS unit in the world until additional RDS units utilising CLG’s technology start up in the Middle East and Asia.
