Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) has announced the successful start-up of a vacuum residue upgrading plant using CLG Vacuum Residue Desulfurization (VRDS) technology.

The plant is part of CNOOC Oil & Petrochemicals Co. Ltd’s Huizhou Refinery Phase II project.

The 4 million tpy VRDS unit converts very low value residue to high quality RFCC feed and enables the RFCC to significantly increase the production of gasoline and propylene.

Leon de Bruyn, Managing Director of CLG, said: "CLG has substantial global market share for RDS/VRDS technology […] As a world leading hydroprocessing technology licensor, we are excited to continue hearing success stories such as CNOOC’s Huizhou Refinery and grateful to see our technologies offering a competitive advantage to our customers.”
