Spain: Licensed Technology Chevron Lummus Global Awarded Technology Contract for Cepsa’s Algeciras Refinery
Chevron Lummus Global has used the proprietary LC-Fining and Isotreating technologies for the design of the project. With the installation of the new technologies, the refinery aims at strengthening Cepsa’s position as a major provider of marine diesel and bunker fuel oil.
California/USA – Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) has recently announced its selection 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 major 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 Organisation (IMO) regulations,” said Ujjal Mukherjee, Managing Director of CLG.
CLG’s LC-Fining technology process provides high conversion of residues selectively to liquid products with superior performance and reliability. Isotreating technology employs state-of-the-art hydrotreating catalyst to produce high-quality products with long run lengths and minimal by-product formation.
