Petrobras Selects UOP for Two New Refineries

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/10/2010, Location: South America

UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, announced that Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) has selected UOP to provide all of the process technologies for two new maximum diesel refineries to be built in Brazil.

UOP hydrocracking and hydrotreating technologies will be used to produce high-quality diesel fuel from Brazilian national crude oils at two new refineries. Petrobras plans to construct a two-train 600,000 barrel per day (bpd) facility in Maranhao, Brazil, to be known as Premium I, and a single-train 300,000 bpd facility in Ceara, Brazil, to be known as Premium II. Basic engineering for the refineries is under way. Commissioning of the first train at the Premium I facility is planned in 2014 and the Premium II facility in 2017.

“The high yields from our market-leading hydrocracking technology combined with our proven methodology for refinery optimization will enable Petrobras to produce the maximum yields of high-quality diesel product while maximizing the economic value of the project,” said Rajeev Gautam, president & CEO of Honeywell’s UOP. “The work processes we employ allow us to streamline new refinery projects, optimize yields and energy and maximize the return on investment for our customers.”

According to OPEC, global demand for diesel fuels is expected to grow from 24.5 million bpd to 34.2 million bpd by 2030 driven by an increasing share of diesel cars in developing regions around the world. Diesel production is projected to account for 60 percent of the rise in oil demand expected over the next 20 years. Honeywell’s UOP is a recognized leader in diesel production process technology, products and equipment.

Both facilities will utilize the UOP UnicrackingTM hydrocracking process and the UOP UnionfiningTM hydrotreating process to upgrade feedstocks to ultra-low-sulfur-diesel. Selective Yield Delayed Coking technology provided by Foster Wheeler USA will also be employed to maximize diesel production by converting the residue portion of the crude oil to an intermediate product used in diesel production. UOP will also serve as the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contractor to provide a firm basis for procurement and construction at the site.

Design of the crude and vacuum systems in the refineries will be provided by Process Consulting Services, Inc. through an alliance partnership with UOP.
