Advanced process control of debutanizers makes use of inferential predictions
Ferrari, L., Harrison, P., Total; Friedman, Y. Z., Petrocontrol

Following good experience with a generalized cut-point calculation (GCC) inferential package, which models main fractionators with side streams, French energy major Total decided to experiment with a generalized distillation shortcut (GDS) inferential package, which models simpler, two-product distillation columns.

Novel FCC technologies based on reaction chemistry of catalytic cracking
Xie C., Wei, X., Gong, J., Long, J., SINOPEC Engineering Inc.

The increased use of opportunity crude oils in refinery processing, the growing demand for light fuel, and the efficient conversion of petroleum resources to refined fuels and basic chemical raw materials have become the basis of green and low-carbon refining technology developments.

Managing process contaminants in amine treating units—Part 1: Lean amine filtration
Engel, D., Nexo Solutions; Northrop, P. S., ExxonMobil Upstream Research Co.

Installation and operation of suitable contaminant removal systems, such as filtration, coalescing and adsorption equipment, have become key components in amine units.

Remove carbonyls from gaseous hydrocarbon streams for ethylene plant service
Gondolfe J., Kurukchi S., Janus Technology Solutions LLC

Within the hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI), particularly the petrochemical sector, there remains an irritating series of reactions associated with acid gas removal (AGR) using dilute caustic soda—namely, aldol condensation reactions and their respective products.
