Maximizing asset use makes importing heavy oil for vacuum distillation and delayed coking attractive.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3422589/Consider-the-pros-and-cons-when-importing-heavy-oil-for-cokers.htmlSun, 01 Feb 2015 00:00:00 GMTShale gas drives new opportunities for US downstreamThis shift to lighter feeds for the SC will reduce the future availability of other petrochemical feedstocks—in particular, propylene.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3414420/Shale-gas-drives-new-opportunities-for-US-downstream.htmlThu, 01 Jan 2015 00:00:00 GMT
