Linear programs (LPs) are used for crude selection to calculate the optimal crude schedule for a given time frame, generally a month. The pipeline pumping schedule from a crude terminal to the refinery is generated by a simulation scheduling calculation., 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTCatalyst replacement strategy for a hydrocracking unit at a Middle East refinery, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTHP Industry Metrics, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTHP Innovations, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTHP People, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTImprove refinery compressor performance with a reengineered rotor, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTMeeting Africa’s demand for oil products, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTOptimize isomerization reactor temperatures and component RON, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTOvercome biases and challenges facing industry, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTPyrometer temperature measurement corrections ensure reliable reformer operation, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTReduce revamp costs with appropriate 3D laser scanning strategies, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTSecure the best benefits from C<sub>4</sub> hydrocarbon processing—Part 1: Separation sequences, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTSyngas from H<sub>2</sub>S and CO<sub>2</sub>: An alternative, pioneering synthesis route?Hydrogen sulfide (H<sub>2</sub>S) and carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) represent major concerns for the hydrocarbon industry. Both species are contaminants and, since their use as feedstock is minor, are considered troubling byproducts. H<sub>2</sub>S, which mainly derives from oil and gas desulfurization, cannot be vented. Consequently, neutralization is mandatory. Practically every refinery is equipped with a Claus sulfur recovery unit (SRU). Flue gases rich in CO<sub>2</sub> are vented, contributing to climate change; sequestration of CO<sub>2</sub> is technically viable, but remote disposal still remains a questionable end., 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMTWill India be Asia’s next downstream powerhouse?, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 GMT
