Many refiners are using revamps to overhaul, modify or fine-tune their configurations to match the prevailing market conditions better. Compared with a grassroots project, revamps can offer an enhanced return on investment, a lower capital cost and a shorter gestation period. However, they are often substantially more challenging.
In this webcast, we will explain how to identify whether a revamp could unlock value at your facility and reveal some of the best practices that can help mitigate the challenges of such a project. In addition, we will review several real-life revamp projects that added substantial value to their facility’s economics. For instance, how a customer increased hydrocracker conversion to enhance middle distillate yield; or another customer revamped both its vacuum distillation unit and its hydrocracker to provide an optimized feed for a new lubricant base oil plant.
