Petrochemical demand will increase with gross domestic product, while the demand for motor fuels will only show modest growth and may even decline in certain regions, given environmental/legislative pressures and the introduction of battery-powered electric vehicles.

Petrochemical demand will increase with gross domestic product, while the demand for motor fuels will only show modest growth and may even decline in certain regions, given environmental/legislative pressures and the introduction of battery-powered electric vehicles. Any new oil refinery will likely include petrochemical facilities, as well. In Part 1, published in the July issue of Hydrocarbon Processing, the authors reviewed several possible refinery/petrochemical complex configurations around an RFCCU (FIG. 1 from Part 1) or HCU (FIG. 4 from Part 1). It was shown that investments, and gross and net margins, vary considerably between the various configurations. This article will evaluate
