Business Trends: HPI construction: Capital expenditures remain above $1.8 T https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/may-2019/trends-resources/business-trends-hpi-construction-capital-expenditures-remain-above-18-t As the hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI) nears the middle of 2019, Hydrocarbon Processing is providing an assessment of the global midstream/downstream processing industries’ capital investments. Retrospective: Then and now— Looking toward the future https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2019/january-2019/columns/retrospective-then-and-now-looking-toward-the-future In 1982, I wrote an article called “Using process computers as robots for refining operations,” which was published in the May issue of Hydrocarbon Processing. Details on high-impact refining and petrochemical projects presently under construction, as chosen by <i>HP</i> editors and readers https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2018/december-2018/ihpi-top-project-awards/details-on-high-impact-refining-and-petrochemical-projects-presently-under-construction-as-chosen-by-ihpi-editors-and-readers The global hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI) continues to expand and modernize to efficiently meet growing demand for energy, transportation fuels and petrochemicals. <i>Hydrocarbon Processing</i> Awards https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2018/august-2018/ihydrocarbon-processingi-awards/ihydrocarbon-processingi-awards Hydrocarbon Processing, the downstream processing sector’s leading technical publication, has announced the finalists for its second annual awards. Remove carbonyls from gaseous hydrocarbon streams for ethylene plant service https://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2018/june-2018/special-focus-process-optimization/remove-carbonyls-from-gaseous-hydrocarbon-streams-for-ethylene-plant-service 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.
