Tailored specifically to the requirements of refinery operators, the modular and scalable turbomachinery concept combines centrifugal compressor and prime mover to a single-lift unit, serving refinery applications like hydrotreating and hydrocracking.
Axens signed several technology licensing agreements with Pertamina for its major expansion project to upgrade residue into gasoline in Balikpapan and for a new middle distillate hydrotreater in Cilacap.

On April 2, 2010, a catastrophic fire occurred within the naphtha hydrotreating unit in the Tesoro refinery in Anacortes, Washington. The final CSB report, including recommendations, was issued in May 2014, more than four years after the incident that resulted in the tragic loss of seven lives. This work critically reviews the CSB analysis of this incident and several of its resulting recommendations.

Global demand for middle distillates, especially diesel, is increasing.
Honeywell UOP has expanded its portfolio of hydrotreating catalysts, which are used to remove impurities and contaminants from petroleum and other refining feedstocks to produce cleaner-burning gasoline and diesel that meet new global emissions regulations.
Honeywell UOP is introducing an expanded portfolio of new hydrotreating catalysts used to remove impurities and contaminants from petroleum and other refining feedstocks to produce cleaner-burning gasoline and diesel that meets new global emissions regulations.
The requirement for additional sulfur recovery unit capacity in a refinery may stem from hydroprocessing operations; a refinery expansion project; a shift from lighter to heavier, sourer crudes to improve margins; or the need to remove extra sulfur content to meet tighter environmental regulations.
