Chevron Lummus Global LLC (CLG) on Friday (16 August) said it will be providing a refining technology license to Compania Espanola de Petroleos (CEPSA) to upgrade its Algeciras Refinery in Spain.
CLG, a joint venture between Chevron U.S.A. Inc. and McDermott, has completed the design of the unit employing its proprietary LC-FINING and ISOTREATING technologies. The scope of work also includes the supply of catalysts, proprietary equipment, and engineering.
The firm’s LC-FINING technology process provides high conversion of residues selectively to liquid products with superior performance and reliability. ISOTREATING technology employs state-of-the-art hydrotreating catalyst to produce high-quality products with long run lengths and minimal by-product formation.
With an innovative process design integrating 36,700 BPSD of LC-FINING technology with 27,600 BPSD of ISOTREATING technology, the efficient unit will strengthen CEPSA’s position as a major provider of marine diesel and bunker fuel oil, it notes.
“This award further demonstrates CLG’s technology leadership in complete bottom of the barrel solutions to meet future International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations,” said Ujjal Mukherjee, Managing Director of CLG.
Earlier in August, CLG provide a Vacuum Residue Desulfurization (VRDS) technology license to SK Energy for use on its facility in Ulsan, South Korea.
