At a Saudi Aramco refinery, a revamp was planned for processing a different crude oil blend to meet Euro 5 diesel and gasoline specifications. The refinery, which processes semi-light crude oil, is scheduled to run a blend of light and medium crude oils in the future to meet clean diesel and gasoline specifications. Simulation models were used to determine the yields and properties of various petroleum fractions from crude and vacuum distillation units (CDUs and VDUs) that meet Euro 5 specifications. The data helped establish the appropriate feedstock characteristics for secondary processing units, such as hydrocracking (HC), hydrotreating (HT) and catalytic reforming (CR) plants. The e
