Digital Exclusive-Flare system design: Liquid pockets in flare headers

In this technical article, written by Saudi Aramco and Siemens Energy, the authors focus on areas where major benefits can be achieved early in the front-end engineering design (FEED) stage of flare header piping designs.

A multi-objective optimization study for an integrated oil refinery-petrochemical plant—Part 1
University of Bahrain, Department of Engineering Management: Al Anazi, K. Q.  |  Shams, M.B.  |  Al Masri, H.

The study of the ideal integration of an oil refinery and an ethylene production facility has regained interest due to the rising costs of crude oil and its derivatives. This study proposes a multi-objective optimization approach that maximizes the net profit and production of ethylene and propylene in an integrated plant.

Connecting the dots to bankability with low-carbon bio-hubs for sustainable fuels and chemicals

The transportation fuel and chemicals sectors are facing multiple urgent challenges. They must quickly reduce their dependence on petroleum resources with cost-competitive solutions while also addressing concerns such as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and decarbonization.

A novel process to help refinery operations comply with the U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard
Sustainable Transportation Fuels: Keller, A.  |  Keller, M.  |  Wallsgrove, C.

The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is a regulation that requires refineries in the U.S. to output a certain percentage of their fuel from renewable sources, such as plants or animal waste. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the minimum proportion of renewable fuel every year. The goal of the RFS is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.

Tackle operational challenges with FCC coprocessing applications

Technip Energies: Golczynski, S.

Refiners are actively developing new solutions to decarbonize their finished products—such as transportation fuels or commodity chemicals—as part of the energy transition. As a result, refiners are now exploring the co-feeding of alternative feedstocks, including renewable and recyclable crude oils, as a means of lowering the carbon footprint of their products.
