The naphtha hydrotreater/continuous catalyst regeneration (NHT/CCR) platformer produces reformate to be utilized as a blending stock in the gasoline pool (FIG. 1).
Operations within the hydrocarbon industry involve numerous hazards to be identified, mitigated and maintained at as low a level as reasonably practicable.
