The Project

  • Project Type: Upgrade
  • Project Summary:
  • The mild hydrocracker will reduce the sulfur content by 99% in approximately 65,000 barrels per day of distillate production from 2,000 parts per million of sulfur to less than 15 parts per million of sulfur, resulting in a reduction of over 6,500 tons per year of sulfur dioxide emissions. In addition, the mild hydrocracker will enable the refinery to process a heavier crude slate while producing a greater volume of clean transportation fuels with an emphasis on increasing distillate production.
