Aramco, ExxonMobil tap Axens for ultra-low sulfur control at SAMREF refinery
Updated: 2015-12-15 08:45 Source: Market Report Company share:

SAMREF (Saudi Aramco Mobil Refining Co.) has selected Axens to evaluate, develop and implement an advanced process control (APC) system for their Prime-G+ unit for the desulfurization of the FCC gasoline to ultra-low sulfur content, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The objective of the APC solution is to achieve substantial economic benefit by providing extremely precise control of product sulfur content while minimizing octane loss and reducing consumption of hydrogen and utilities.

This project has been managed by Axens’ APC experts in close collaboration with SAMREF engineers.

Axens’ experience in APC developments combined with their unique insight as a process licensor has enabled a rapid implementation of a turnkey solution with substantial quantifiable results, the company says.

The company's success relies on a proven methodology, tailored control strategy and inferential modules based on catalytic reaction kinetics, resulting in a robust and easy-to-maintain process control solution, Axens says.

While ensuring the tight low sulfur specification in the product, the APC application is generating a benefit of up to USD5.66 million per year, according to the company.

Indonesia's state-owned PT Pertamina and Saudi Aramco, the state-owned oil company of Saudi Arabia, have signed a Heads of Agreement (HoA) to formalize key business principles for joint ownership, operation and upgrade of the Cilacap Refinery located in Central Java, Indonesia as part of Pertamina’s Refinery Development Master Plan (RDMP).

Saudi Aramco, officially the Saudi Arabian Oil Company, is a Saudi Arabian national oil and natural gas company based in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Saudi Aramco's value has been estimated at up to USD10 trillion in the Financial Times, making it the world's most valuable company. Saudi Aramco has both the largest proven crude oil reserves, at more than 260 billion barrels, and largest daily oil production.
