Hashem Sayed Hashem, CEO KPC

Welcome to ResidHydroTreat 2019

The coming few years is offering quite a few challenges to our industry with energy demand, IMO Bunker sulphur cap of 0.5% right around the corner, more stringent emission and growth in chemicals market that require quality feedstocks at cheaper cost.

Here, Residue hydrotreating plays an important role in pretreating of conversion feedstocks from heavier crudes to RFCC, Hydrocracker and Coker units. It reduces catalyst replacement cost, increases conversion units cycle lengths and improves product yield and refinery economics significantly. Residue Hydrotreating dampens the impact of variations in crude quality on down stream conversion units and thus improving the reliability of the complex.

It is emerging as one of the necessities in any Refinery configuration from earlier “good to have” position.

However, Residue processing has unique challenges due to the presence of high CCR, Metals and Asphaltenes. Licensors, Technology providers and Catalyst manufacturers are working diligently to improve the unit and catalyst performance.

ResidHydroTreat2019 in (its second edition) facilitates the largest and unique platform of Licensors, End users, Technology and catalyst Providers to exchange experience, share ideas and success stories.

This year also shines a spotlight on young professional networking.
