Apart from the crude and vacuum units, the major secondary processing plants included the hydrocracker unit, naphtha hydrotreating and catalytic reforming units and visbreker unit for resid upgradation. The products turned out would be comforming to Bharat stage II and Euro III equivalent specifications, Mr. Narasimhan said.
Explaining the process involved, R. Anand, DGM (projects), said the hydrocracker unit had been designed to process vacuum distillates both from the existing and expansion refineries and the unconverted oil from the hydrockracker would be routed as feed to the existing secondary processing unit, namely fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU). This would improve both the yield and quality of products from the FCCU and reduce environmental emissions, he said.
According to R. Sankaran, director (technical), the process units in the expansion projects had been designed to process a wide range of low sulphur and high sulphur crudes.
