I have seen refiners cutting back crude intake when major secondary processing units like HCU or FCC or Coker goes for TA. We do store HCGO with suitable addition of anti-oxidants so that there is no gum formation during storage. I am aware of sale of VGO fractions in international market. Perhaps buyers can accept HCGO in such blends within fixed Bromine number. Other alt could be making bitumen out of Coker feed with corresponding cut back on Coker thru put inter-alia HCGO make. Other options for HCGO will be to produce bunker fuel or use HCGO as fertilizer feed stock. Best of luck in managing HCGO.
