The FCCU Heartburn Panel features industry experts from refining companies and technology providers who respond to questions and engage attendees in a discussion of today’s tough CatCracker issues. No more migraines and sleepless nights after you get your questions answered. To keep this informal, panelists do not prepare answers in advance, but respond to attendee questions about current issues. Fluid Catalytic Cracking topics can cover operations, process, design, maintenance and turnaround.
We can start with these questions:
– What to do when the gasoline pool is long?
– What happens to FCC when the light feeds hit? Refiners are expanding in the Gulf Coast to just run West Texas Crude.
– How do you handle the lack of unit specific qualified operators to operate these proposed increased capacity refineries let alone the existing refineries?
