ROSE – Cost-effective and versatile solutions to improve refinery economics

Presented By

Aamir Laasi - KBR

Conference: RefComm 2021

Refiners are facing significant challenges including a historic reduction in fuels demand and the early impact of IMO 2020 regulations. However, long-term forecasts show a growth in fuels demand through 2050, an increase in refining petrochemical integration, and a drive to reduce carbon intensity. Enhancing BoB operations through KBR’s Solvent De-Asphalting technology, ROSE®, is a cost-effective and versatile way to address these challenges.

During this presentation, you will learn about:

  • Increasing refinery margins by processing De-asphalted Oil from the ROSE® unit in downstream conversion units
  • Identifying outlets for asphaltene from the ROSE® unit including:
    • Processing in downstream refinery units
    • Solidification
    • Steam and electricity generation
    • Gasification
    • Asphalt or Road Bitumen
