KBR to supply ROSE Technology for Total’s Antwerp refinery

Gerald Ondrey

KBR (Houston; www.kbr.com) today announced that it has been selected by Total to utilize KBR’s ROSE solvent deasphalting technology for use at their Antwerp petroleum refinery in Belgium.

The ROSE unit is expected to significantly enhance the profitability of the refinery and is expected to come on stream in early 2016.

The ROSE technology will split 48,000 barrels-per-stream-day of residue from a mix of crude oils into deasphalted oil (DAO) and asphaltene. The DAO will be upgraded in a mild hydrocracking unit and the asphaltene will be blended into fuel oil.
