Cepsa selects Chevron Lummus technologies for Algeciras Refinery in Spain

By Mary Page Bailey |

Chevron Lummus Global LLC (CLG), a joint venture between Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (Richmond, Calif.; www.chevron.com) and McDermott, Inc. (Houston; www.mcdermott.com) announced its selection by Compañía Española de Petróleos (CEPSA) to provide licensed technology for its Algeciras Refinery in Spain. CLG has completed the design of the unit employing its proprietary LC-FINING and Isotreating technologies. The scope of work also includes the supply of catalysts, proprietary equipment, and engineering.
 
With an innovative process design integrating 36,700 bbl/d of LC-FINING technology with 27,600 bbl/d of Isotreating technology, the efficient unit will strengthen CEPSA’s position as a major provider of marine diesel and bunker fuel oil, says CLG.
 
“This award further demonstrates CLG’s technology leadership in complete bottom of the barrel solutions to meet future International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations,” said Ujjal Mukherjee, Managing Director of CLG.
 
CLG’s LC-FINING technology process provides high conversion of residues selectively to liquid products with superior performance and reliability. Isotreating technology employs a hydrotreating catalyst to produce high-quality products with long run lengths and minimal by-product formation.
