Lukoil to install the 200th Axens’ Prime-G+ Unit  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Lukoil Co. (www.lukoil.com) has selected Axens (Rueil-Malmaison, France; www.axens.net)  to provide the technology license for a new Prime-G+TM unit to desulfurize FCC (fluid catalytic cracking) gasoline at its Kstovo petroleum refinery in the Nizhny Novgorod region, Russia. The unit, which has been designed to treat more than 1.1-million ton/yr of cracked gasoline, will produce a high-octane stream resulting in refinery gasoline pool sulfur levels as low as 10 ppm. This unit, which is the 200th Axens’ Prime-G+ unit licensed worldwide, is a further landmark in the company’s rich history. Since the first Prime-G+ unit was put into operation in Mid-2001, Axens has been awarded licenses amounting to a capacity of over 190 million ton/yr, establishing Prime-G+ as the world’s benchmark gasoline desulfurization technology. Flexible and reliable process schemes are designed depending on the feedstock, site-specific constraints and refinery objectives.  To date, 140 units have been successfully started-up. The vast majority of these units satisfy the EURO V specification in the gasoline pool.
