Rompetrol Rafinare boosts up efficiency by optimization of delayed coking plant
Rompetrol Rafinare has announced the completion of its delayed coking plant optimization. The USD 1,4-million investment significantly improves efficiency of operations by increasing the degree of crude oil processing.
The project involves installation of a new light gas oil recovery system at the fractionation column within the delayed coking plant. The implementation of the new technology will optimize the thermal profile on the column, which will enhance recovery of light gas oil at the same quality by reducing the amount of heavy gas oil.
Rompetrol Rafinare management expressed their satisfaction with the successful project as it will help fulfil their objectives to increase efficiency, reduce costs, optimize operational flows, but also modernize and align with the state-of-the-art crude oil processing solutions. The initiative meant to bring more efficiency is part of the company’s large projects to reduce the impact on the environment and transfer business to digitalization.
