Overview of the Shell refining technology portfolio
Refiners are facing a dynamic business environment. Crude prices are volatile. Heavy, high-sulphur and acidic opportunity crudes are increasingly available.
Demand for lighter products is high; product legislation and emissions standards are tightening; and health, safety and environment mandates also have to be met.
Cutting-edge licensed technologies are being leveraged to introduce new hardware into refineries. These technologies can help refiners to raise capacities, take advantage of opportunity crudes and meet stringent specifications.
Shell Global Solutions licenses a wide range of industry-leading technologies across all refinery processes.
Today’s business climate poses significant challenges for refiners. Refiners are challenged to meet growing energy demand as well as upgrade crudes to meet stringent environmental regulations.
