Process Technologies for Oil to Chemicals

Petrochemical plant operators are seeing new capacity expected to come into the market in the near future.  To position operators to thrive in this environment, Shell Catalysts & Technologies is leveraging refinery-petrochemical integration to increase operational and economic gains.

Using refinery technology in petrochemical operations allows for the optimisation of catalyst processing and energy savings due to this feedstock cycle, effectively improving return on investment. Petrochemicals facilities can transform gas and liquid hydrocarbons to a wider range of petrochemical products. Feedstocks used to produce these chemicals (like LPG, naphtha, and gasoil) are often from refineries. Additionally, byproducts from petrochemical throughput like C4s, pygas, pyoil, and hydrogen are feedstocks required by refineries.
