Bottom of the Barrel Refinery — Non-licenced Unit Engineering

In overall support of the concept for a new refinery in the northern Arabian Gulf, GSAe took part in the Basic Engineering for ’non-licensed’ units. Because of our specialism in recovering catalysts from hydrocarbons for recycle we also developed a system to improve the environmental credentials for a novel slurry catalyst technology called Heavy Residue Hydroconversion unit (HRH). This technology upgrades the crude feed oil with what would be a sacrificial catalyst without GSAe’s expertise.

Through our support of the project, we carried out the Basic Engineering Design for the following units directly for the development company:

    • Crude & Vacuum Distillation Units

    • HP & LP Amine Treater Units

    • Naphtha Stabiliser Unit

    • LPG Unit

    • SOX Removal

With deliverables including:

    • Hysys Modelling

    • Process Specifications

    • HSE Specifications

    • Hazop

The BEP provided the basic design for the project and will include project management together with full process, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation, civil and safety designs. A Class III project programme and cost estimate will be generated along with a full set of procurement documentation. The BEP also includes engineering design for all construction and installation activities that includes both insites and offsites plant facilities and outside. The BEP leads the project into the detailed design and procurement phases.
