CAPEXUSD 58 Million
To design a single train crude oil topping unit with an overall initial capacity of 10,000 BPSD. The plant includes an Atmospheric Distillation Unit (ADU) and a Vacuum Distillation Unit (VDU) with their accumulative distillation units such as strippers for the products and the pre-heat trains with the relevant heat integration systems. The plant shall process heavy crude from the Northern Iraq to produce basic products like Gas (C1 to C4), Naphtha, Kerosene, Atmospheric Gas Oil (AGO), Atmospheric Residue (AR), Heavy Gas Oil, Light Vacuum Gas Oil (LVGO), Heavy Vacuum Gas Oil (HVGO) and Vacuum Residue (VR).
The Sulaymaniyah Refinery project involved the conceptual design and FEED to design the ADU, VDU along with its associated systems and to optimize the heat integration system used for pre-heating the fractionation units.
The project features
- Conceptual study and FEED for Grass-root crude topping plant
- Processing capacity of 10,000 BPD heavy crude oil
- Optimization of the heat integration train
- Two primary columns systems, supported by two fired heaters, six side strippers and 30 heat exchangers
Tank farms and storage facilities
- Utilities generation
