Determine feasibility of a gasoline hydrotreater on a tight schedule
C&I developed a feasibility-level cost estimate for a grassroots, 42,000 BPD gasoline hydrotreater utilizing Exxon’s Scanfining technology. C&I provided process engineering and cost estimating with just a three-week turnaround. C&I’s process group developed the naphtha hydrotreater model using HYSYS simulation software.
They also sized major equipment, including distillation columns, vessels, exchangers, heaters, pumps, and compressors, evaluated metallurgy requirements, and prepared a PFD of the process. C&I’s controls department used these equipment sizes, design conditions, metallurgy, and plot area to develop a factored cost estimate using ICARUS estimating software.
