ROSE® Technology Webinar

02 Jun 2021


About the Topic

Refiners are facing significant challenges including a historic reduction in fuels demand and the early impact of IMO 2020 regulations. However, long-term forecasts show a growth in fuels demand through 2050, an increase in refining petrochemical integration, regional demand for lube products, and a drive to reduce carbon intensity. Refiners are able to meet these challenges and increase their refining margins by integrating KBR’s Supercritical Solvent De-Asphalting technology, ROSE®, with existing refinery assets in bottom-of-the-barrel (BoB) configurations.

During this webinar, KBR will highlight:

  • Versatility of ROSE® in BoB configurations including integration with FCC, Hydroprocessing, Lube Oil Processing, and Delayed Coking
  • Leveraging KBR’s experience to assess configurations that would be profitable to the refinery
  • Implementing ROSE® technology in existing conventional SDA units to improve margins, minimize OPEX, and reduce carbon footprint

KBR’s ROSE® process offers:

  • Industry-Leading Experience: Over 40 years of experience and expertise with nearly 70 ROSE® licenses and a combined licensed capacity of over 1.6 million BPSD
  • Cost-Effective Investments: Attractive investment opportunities with typical payback periods less than three years
  • Flexible Solutions: Ability to respond to market developments in fuel, lube, asphalt, and petrochemical applications
