Refinery-Petchem Integration Webinar

Event Dates:
05 May 2021

Event Location:

KBR invites you to a 45-minute webinar on Refinery-Petchem Integration: Adapting for the Future.

About the Topic

The refining industry is adapting to change as demand for fuels is expected to decline while demand for petrochemicals continues to increase. To remain viable, refiners will have to repurpose existing assets, extract greater value from intermediates, and pivot towards petrochemicals production.

KBR has a broad portfolio of integration technologies including MAXOFIN™ maximum olefins FCC, SCORE™ steam cracking, K-COT™ catalytic olefins technology, K-PRO™ propane dehydrogenation, ROSE® solvent deasphalting and solutions for pitch processing (AiMS™, AiGSSM), VCC™ slurry hydrocracking, and AED-BTX aromatics extraction. All these technologies are enablers to shift from fuels to petrochemicals production.

During this webinar, KBR will highlight: 

  • Why refiners should explore refinery-petrochemical integration
  • KBR’s full suite of integration technologies
  • Phased investment strategies & maximizing use of existing assets
  • Practical solutions for different refinery configurations
