Thai refinery to use Axens reforming technology

February 23/2016

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Axens announced today that Bangchak Petroleum will use Axens state-of-the-art reforming technology and catalysts for its energy, efficiency and environment improvement project in Bangkok, Thailand, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The project consists of a grassroots Octanizing unit (CCR reforming unit for gasoline production) with a design capacity of about 12,000 bpd to produce high-quality reformate, a blend component for high-octane gasoline.

The relationship between the refinery and Axens started more than 30 years ago, with a semi-regenerative reforming unit, hydrotreating unit for gasoline and diesel, and more.

More recently, it has continued with projects linked to the production of clean fuels and impurities removal.

For this specific project, detailed studies conducted by an independent party demonstrated that Axens technology solution was the most economically-attractive option for a given reformate RON target. This was a key element for the Bangchak Petroleum and for the viability of the project.

In addition, Axens said its reputation for clean fuel projects was also an important factor in the final decision for this refinery located close to the city. Because of that, creating an environmentally-friendly energy business is essential, officials said.

As MRC informed earlier, Malaysia's national oil and gas company Petronas selected Axens as a technology provider for its refinery and petrochemicals integrated development (RAPID) project in Pengerang, Johor.
