Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes real-life case studies and exercises where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. This course is designed to provide participants with a complete and up-to-date overview of the hydrocracking and hydrotreating process technology. It covers the hydrocracking and hydrotreating reactions; the feed preparation and hydrocracking process; the hydrocracking catalyst, process variables and hydrocracking yields; the investment and operating costs and modes of hydrocracker operation; the isocracking-hydrocracking for superior fuels and lubes; and the UOP unicracking process for hydrocracking. The course will also discuss the hydrotreating catalysts; the naphtha and distillate hydrotreating and aromatics reduction; the reactions, process variables and construction and operating costs; the Chevron lummus global RDS/VRDS hydrotreating-transportation fuels from the bottom of the barrel; the selective hydrogenation processes, UOP unionfining technology, UOP RCD unionfining technology and UOP catalytic dewaxing process; and the UOP unisar process for saturation of aromatics including Chevron lummus global ebullated bed bottom-of-the-barrel hydroconversion (LC-fining) process. link to course overview PDF
