FLEXICOKING™ technology is a commercially proven, cost-effective, fluidized bed process that thermally converts heavy oils to lighter products and flexigas. “Coking without the Coke.” Low-cost feeds such as deep-cut vacuum resid; atmospheric resid; oil sands bitumen; heavy whole crudes; and DAU, FCC, and ebullated-bed bottoms are converted to high-value products. FLEXICOKING technology with integrated steam/air gasification offers greater flexibility than conventional Delayed Coking, and does it economically. The FLEXICOKING technology not only produces clean liquids of equivalent quantities and similar quality to Delayed Coking, but also gasifies the low-value coke to produce a clean, highvalue flexigas that can be used in place of natural gas and conventional fuel gas in refinery processes. Flexigas can also be used to generate electric power and to produce H2, N2, and CO2.
