Axens NA selected as tecgnology provider for final process designs at Davis refinery

Meridian Energy Group has selected Axens as the technology provider for the final stages of basic engineering design for its 49,500 BPD Davis refining complex being constructed in Billings County, North Dakota. The project will utilize Axens’ Suite of clean fuels technologies to refine local Bakken tight oil and produce ultra-low sulfur transportation fuels while minimizing energy consumption and environmental footprint. The latest design efforts include Axens’ Octanizing® (CCR reforming) and HyKTM (VGO Hydrocracking) units, respectively, for the production of high- octane gasoline and ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD). These units will complete the previously designed Axens’ Prime-DTM (Diesel hydrotreating), Benfree® (Benzene reduction), and Naphtha Hydrotreating units. Both teams paid special attention to energy efficiency and environmental impacts by optimizing process heat integration and conducting process heater emission reduction studies utilizing Axens’ expertise.

Axens NA, a subsidiary of Axens, is excited to continue its partnership with Meridian Energy Group, as they construct the first new refinery built in the US in over 30 years.

Octanizing, HyK, Prime-D and Benfree are proprietary commercial names of Axens.
