  • Celebrating a century of innovation in the oil & gas industry

    UOP celebrates its 100th year in business in 2014, and in many ways our history is analogous to the development of the world’s oil and gas industry. We have accomplished many great things during the last century. For that, we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to our customers, who helped us develop and commercialize our technologies. When our company was founded, there were fewer than 2 billion people in the world, and travel was dominated by horses and steam engines. ...

  • Commitment to high indsutrial performance

    The Krasnodar company SIE Neftehim, LLC is No. 1 in Russia in the field of catalytic processing of light naphtha for production of motor gasoline of ecological class K5/Euro-5 and high-purity chemical synthesis raw materials. It is the largest developer and manufacturer of isomerization and reforming catalysts in this country. In addition, Scientific Industrial Enterprise Neftehim is the creator of the well known and up-to-date isomerization technology of pentane-hexane fractions ...

  • Customized grading solutions for your feedstock

    Match your catalyst grading to your feedstock for minimum pressure drop build-up and maximum demetallization. As today’s opportunity crudes and heavier feedstocks become more economically viable, the oil fractions you refine are posing new challenges. Creating the optimal grading solution for your individual feedstock is essential to minimize pressure drop build-up, increase metals pick-up, and reduce downtime and catalyst replacement. An overlooked advantage The importance ...

  • Faster lead time for emergency catalyst delivery

    An incident caused irreversible poisoning of a catalyst bed in a hydroprocessing unit. The incentive for immediate catalyst replacement was $400,000 per month, and the quoted lead time was unacceptably long.  The refiner used our network to identify two feasible alternatives for faster delivery.  The outcome was 2 months faster lead time and $800,000 margin saved. Improved refinery lab accuracy:  Refinery lab analyses of FCC gasoline and reformate were incorrectly ...
