Chevron Lummus Global announces clean fuels award in South Korea

Chevron Lummus Global, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract by SK Energy Co., Ltd. for the licensing of its Vacuum Residue Desulfurization (VRDS) technology at the company’s grassroots facility in Ulsan, South Korea. SK will use this technology to produce Low Sulfur Fuel Oil (LSFO) to meet 2020 International Maritime Organization (IMO) clean fuel requirements. This award is part of an ongoing relationship that CLG has with SK Energy Co., Ltd to process heavy residuum refinery streams and follows other similar projects such as VRDS unit 1, and both RDS units 1 and 2, one of which was also revamped for added capacity and flexibility.
CLG’s long association with SK at Ulsan includes these residuum upgrading units, three lubes hydroprocessing plants, a heavy oil hydrotreater and through its exclusive arrangement with Advanced Refining Technologies (ART), the supply of catalysts to multiple hydroprocessing units.
“This award reinforces CLG’s position as a key contributor in the clean fuels and lubricants space,” said Ujjal Mukherjee, CLG’s Managing Director. “This unit will allow the customer to process cheaper residual fuel oil and produce high value products including diesel and naphtha.”
