Fuhaichuang Petrochemical selects Axens H-Oil® to boost the profitability of its assets

Fuhaichuang Petrochemical Co., Ltd, one of the main private Chinese refiner, has selected Axens’ Ebullated-bed residue hydrocracking technology (H-Oil®) for a capacity of 1.5 MTA as the key unit of its residue upgrading plan in its petrochemical complex located in the port of Gulei, Fujian Province, China.   

The project aims at producing Very Low Sulfur Fuel Oil (VLSFO) meeting RMG 380 specification from Vacuum Residue feedstock along with Middle Distillates (naphtha and diesel) that will be further upgraded within the existing assets of the refinery.

Axens scope of work includes the supply of process design package, and full services from plant personnel training to unit start-up.

“The H-Oil® solution proposed by Axens and tailored for Fuhaichuang Petrochemical is unique in a sense that it will allow to cope with challenging targets of VLSFO production, with one single train unit without importing low sulfur cutterstock. The use of specific operating conditions, latest yet industrially proven design, and a new generation of supported catalyst from Shell Catalysts & Technologies are the main contributors for this achievement” Wang Xiaojun, Technical Manager of Refining.

This project demonstrates the competitiveness of Axens to support existing refineries in improving their economic resilience by offering efficient, flexible and sustainable technology solutions” Yu Chunyu, Director of Feed Adaptability and Debottlenecking project.
