KP Engineering provided process consulting services to a Mid-Continent Refiner. The refiner was experiencing problems with the wash oil section on their Vacuum Distillation Unit (VDU). KPE refinery process experts provided several recommendations for wash oil system improvement. KPE’s recommendations included specific guidance in regard to packing, distribution nozzles, wash oil control devices and instrumentation, and other process related issues.
KP Engineering will provide process engineering services to a Mid-Continent Refiner as part of a Crude and Vacuum Distillation Unit study. The refinery needs to balance crude throughput and crude slate flexibility, while assessing the impact on downstream processing units. The feasibility study is expected to take one to two months to complete and will be performed by KPE crude distillation and fractionation experts.

KP Engineering will provide process engineering services to identify needed improvements to a NGL Fractionation Unit for a U.S. Gas Processor. The engineering study work will identify pinch points and required modifications to achieve future capacity objectives. The Phase 1 work is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2016.
KP Engineering will provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for a Naphtha Hydrotreater Revamp Project for a Mid-continent refiner. The FEED package will identify needed improvements to the hydrotreating unit to facilitate a 50% increase in capacity. The modifications are prompted by the Owner’s desire to increase the refinery crude charge rate, process a lighter crude slate, and provide hydrotreating capability for other light distillate streams. The engineering work is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2016.
