Capacity: 3,000 MTPD ( Synthesis gas)It is designed to consume 59 mt/hr (1,400 mt/day) of heavy residues to produce 130 mt/hr of clean syngas, consisting primarily of CO and H2. The facility is slightly over-designed (6%) to accommodate crude oils other than the standard Arab Heavy. The Claus sections are 36% over-designed to accommodate Basrah Medium high-sulfur feedstocks. The grey water treatment system is 58% overdesigned to accommodate Iranian Heavy feedstocks.
Technology:This plant converts heavy refinery residues into clean syngas utilizing licensed technology from Texaco (GE Gasification), ABB, UOP, Parson (Claus units), and Praxair. This facility was running at the time of inspection and is expected to shut down at the end of this year (2012). The 300-MW turbine generator (not for sale) will then be converted to run on natural gas instead of syngas.AccessThe site has good rail and truck access. It is located directly on the ocean and has its own harbor for crude oil unloading and finished product loading. Equipment removed from this facility can be loaded directly on barges at the facility shoreline, since this is how the equipment was delivered.
Spare parts for this facility are abundant and include gasifier internals, complete exchangers, compressor internals, compressor motors up to 25 MW, a Claus unit, and some distillation tower internals. No value was given for the spare parts inventory.
Process control is by ABB Advant DCS and is available with the sale of the plant.
Documentation is excellent in both paper and electronic formats. All types of documentation were reviewed and found acceptable during the inspection. We have been given electronic copies of PFDs, major equipment data sheets, major equipment manufacturers’ drawings, mass balances, detailed equipment lists, plot plans, process descriptions, and historical production data.
