Fluid catalytic cracking revamp

From conceptual design to turnkey delivery, our services cover the entire value chain for refining projects and integrated petrochemical complexes. We have a strong track record in refinery optimization projects and the technological skills needed for any refining development. 

Some of our key references include the BLADE refinery project in the USA, the conversion of La Mède refinery in biorefinery in France, the Jubail refinery in Saudi Arabia, the expansion of Burgas, the largest refinery in the Balkans, the RAPID integrated refinery and petrochemical complex in Malaysia, and BAPCO refinery major expansion project in Bahrain. 

We can partner with you early on, during the planning and investment phases, to look for ways to optimize all aspects of your facility. We will handle master planning and configuration screening, perform block optimization, define utilities and offsites concepts, manage investment cost estimates, and conduct profitability and financial analyses.  

We help our clients define profitable solutions in terms of performance, energy efficiency, operational savings, safety improvements and ease of maintenance. We offer our expertise to support our customers throughout their energy transition journey.  

The bottom of the barrel conversion, increased integration of refining and petrochemicals, and transition to a low-carbon economy are three strategic trends driving the refining industry today for which we offer significant experience, technological skills, solid project development and delivery references.  

We’re also by your side when it comes to selecting the best technologies to meet your specific needs. This includes the integration with petrochemicals due to our experience as a leading licensor of ethylene and petrochemical technologies. 

We offer our clients a tailored portfolio of services for improved plant performance and energy efficiency such as profit improvement programs, energy efficiency studies, hydrogen and flare networks or HSE-related services for environmental and safety performance.
