Introduction

This comprehensive Hydrotreating & Hydrocracking Process Technology training seminar overlays the process fundamentals and sound knowledge of Hydrotreating and Hydrocracking processes where Hydrogen is a key material in the upgrading and treatment of refinery products and fractions. A review of the state-of-the-art in process design, energy and mass integration will be presented as potential key improvements.

In-depth practical review of Hydrotreating/cracking technologies is provided across the training seminar topics. The contents focus on the Hydro-conversion of heavy products, distillates, diesel, and naphtha into other hydrogenated/lower molecular weight products, besides saturated products with enhanced Cetane number, free of sulfur, nitrogen and metals. The training seminar also discusses some process design/chemistry and engineering principles for such processes and presents scope for improvements.

This training seminar is valuable to engineers/scientists, designers and researchers involved in the industry of Hydro-conversion in refiners. Yet it is most beneficial to those professionals with experiences in other fields and willing to acquire knowledge in Hydro-conversion processes.

This training seminar will feature:

  • Lectures, exercises and team work in some areas of process design and improvement
  • Real studies that exhibit improvement solution for energy/environment
  • Knowledge transfer of instructor’s extensive engaged industrial consultations
  • Practice of Excel-based design tools for mass/energy integration in refining plants
  • Open discussion on actual problems/data for design and improvements

Objectives

By the end of this training seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Develop deep understanding of mass/H2/energy balance in refining processes
  • Gain in-depth knowledge of the state-of-the-art of material and energy integration
  • Evaluate different flow schemes for hydrotreating and hydrocracking processes
  • Manipulated process design and operation variables for better H2-conversion performances
  • Master experiences of chemistry/kinetics, function of catalysts, clean production, environmental issues of very typical upgraded fuel productions

Training Methodology

This training seminar will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes training seminar materials, proposed reading/state-of-the-art of the training seminar content, lecture talks, exercises, team works and discussions, and solved applications. The nature of the training will be interactive and a practice of how to think, not what to think will be mastered. The philosophy of the training seminar delivery will be:

  • Development of a deep understanding of the-state-of-the-art of all contents and topics
  • Analysis and improvement of some case studies with respect to economics and environment
  • Practices in process design/simulation of specific applications based on Excel or commercial packages if available

Who Should Attend?

The training seminar is of great significance to process/operational engineers, technicians, control engineers, designers, scientists and researchers working closely in the refining industry in general or particularly Hydrocracking, Hydrotreating processes. It is also substantially beneficial to other professionals and experts who have considerable experiences in other fields of business and keen to gain a sufficient knowledge in the particular industry of Hydro-conversion. All levels of professionalism are eligible for the training seminar, ranging from young-fresh personnel to highly experienced ones. 

This training seminar is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Process and Development Engineers
  • Plant Managers
  • Operational Engineers/Control Personnel
  • Researchers/Scientists
  • Project and Design Engineers
