KBR to license ROSE technology to Shell refinery.

2016-04-14

Royal Dutch Shell will license a ROSE® (Residuum Oil Supercritical Extraction) solvent deasphalting (SDA) unit for installation at its 404K-b/d Pernis refinery in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. This particular ROSE unit will process residue from a mix of crudes into DAO and asphalt. While the ROSE unit will not increase the overall capacity at Pernis, it will allow the plant to reduce its production of lower quality heavy products while increasing its production of high-quality light products. KBR said construction on the unit is set to commence in 2017 with startup slated for the following year. (Jan 26)
