Sinopec’s Crude Oil Scheduling and Blending Technology Reaches International Advanced LevelRecently, the whole package technology of oil refinery

 

Recently, the whole package technology of oil refinery enterprises for crude oil scheduling and blending jointly developed by SINOPEC Research Institute of Petroleum Processing and SINOPEC Zhenhai Refinery & Chemical Company passed technical evaluation by Sinopec. Expert panel arrived at the same conclusion that this technology possesses multiple innovations, reaches international advanced level and produces significant economic effects.

 

Crude oil scheduling and blending is the core for modern oil refinery enterprises. Due to the high flexibility of processing crude oil, numerous types, plus the problems like scattered distribution of resources in tank farm, limited volume of tanks, non-uniformity of arriving time and quantity of crude oil to the port, weakness in storage and transportation capacity, low automation level, etc, it has resulted in improper mixing proportion of crude oils actually processed in crude distillation unit and vacuum distillation unit, inconstant properties of feedstock etc., so that it can hardly make a full use of crude oil resources delivered to the factory.  It is in a desperate need that we come up with the crude oil scheduling and blending technology that fits the features of Sinopec refinery enterprises. Under the circumstance of transformation of the mode of development and structural adjustment, the SINOPEC Group decides to employ domestic technology to enhance the tech level of storage and blending step and deep integration of information technology and analysis technology. In the process of technology development and application, SINOPEC Research Institute of Petroleum Processing and SINOPEC Zhenhai Refinery & Chemical Company act in close coordination., SINOPEC Research Institute of Petroleum Processing is involved in the process of hardware infrastructure construction and SINOPEC Zhenhai Refinery & Chemical Company proposes a number of rational suggestions in the process of the software going into service, which play an important role in the enlargement and extension for package technology.

 

This technology combines computer technology and analysis technology, solving problems like an over-dependence on labor for scheduling of production plan in oil refinery enterprises, uncertainty of the type and properties of crude oils in tank farm and inside the long-distance transport pipelines, over-long cycle of analyzing the properties of crude oil, inconstant feedstock properties of atmospheric and vacuum distillation units, etc.
