Processing lower quality crude oils such as those containing high levels of oil soluble metals, inorganic metal contaminants and tramp amines provide the potential for higher profit margins. Unfortunately the presence of these contaminants can raise the risk and reduce the benefit of processing opportunity crudes. The RESOLV™ contaminate removal programme addresses these challenges and minimizes their impacts.
Both a chemical and an operational solution, RESOLV includes our newest and most innovative technology to effectively remove contaminates such as calcium, iron, mercury and tramp amine species, allowing the refinery to process a wider variety of challenging crude oils.
Our proprietary chemistries remove these troublesome contaminants and are characterized by:
High removal efficiencies
High solubility in water
Minimum impact on the crude distillation unit and the waste water treatment plant
