Petroleum processes
  • Atmospheric distillation process

    Separate various hydrocarbon substances contained in
    crude oil on differences in their boiling points.

  • Light End Recovery

    Separates gas components from naphtha, which is distilled in the atmospheric distillation process, to produce propane and butane.

  • LPG Merox process

    Remove sulfur component from LPG produced from the Light End Recovery process to meet product specifications.

  • Naphtha splitter process

    Separate light and heavy naphtha based on differences in boiling points.

  • Kerosene Merox process

    Remove mercaptans, which cause a distinctive odor and have corrosion-causing components in kerosene distilled at the atmospheric distillation process, to meet jet fuel product specifications.

  • Kerosene & Gasoil Hydrotreating process

    Improve quality by removing sulfur from kerosene and diesel distilled at the atmospheric distillation process.
