SEPTEMBER 29 - 200

Repsol-YPF has selected Axens to furnish technologies for the expansion of the Cartagena refinery in Murcia, Spain.

The new refining train will include a 50,000 barrel per day hydrocracker to convert a blend of heavy vacuum (HVGO) and heavy coker gas-oils (HCGO) into high quality, ultra low sulfur middle distillates for the strong European market demand. The hydrocracker technology can convert VGOs from conventional, heavy and extra-heavy crudes, deasphalted oil (DAO) or HCGO into high quality middle distillates while affording residue fractions that are suitable as very high VI lube oil base-stocks. By selecting the appropriate catalyst, the process can produce oils ranging from transformer oil to bright stocks.

Axens will also provide a C5-C6 alkane isomerization unit to boost gasoline pool octane, two HDS units to produce ultra-low sulfur diesel from straight run and light coker gas-oil, and a coker naphtha HDS unit.
Start-up is scheduled for last quarter of 2010.
