As a major licensor for clean fuel production, Axens has been selected for the modernization project of the Heydar Aliyev Oil Refinery that will enable the refinery, located at Baku, to increase its annual processing capacity, from 6.0 to 7.5 Mtpa (million tons per annum), and produce high-quality Euro 5 fuels. This project is today one of the most important projects of SOCAR at a downstream stage.

As part of the project, Axens is providing the following technologies:

  • Prime-G+™, gasoline desulfurization unit for a design capacity of 1.2 Mtpa
  • Prime-D™, diesel hydrotreater unit for a design capacity of 3.0 Mtpa

Axens is recognized by SOCAR as a key technology provider for clean fuel technologies since Axens was involved in the STAR refinery project in Turkey, supplying the naphtha, kerosene and diesel hydrotreating processes.
