Total to build two units at Lindsey refinery

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 10 -- Total SA has begun construction of a hydrodesulfurization unit and a hydrogen production unit at its 221,286 b/cd Lindsey refinery, near Immingham in the UK.

The HDS unit will have a 1 million tonne/year capacity. The hydrogen production unit—more specifically a steam methane reformer—is key to the desulfurization process.

The two units together represent a €300 million investment. Commissioning is scheduled for 2009, Total said.

The units will increase Total's production of ultralow-sulfur diesel and will increase the refinery's capacity to process less-expensive sour crudes.
