State-owned Ecopetrol SA will use Axens technologies for the new hydrocracking and coker naphtha hydrotreating units to be installed in the upgrade and expansion of its 250,000-b/sd Barrancabermeja refinery in Colombia.

The hydrocracker will be able to process 80,000 b/d of a blend of straight-run vacuum gas oil and cracked gas oil. The coker naphtha hydrotreater will have capacity of 14,000 b/d.

The refinery’s crude capacity will increase to 300,000 b/d (OGJ Online, Aug. 9, 2011).
