Bosnia and Herzegovina refinery due upgrade

Rafinerija Nafte Brod, operator of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s only refinery, will use technologies from Honeywell’s UOP LLC and ExxonMobil Research & Engineering Co. (EMRE) in an upgrade of its 240,000 b/d facility at Brod.

The licensing agreement is the first under an alliance formed by UOP and EMRE last year.

The refiner will combine UOP Unicracking technology with EMRE’s distillate and lubricant dewaxing technologies to increase fuel and lube yields.

The new complex will upgrade more than 45,000 b/sd of kerosene, diesel, and vacuum gas oil into high-quality diesel and jet fuels. It also will produce high-quality base oils to be used for production of lubricants at Refineria Ulia Modricha, which is under construction and scheduled to start up in 2016.
