Total taps KBR for Antwerp deasphalting unit

Total will use KBR’s proprietary ROSE solvent deasphalting technology in its upgrade of the 338,000-b/d refinery at Antwerp, Belgium (OGJ Online, May 23, 2013).

The ROSE unit, due on stream in early 2016, will split 48,000 b/sd of residue from a mix of crude oils into deasphalted oil and asphaltene.

The deasphalted oil will feed a new mild hycrocracking unit. The aslphaltene will be blended into fuel oil.
