The traditional refineries are now upgrading the setup to improve their operations and enhance productivity. They are adapting the modular refinery structure that is very different from other refineries. This refinery has a mounted structure based on crude oil processing. In this refinery, you will see that every structure is an important component and they are also connected. They are easy to install than the conventional refineries, and also take less time for installation.
Modular vacuum distillation units, hydrodesulfurization units, atmospheric distillation units, and catalytic reformers are some important components.
Why the demand is high?
Modular refinery cost is lower than the cost of conventional refineries. So, it is the best option for developing and under-developing countries for increasing their refining capacities. That’s why they are demanding it on a high level and in the future, the demands will increase more. The situation of today is that due to the high demand for refinery products from different countries, the burden on the economy is increasing continuously.
Why countries are investing in Modern refineries?
Most of the countries don’t have a proper supply of refined products that’s why the governments of these countries are investing so much money on the modern refinery. It will increase their power generation capacity. Another reason for investing in modern refineries is that they take less time for installation. This happens because their parts are checked in detail before shipping so when they reach the location, there are hard times when any problem occurs. The location of these refineries can also be changed easily whenever required as they are smaller in size and require low investments to do so.
