Crude Oil Management Approach
Improve crude diet flexibility and increase your profits
Crude diet flexibility is one of the primary means of improving a refinery's profitability. The ability to process crudes—from light shale oil to heavy Canadian crudes—opens up a window of opportunity for refiners. However, with increased opportunities comes an array of challenges and risks.
BHGE can help you overcome these concerns with our comprehensive Crude Oil Management™ approach, which includes a suite of tools and technologies that provide the best feedstock preparation and desalting performance possible to maximize your profitability and minimize your risk.
We take a holistic approach to your desalting operations, identifying all potential risks during transportation, storage, and processing. Poor desalting efficiency, uncontrollable emulsions, and other desalting challenges are common when processing lower-priced opportunity crude oils. Proactively gaining insight into the processing challenges of crude blends allows you to confidently increase your feedstock flexibility without compromising reliability.
