Producing synthetic crude oil from heavy oils: Process heat integration

Jorge Ancheyta, Jose A.D. Munoz, Ignacio Elizalde

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The development of process heat integration in a heavy crude oil hydrotreating plant is presented. To choose the best case from an energetic point of view, experimental data obtained from pilot plant studies, simulations with commercial software, and Pinch analysis are used. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Spring National Meeting (Orlando, FL 4/24-26/2006).
