When people hear the word “innovation” they rarely associate this word with the refining industry. Refining companies are generally known for being conservative and their reputation is somewhat expected. After all, refining has been around well over 100 years and innovation is often associated with newer industries and companies. However, to profitably compete in today’s market of ever changing crude oil qualities and environmental, safety and profitability challenges, refiners must be innovative and flexible. This presentation will discuss several ways that refiners are using novel and creative ideas to deploy proven and emerging technologies to address their challenges.
