Current market conditions are forcing many refiners into an unfamiliar operating state. A different approach may be required to rebalance and reduce refinery intake and maximize products that are still in demand. Unit and equipment specific impacts of this approach will depend on the severity of the rate reduction as well as the duration.

Becht has additionally developed a Knowledge Library with high risk, high impact considerations by process unit (e.g. Crude) and major equipment type (e.g. Fired Heaters) for turndown, shutdown and long term idle operations. You can download a free example of the Fired Equipment by clicking below. The Knowledge Library provides a framework for a discussion around high risk, high impact concerns, symptoms and consequence(s) stemming from this operational mode that most plants haven’t been in since the 1980s.
