Energy Efficiency improvement of naphtha cracker

Client: Sabic (The Netherlands)

Objective: Energy Efficiency Improvement Study

Scope of work: As a part of the capacity increase project, our client would like to investigate the opportunities for energy efficiency improvement of their existing plant. In order to investigate this the following tasks have been completed: energy-saving study for a section of naphtha cracker, including detailed energy analysis, determining minimum energy targets of the process, identifying energy saving opportunities, concept development for retrofit of the existing heat exchanger network, utility network analysis and improvement. The results of the study led to 10% of energy efficiency improvements of the expanded plant section.
