The seminar, which was also conducted in Russian, brought together more than 70 participants. This great attendance highlights the significant need for information, idea exchange and networking among the stakeholders in the region. To this effect, one of the objectives was to present the entire Axens offer concerning the conversion of residue, as well as the technologies required to obtain the finished products based on Russian market specifications.
A highly anticipated event
This half-day seminar focusing on the bottom-of-the-barrel theme was in line with news from the zone on the latest Russian legislation that strongly encourages the use of conversion units.
Main innovation this year: Presentation of the new Axens offer, H-Oil® Suite, which provides further capabilities in terms of residue conversion. The presentation featured many specific case studies.
Axens’ solutions for hydrotreatment (Prime-D™ ), for treating increasingly resistant gasoil and for meeting strict specifications, e.g., in terms of cold flow properties, or density reduction and improvement of cetane were also presented and discussed.
There were many questions asked during the event, which is a testament to the Russian refiners’ keen interest in residue conversion technologies and services.
A place for exchanging ideas and networking
The seminar began with a welcome luncheon and a coffee break was slotted in the afternoon to provide participants with the opportunity for a break and interactions.
The 2016 edition of the seminar has once again proven to be an important meeting between Axens and operators/refiners in the zone, with regard to bottom-of-the-barrel valorization.
