3 PROBLEMS OF REFINERY OPERATIONS
THAT REDUCE THE PROFITABILITY OF YOUR BUSINESS
The method of atmospheric distillation gives low-octane gasoline with ON 50-62.
It can be sold at the price of raw materials or ON-improved by additives, but only by 10-15 points. Additionally, the additives themselves are expensive, and the process gives you low-quality gasoline, which does meet Euro-3 standard or higher ones.
Diesel fuel received at downstream refining does not withstand low temperatures. DF gives the main profit to your business, but you cannot sell it in winter. Methods available cannot get rid of paraffins, get a freezing point of -45C° and the filterability temperature of -37C° to meet the required standards.
Existing downstream refining technology converts up to 30% of light oil products into fuel oil, which is considered as losses. When trying to produce winter DT, the losses can reach up to 50%. Thus, you receive fewer goods to put on the market.
YOU ARE BEARING ADDITIONAL LOSSES BECAUSE OF:
with large oil manufacturers, setting high prices for raw materials.
TOUGH TAX LIABILITIES
in the oil-refining field.
for licensing and certification, entailing significant expenditures.
THIS SITUATION ON THE MARKET INFLICTS NEGATIVE EFFECT TO ANY BUSINESS BE IT A PRIVATE OIL REFINERY, A FUEL BASE OR A NETWORK OF WHOLESALE-RETAIL SALE MFS. EVERYONE HAS A COMMON TROUBLE, WHICH IS THE PROFITABILITY REDUCTION IMPOSSIBLE TO WITHSTAND IN CASE OF CONTINUING TO OPERATE USING CLASSICAL OIL REFINING TECHNOLOGY.
