Crude cracking is the major route to olefins production and is vital to the profitability of petrochemical operations. Recent swings in markets have renewed interest in both gas cracking and liquids cracking. This program has been developed to provide an in-depth, and practical review of steam cracking and olefins technology. Feed flexibility, smooth operation, capacity and product quality are critically important goals that can be difficult to achieve. Many complex process, equipment, and reliability issues have to be balanced to optimize run-length, capacity, and quality. With the many variables involved, constant adjustments are required.
The program’s content is both comprehensive and wide-ranging. Sessions begin with a discussion of olefins processes, including process objectives, feed characterization, products, process flow sequences, cold-ends equipment, hot-ends equipment and auxiliary systems. Special emphasis is placed on areas of high current interest in the industry. Attendees will gain an understanding of how process requirements, equipment operation, and economic objectives interact. Once the fundamentals are established, the session moves into the topics of operation, control, troubleshooting and revamps.
Who Should Attend:
Program participants will have ample opportunity to obtain a broad working knowledge of steam cracking operations, to gain insight into current technology and trends, and to interact with others working in this area. The program is ideal for personnel involved in petrochemical process engineering, plant operations, troubleshooting, and technical services. Process engineers from design and construction companies as well as those providing services to the steam cracking industry should also find this program beneficial.
