KBC at Platts European Refining Summit

Our experts will be attending the Platts European Refining Summit on 21 & 22 September in Brussels. We will be giving our view of the impact of the latest bunker fuel specification.

Refining Strategies for IMO 2020 Bunker Fuel Oil Sulphur Reduction: Day 1

Andy Roberts, KBC's Production Optimisation Global Practice Executive, will discuss specific refining strategies to respond to the IMO 2020 marine (bunker) fuel oil sulphur reduction mandate, and illustrate the role of molecular management and process simulation in evaluating those strategies.

The presentation will cover:

  • 'Feedstock Selection' and illustrate the impact of constraints that may arise from switching to a low sulphur crude mix
  • 'Repurposing' process units to focus on meeting a low sulphur fuel oil product specification
  • 'Techno-economic' fuel oil blending strategies and the impact of blending options
  • A marine fuel oil 'Quality Assurance' approach and concept for ship operators


If you are going to the Platts European Refining Summit 2017 we'd love to meet you. Book a meeting to find out how we can help you determine the best option for you to respond to the new regulation.
