Rafinerija Nafte Brod Selects Technology From Honeywell’s UOP And ExxonMobil Research And Engineering Company To Improve Quality Of Refined Lubricants And Fuels

UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE: HON) company, and ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company (EMRE) announced today that Rafinerija Nafte Brod, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s sole oil refinery, has selected UOP and EMRE technology to improve the quality of refined lubricants and fuels.

The licensing agreement is the first under a joint licensing alliance formed by Honeywell UOP and EMRE last year.

The new technology will allow Rafinerija Nafte Brod to improve its product quality and environmental performance. The refiner will combine Honeywell UOP Unicracking™ hydroprocessing solutions with EMRE’s distillate and lubricant de-waxing technologies to produce ultra-clean jet and diesel fuels and high-quality lubricant base stocks.

Pete Piotrowski, vice president and general manager of Process Technology and Equipment for Honeywell’s UOP said, “The new Unicracking complex will help the refinery increase their fuel and lube yields through an integrated and cost-effective approach.”

“The EMRE technology platform provides a one-stop solution for Rafinerija Nafte Brod’s hydroprocessing and fuel de-waxing needs,” said Vince Alberico, manager of Technology, Sales and Licensing for EMRE.

The Unicracking complex will include Honeywell’s UOP two-stage Unicracking process integrated with EMRE’s MSDW™ process for selective dewaxing lubricant feedstocks and EMRE’s MIDW™ processes for dewaxing diesel feedstocks. The complex will upgrade more than 45,000 barrels per stream day of kerosene, diesel and vacuum gas oil feedstock into high-quality diesel and jet fuels. It will also produce high-quality base oils that will be used for the production of Group II and Group III lubricants at Refineria Ulia Modricha, which is part of the oil refining production chain in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The new complex is scheduled to start operations in 2016.

Honeywell’s UOP Unicracking technology provides flexibility to upgrade a variety of feedstocks to high-quality, lighter transportation fuel products. It can also be used to produce low-sulfur naphthas for reforming into gasoline, or to upgrade FCC products for additional distillate production or sulfur removal.
