Bantrel was responsible for FEED through EPCM services for a clean fuels project at Shell's Sarnia and Montreal refineries.
Bantrel held engineering, procurement and construction management responsibility for the new 20,000 BPD low sulphur gasoline hydrotreaters at Shell Canada’s refineries in Sarnia, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec. IFP Prime-G+ process technology was selected for processing fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) gasoline feed of varying sulphur contents, producing a gasoline product containing less than 30 ppmw sulphur while minimizing octane losses.
The new facilities included a selective hydrogenation unit with a single fixed bed reactor, light-cycle / heavy-cycle naphtha (LCN / HCN) splitting using a trayed distillation column, a Prime-G+ HCN desulphurization unit incorporating two fixed-bed reactors in series, and desulphurized HCN product stabilization prior to storage. The project also involved associated off-site activities including tie-ins to various utility services and installation of a new unit flare knock-out drum and flare system.
The Sarnia and Montreal project engineering and procurement functions were executed in our Toronto office as a combined project, thus maximizing the opportunities for synergy, cost effectiveness and schedule acceleration.
