  • Distillate vs Gasoline seasonal turnaround Hi guys, I came cross a few refinery questions. I was hoping that you guys could help me out or tell me where to look. 1. When a refinery switch from gasoline to distillates to prep for the winter, how long does it take? 2. What process does it typically involve? 3. Does it have to shut down any production while making these seasonal changes? 4. After it is all done, what is the gain in distillates and loss in gasoline? Thank you guys so much! Best, Brian

  • Abed Hello, In FCC unit we want to change the catalyst supplier, my questions are as follows: - If we must change completely the catalyst (50 tonnes between regenerator and reactor), or may simply make extra? what are the considerations to make in this case? Thank you for answering me.
