I'm new here, and would like to ask for your help naming one process unit or better process complex. It consists of 4 units: atmospheric distillation unit, naphtha catalytic reformer and hydrotreater, aviation kerosene and diesel hydrotreater, and LPG unit. In Russia they are called LK-6U. Is it correct naming it crude unit?
Thanks in advance for any help!

I believe the term you are looking for is a "Hydroskimming" refinery. Most of those types of refineries have shut down over the years due to requirements for more complex refinery processes. However, with all the new fracking going on, it's possible those types of complexes may increase in popularity to some degree again.Less
