Crude Management

Crude management is a useful and necessary tool for successfully incorporating unconventional oil into the refinery crude slate. For example, opportunity crudes can lead to a wide range of processing problems: high TAN crudes may lead to extensive corrosion; highly asphaltic crudes may cause thick rag layers in the desalter or fouling issues downstream; highly contaminated crudes may cause catalyst deactivation, etc. Important components of crude management are analysis and miscibility determination, assays and simulation, selection and blending, blending mechanics, oil storage, and logistics.
