The kickoff meeting of SUPCON MES project for Hengyi Group’s Pulau Muara Besar (PMB) Refinery and Aromatics Complex was launched at Hengyi HQ in May.
The project, co-invested by Hengyi Group and Brunei Ministry of Finance’s Strategic Development Capital Fund (SDC), marks the country’s first aromatics and chemical-fibers production base. It includes 8Mt/a atmospheric and vacuum distillation unit, 3.3 Mt/a reforming unit, 2.2Mt/a hydrocracking unit, 1.5Mt/a monomeric aromatic hydrocarbon unit, 2.2Mt/a diesel hydrotreating unit, 1.3Mt/a jet fuel hydrotreating unit, 1Mt/a flexicoking unit, 1.2Mt/a sulfur recovery unit, naphtha isomerization unit, 180,000 Nm3/h PSA unit and auxiliary utilities.
By monitoring and tracing the production materials and energy consumption, deep analysis and fine management of the product process, SUPCON MES solution will help to improve productivity and product quality, reduce consumption and emission of the complex.
