Petropower – A High-Value, Strategic Energy Solution

February 22, 2017 @ 6:00 am - 7:00 am EST

* On March 2, 2017, Sumitomo Heavy Industries signed an agreement with Amec Foster Wheeler to buy its core fluidized bed boiler business to form Sumitomo SHI FW.



Amec Foster Wheeler will conduct a free webinar presenting PetroPower technology and how it provides its highest value to regions which have both low delayed coking capacity and use a high level of oil fuels for power generation. PetroPower could boost their export of high value liquids while dramatically reducing their power generation cost.


Topics presented in the webinar will include:

  • How the value yield from crude oil can be greatly increased by 30% by eliminating blending of vacuum residuals with higher value refined products
  • How, compared to a simple refinery with an HFO power plant, the cost of power can be reduced by 44%
  • The value of producing a high heating value, low ash petcoke product that can be traded globally or used for fuel for CFB boilers to produce power
  • Illustration of attractive payback and internal rate of return for investment in delayed coking and CFB power
  • Regions that can benefit most from adoption of PetroPower – Middle East, Africa and Latin America


In addition, this webinar will provide a review of the operational experience of several refineries and power plants utilizing the PetroPower concept both in a fully integrated and open-market applications. Examples include the longest running PetroPower plant in the world where a 12 kbbl/day delayed coking facility coupled with to a 74 MWe CFB cogeneration plant provides both steam and power.
