Turbine Fuels From Tar Sand Bitumen And Heavy Oils: Preliminary Process Analysis
The strategic potential of domestic bitumens and heavy crude oils as substitutes for imported crude rests with their efficient conversion into aviation turbine fuels. In this Phase I study preliminary analyses of several processing schemes have been performed. The comparison included both hydrogen addition and carbon rejection upgrading process: Projected JP-4 yields, costs, and thermal efficiencies suggest further exploration of the hydrovisbreaking process. For Phase II, laboratory scale demonstration of the recommended process is proposed.
