Refinery Upgrades to Meet New EPA Requirements

Meeting the EPA's New Tier 3 Regulations for Gasoline with Increasingly Available Light Naphtha

Fitting Light Naphtha into the Gasoline Blend Pool
New octane and sulfur reduction requirements increase the challenge to upgrade high-vapor pressured light naphtha in the gasoline pool.

With the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 3 rule lowering sulfur content from 30 ppm to 10 ppm less than a year away, certain refiners are still evaluating the options to achieving Tier 3 requirements.

Some refiners will deal with the challenges by relinquishing fuel market share and shift fuel/petrochemical production ratios toward petrochemical derivatives.

Sulfur Content and Octane Quality 2017 (30-31 March 2017, Houston) is your conference to meet the EPA's new Tier 3 emissions regulations for gasoline while taking advantage of increasingly available light naphtha.

What's new at Sulfur Content & Octane Quality 2017?
New Tier 3 Requirements in effect on 1 January 2017

Investments to upgrade higher volumes of untreated naphtha and natural gasoline to Tier 3 specifications

Meet EPA Requirements at Sulfur Content & Octane Quality 2017
According to the EPA, there are about 108 U.S. refineries impacted by Tier 3, of which 40 are already capable of meeting Tier 3 requirements, leaving another 67 facilities with one to six years to upgrade their capabilities in meeting Tier 3 specifications.

This means even those refineries that comply through the use of credits will make a variety of operating changes and/or low capital changes to lower their sulfur levels below current Tier 2 levels to minimize their need for credits.
