The predominant number of processes utilizing the Direct Coal Liquefaction as well as Heavy Oil Upgrading processes are all dealing with the same challenges:

  • Elevated process pressures
  • Elevated process temperatures
  • Slurry handling in the core process steps

Although these challenges are inherent to such processes for about 100 years, still today the process performance requires sound design, operating philosophies and procedures which are unique for such processes.

Our technical consulting services support our Client’s to lower significantly the learning curve costs associated with these challenges and deliver a state of the art performance in safety, availability, reliability and operability of such commercial scale plants.

This we achieve by delivering our Know-how and developments throughout all phases of such projects, starting with our participation in early feasibility studies and R&D programs, throughout all engineering phases and further to the point of supporting the start-up and operation.
