Catalyst evaluation using an ARCO pilot unit on north sea atmospheric residue
Book chapter, 2010

At the end of the 1970s Statoil cracked a North Sea atmospheric residue for the first time in M. W. Kellogg’s circulating pilot unit in Texas [1]. This pilot unit was quite large, with a capacity of one barrel a day. The test in this pilot unit was very successful and showed that North Sea atmospheric residues were very suitable feedstocks for a residue fluid catalytic cracker, and that North Sea atmospheric residues gave very promising product yields.
