Nelson complexity index of us refineries

The Nelson complexity index (NCI) is a measure to compare the secondary conversion capacity of a petroleum refinery with the primary distillation capacity. The index provides an easy metric for quantifying and ranking the complexity of various refineries and units. To calculate the index, it is nece

refinery's process units (Nelson, 1976). In general, the higher a refinery's complexity index, the greater the refinery's ability to convert more of the heavy fractions  widespread use of refining complexity, however, surprisingly. little material has been Spatial complexity. generalizes the complexity index at geographic scales, and Table 3 Nelson's complexity factors for refining operations. Source: OGJ. 4 Jan 2017 Nelson expressed the complexity of a process unit as the grassroots About a third of US refineries have complexity index greater than 10.

20 Feb 2018 Refiners that produce fewer distillates, and low complexity refineries and US East Coast markets face particular risk of diminishing utilization rates and even closure The Nelson Complexity Index is one measure of refinery.

30 Jun 2016 a wide range of crudes is defined by its Nelson Complexity Index (NCI). After hitting a low feedstock API of near 30° in 2008, US refineries  28 May 2018 investors with assets under management in excess of US$1.0 billion, provided that they are not NCI denotes Nelson Complexity Index. The Nelson complexity index is a measure to compare the secondary conversion capacity of a petroleum refinery with the primary distillation capacity. The index provides an easy metric for quantifying and ranking the complexity of various refineries and units. To calculate the index, it is necessary to use complexity factors, which compare the cost of upgrading units to the cost of crude distillation unit. The Nelson Complexity Index (NCI) is a measure of the sophistication of an oil refinery, where more complex refineries are able to produce lighter, more heavily refined and valuable products from a barrel of oil. Refineries that are higher on the Nelson Complexity Index are valued higher relative The larger the Nelson index of a refinery, the more complex it is. As an example, Phillips 66 reports that its U.S. refineries range in Nelson complexity from 7.0 at its Ferndale refinery in Washington because it has a fluid catalytic cracker, alkylation, and hydrotreating units, to 14.1 at its Los Angeles refinery in California because it has a fluid catalytic cracker, alkylation, hydrocracking, reforming, and coking units. In addition to those two West Coast examples, the U.S. Gulf Coast Nelson developed the complexity index to quantify the relative cost of components that make up a refinery. It is a pure cost index that provides a relative measure of the construction costs of a particular refinery based on its crude and upgrading capacity.
