Abstract : Pilot plant process data have been incorporated in three design bases for manufacturing military fuels from raw Occidental shale oil. Processing schemes for 90,000 BPCD refineries to maximize either JP-4, JP-8 or to produce JP-4 plus other military fuels are presented. The processing sequence comprises moderate severity hydrotreating, fractionation, anhydrous HC1 extraction and hydrocarcking. Plant capacities and product yields were not optimized. Investments for the three refinery options considered are 1.5 to 2.0 times as much as a comparable size petroleum fuels refinery. At maximum JP-4 or JP-8 production the yields are about 87 and 53 volume % of total refinery energy input, respectively. Overall, refinery thermal efficiency is or = 75%. Inspection data are presented for five samples of specification aviation turbine fuels prepared from pilot plant operations. (Author)
