Abstract : The purpose of this research and development project is to provide sample quantities of aviation turbine fuel derived from tar sands and heavy oil feedstocks for testing and evaluation in programs sponsored by the Air Force Wright Aeronautical Laboratories (AFWAL). Samples of specification JP-4 Mil-T-5624L, JP-8 Mil-T-83133A, and variable quality JP-4 samples were produced via pilot plant operations. Data generated from Phases I, II, and III, were used to 1) optimize the processing scheme, 2) generate process material and energy balances for a commercial sized plant, and 3) provide a detailed final flow diagram of the processing scheme. A final economic analysis was performed based on all contract data available. Keywords: JP-4 Jet fuel, JP-8 Jet fuel, Reduced crude conversion, Asphalt residual treating, Hydrotreating, Heteroatom, Distillation, Catalyst, Light cycle oi, Diluent, Economic computer modeling analysis.
