This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Linear Alpha Olefins (LAO) production from ethylene. The process examined is similar to Shell Higher Olefins Process (SHOP). In this process, ethylene is oligomerized to produce Linear Alpha Olefins ranging mostly from C4 to C30. Olefins ranging from C4 to C18 are recovered as separate products, while higher olefins are mixed with a portion of the 1-butene generated, isomerized to internal olefins and disproportionated to internal olefins ranging from C11 to C14.
This report, LAO E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Linear Alpha Olefins production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
