Improving energy efficiency in the Crude-1 plant at the A Coruña Industrial Complex

We are carrying out an energy efficiency improvement project at the Crude-1 Industrial Complex in A Coruña that consists in the installation of two new heat exchangers that recover heat from products to be used to pre-heat crude oil being sent to the furnace, and thus reduce fuel consumption in the unit's furnace. This will lead to a reduction of 5,082 tons of CO2 per year in one of the largest units at the refinery, which could mean an energy savings of 2.2341587 ktoe/year.

This €3,000,000 investment is part of Repsol's 25/25 Plan for emissions reductions. The project has received aid amounting to €1,080,000 from the financial assistance fund for energy efficiency and savings in SMEs and large businesses in the industrial sector, which is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), coordinated by the Institute for Energy Diversification and Savings (IDAE, in Spanish), administered by the Energy Institute of Galicia (INEGA, in Galician), and paid out of the National Energy Efficiency Fund, with the objective of achieving a cleaner, more sustainable economy.

Modifications in the low pressure section (stripper) of UNIFINER 2

At the REPSOL PETROLEO industrial complex in A Coruña, a project has been carried out involving a series of modifications in the low pressure section (stripper) of the Unifiner 2 unit aimed at achieving its operational and energy optimization. This project consists in replacing the stripper plates and five control valves, incorporating recirculation for minimum flow in pump P-P4A/B, and installing a variable speed drive for engine P-E4.

These modifications will lead to energy savings of 0.585548 ktep/year, thereby avoiding 1,373.48 tCO2/year of emissions into the atmosphere, which results in direct natural gas and electricity savings for the complex.

This €258,958.50 project received financial aid worth €75,147.97 from the financial assistance fund for energy efficiency and savings in SMEs and large businesses in the industrial sector, which is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), coordinated by IDAE, administered by the autonomous communities, and paid out of the National Energy Efficiency Fund, with the objective of achieving a cleaner, more sustainable economy.

New flare gas recovery compressor in Tarragona

At the REPSOL PETROLEO industrial complex in Tarragona, a new compressor was installed for the Flare Gas Recovery Plant (U 425), with the aim of recovering the fuel contained in the gas from processing units that otherwise would be used for flaring. In this way, 1,321.73 toe/year of thermal energy would be recovered, thereby avoiding 2,757.11 tons of CO2/year of emissions into the atmosphere, and which means a direct savings of natural gas at the complex.

The €2,383,363.63 project received aid worth €715,009.09 from the financial assistance fund for energy efficiency and savings in SMEs and large businesses in the industrial sector, which is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), coordinated by IDAE, administered by the autonomous communities, and paid out of the National Energy Efficiency Fund, with the objective of achieving a cleaner, more sustainable economy.
