About This Item


Full Description

Since the publication of API 4723 in 2002, new regulatory requirements have resulted in many changes in refinery processes that may have altered process stream compositions. Changing feedstocks, new process additives, and new catalysts may also have affected the concentrations of chemical species present in specific process streams.

Based on an assessment of the range and depth of more recent stream speciation data, the Petroleum Environmental Research Forum (PERF) elected to update the stream speciation profiles in API 4723 using more recent composition sampling. The updated profiles are provided in this report. PERF members believe that the newer data are more representative due to improved sampling and analytical techniques and that these newer analyses better reflect changes in refinery operations over recent years.

A large database of records was collated for the current study, representing information from 25 refineries.

The original study reported on 24 chemical species and the current study provides data on 89 species. The original study reported on 65 refinery process streams and the current project provides data on 68 process streams.

The material contained in this report will be of use in estimating the emissions of specific chemical species, preparing permit applications, and performing other environmental assessments. API, PERF, and the project participants make no claims as to the suitability or acceptability of the stream composition data reported herein for specific reporting or regulatory purposes.
