ROST has a contract with a Heavy Oil to Fuel Technology Company. Applications include use at the wellhead to produce a syncrude to reduce transportation costs by increasing the crude API so that a diluent is not required. Steam from the technology can be utilised to reduce production costs. The technology can be used at a refinery to increase yield and reduce the production of heavy fuel oil. Total acid number, Sulphur, metals and asphaltines can be improved. Other applications such as power stations and bunker fuel blending are under review.
