Upgrading Process Comparison

Heavy Crude Upgrading

With the Pristec process, crude oil upgrading costs between $0.5 and $1 per barrel, as opposed to $10-$15 per barrel.




Fuel Oil Upgrading

Standard fuel oil upgrading processes require anywhere from 10% to 60% diluent, depending on type, to reach industry standards of 380 or 180 CST. Pristec’s upgrading process can save you $10 to $20 per barrel.
