Atmospheric Distillation Unit

PFD-Typical-for-atmospheric-distillation-column

Crude oil is sent to the atmospheric distillation unit after desalting and heating. The purpose of atmospheric distillation is primary separation of various ‘cuts’ of hydrocarbons namely, fuel gases, LPG, naptha, kerosene, diesel and fuel oil. The heavy hydrocarbon residue left at the bottom of the atmospheric distillation column is sent to vacuum distillation column for further separation of hydrocarbons under reduced pressure.

As the name suggests, the pressure profile in atmospheric distillation unit is close to the atmospheric pressure with highest pressure at the bottom stage which gradually drops down till the top stage of the column.

The temperature is highest at the bottom of the column which is constantly fed with heat from bottoms reboiler. The reboiler vaporizes part of the bottom outlet from the column and this vapor is recycled back to the distillation column and travels to the top stage absorbing lighter hydrocarbons from the counter current crude oil flow. The temperature at the top of the column is the lowest as the heat at this stage of the column is absorbed by a condenser which condenses a fraction of the vapors from column overhead. The condensed hydrocarbon liquid is recycled back to the column. This condensed liquid flows down through the series of column trays, flowing counter current to the hot vapors coming from bottom and condensing some of those vapors along the way.

Thus a reboiler at the bottom and a condenser at the top along with a number of trays in between help to create temperature and pressure gradients along the stages of the column. The gradual variation of temperature and pressure from one stage to another and considerable residence time for vapors and liquid at a tray help to create near equilibrium conditions at each tray. So ideally we can have a number of different vapor-liquid equilibria at different stages of this column with varying temperature and pressure conditions. This means that the hydrocarbon composition also varies for different trays with the variation in temperature and pressure.

The heaviest hydrocarbons are taken out as liquid flow from the partial reboiler at bottom and the lightest hydrocarbons are taken out from the partial condenser at the column overhead. For the in between trays or stages, the hydrocarbons become lighter as one moves up along the height of the column. Various other cuts of hydrocarbons are taken out as sidedraws from different stages of the column. Starting from LPG at the top stages, naptha, kerosene, diesel and gas oil cuts are taken out as we move down the stages of atmospheric column.

The heaviest hydrocarbon residue taken out from partial reboiler is sent to the vacuum distillation column for further separation under reduced pressure. The different cuts of hydrocarbons taken out at this stage are the result of primary separation and undergo further processing before being transformed to end products.

The Art of Job Search Networking

Networking is networking, right? It’s not – when you’re job-hunting, your networking task is a little different and a tad harder than the average networker’s. For starters, you’ve got to sustain a conversation beyond “What do you do?” “I’m job-hunting.” “Oh.”

Slide1

Job-hunters take a lot of flack on their networking prowess, usually for one of these reasons:

  • They don’t network until they need a job.
  • When they network, they immediately ask for job-search help.
  • They request introductions from people they’re meeting for the first time.

If you’re in the thick of a job search and you haven’t spent much time or attention on your network so far, the first of these problems may be unavoidable. But you can easily avoid the other two common job-seeking-networker problems by following a few simple job-search networking rules.

Rule Number One: It’s Not All About You

A common and understandable belief about job-seeking networkers is this: of course I want to talk about my job search, at every chance I get. I need a job! Surely people can understand that this is a critical priority in my life. Excuse me if I can’t get excited about your new product launch or your daughter’s kindergarten graduation. I’ve got to get a job, and my need trumps all other conversational topics!

The fact is that networking never works when it’s me-focused. Needing a job is a tough spot to be in, but virtually every networker you meet has an obstacle of one kind or another in his path. One person is an entrepreneur desperately in need of business. Another businessperson is stressing mightily about a website project spinning out of control. In other words, we all have our problems. The fact that you’re job-hunting doesn’t diminish the importance of everyone else’s issues.

A good networker listens as much as s/he talks. When you meet someone new, ask him or her a lot of questions – and pay attention to the answers. Have the conversation you’d have if you weren’t job-hunting. When the person turns the tables and asks “What do you do?,” you can say “I’m a marketing – I’m on the job market now.” Since you’ve invested ten or twenty minutes in the conversation, your new acquaintance is very likely to ask you for more information about your job search. Now, you’ve earned the right to tell your story.

Rule Number Two: Don’t Treat People as Conduits to Their More Important Friends

If you meet a person who mentions that he or she used to work at XYZ Corp, it’s the height of rudeness to ask “Gee, could you introduce me to someone in Human Resources at that company?” With that request, you commit two very big sins. First, you convey that you have no problem asking a brand-new acquaintance a favor. That’s impolite. You wouldn’t like it if a person, after three minutes of conversation, asked you for ten dollars for parking. And contacts, introductions that trade on long-term relationships, are more valuable than money.

The second offense is asking a person to vouch for you, who barely knows you. Instead of asking a new acquaintance for an introduction, ask for five minutes on the phone when your new contact has time. In that phone call, you may cultivate a relationship that allows your networking buddy to make an introduction for you. Let’s hope that happens! If it doesn’t, you can’t ask – without being branded a me-first networker.

Even if you haven’t cultivated your network pre-job-search, you can network effectively in a way that moves your job search along. It just takes some patience, careful attention to the needs of people other than yourself, and the willingness to follow up with the new contacts you make. As you make those follow-up phone calls and send your day-after-the-networking-event email messages, you’ll naturally offer to help your new contacts as readily as you’ll ask for help yourself. After all, everyone can use help of one kind or another; and everyone has some help to offer.

Don’t assume that because you’re on the job market, you’re stuck on the receiving end of the networking-assistance equation.

Government initiatives to give additional boost to Indian engineering industry

Engineering industry is one of the largest industries in India. This industry, being closely associated with the manufacturing and infrastructure sectors of the economy, is of strategic importance to nation’s economy. Growth in this sector is driven by various sub-sectors such as infrastructure, power, steel, automotives, oil and gas, consumer durables etc. The industry can be broadly categorized into two segment namely heavy engineering and light engineering. Most of the leading players are engaged in the production of heavy engineering goods and mainly produces high-value products using high-end technology. The light engineering goods segment uses medium to low-end technology. Entry barrier in this segment is low on account of the comparatively lower requirement of capital and technology and it is characterized by the dominance of small and unorganized players.

The government plays an important role in developing the engineering section of the economy. The engineering industry has been de-licensed and enjoys 100 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI). Cumulative FDI in the sector totaled $ 26.6 billion over April 2000-May 2015.

Growth of engineering industry

Growth in this industry has been fueled by growth in key end-user industries and many new projects undertaken in various core industries such as railways, power, and infrastructure. Capacity creation in sectors such as infrastructure, oil and gas, power, mining, automobiles, auto components, steel, refinery, and consumer durables has driven growth in this sector. For example, the domestic sales of automobiles have grown at a CAGR of around 20 per cent over the past four years thereby increasing the demand for engineering goods. Apart from demand from user industries, the availability of technical education infrastructure that provides an increased number of technically trained human resources each year has been another key factor aiding the engineering industry in India. Besides, India is being preferred by global manufacturing companies as an outsourcing destination on account of its lower labor cost and better designing capabilities.

Growth in sector driven by key user industries

Rising engineering exports

In the financial year 2015 Indian engineering exports surged by around 15%  to $70.6 billion as compared to $61.6 billion in the previous financial year. Transport equipment remained the leading contributor to engineering exports. The segment accounted for 33.5% of the total engineering exports during financial year 2015. Machinery and instruments is the other major contributor with a share of 31.8% of the total engineering exports. The base metal sector (including iron and steel) contributes 32.9% to the total exports from the engineering sector. The US and Europe together account for about 60 per cent of India’s total engineering exports, as demand in key markets such as the US and the UAE is on the rise. Apart from these traditional markets, Eastern and Central European countries markets such as Poland also hold huge opportunity. India’s engineering exports to Japan and South Korea too have increased with shipments to these two countries rising by 16 and 60 per cent respectively.

Investments in the industry

Major investments and developments in the Indian engineering industry:
Hyderabad-based infra player IL&FS Engineering Services has bagged a port project worth Rs 179.84 crore ($ 28.74 million) in Maharashtra. The company has received a letter of award (LOA) from IL&FS Maritime Infrastructure Company (IMICL) on behalf of Dighi Port for engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the development of multipurpose berth, backup yard development and utilities of multipurpose terminal berth 5 on the north of Dighi Port, Agardanda in Maharashtra.
Vistara, the Tata Sons-Singapore Airlines JV, has signed an agreement with Airbus for engineering support services which include components supply and airframe maintenance.
Honeywell Turbo Technologies has partnered with Tata to develop their first ever petrol turbocharged engine. The new Tata Revotron 1.2T engine launched in the 2014 Tata Zest delivers improved power and torque and a multi-drive mode. Engineers India (EIL) has inked a $139 million consultancy deal for a 20 million tonnes (MT) refinery and polypropylene plant being built in Nigeria by Dangote Group.
Bharat Forge has acquired Mecanique Generate Langroise (MGL), French oil and gas machining company, via its German arm CDP Bharat Forge GmbH. The company will benefit from MGL’s expertise in precision machining and other high value processes like cladding which have critical application in the oil and gas industry.
Royal Enfield, a two wheeler division of Eicher Motors, acquired UK based design and engineering company Harris Performance Products, whose expertise, knowledge and understanding of motorcycling will help Eicher Motors achieve leadership in the global mid-sized motorcycling segment.

Government initiatives

Government’s `Make in India’ campaign has received the attention of several infrastructure and engineering multi nationals including GE and ThyssenKrupp, which are considering investing in the country. The Government has also awarded a record 56 defence manufacturing permits to private sector entities like Mahindra, Tata and Pipavav, etc., in the past year to set up production units for major military equipment.
Reflecting rapid expansion in military ties, Israel has announced its willingness to share cutting-edge defence technologies with India and both countries will go for co-development of a number of key weapon systems soon. Israeli Defence Minister Mr Moshe Ya’alon said both countries have overcome hurdles in co-development of Barak 8 missile defence system and work on another key project of aerial defence systems was on track.
With the aim to boost the manufacturing sector, the government has relaxed the excise duties on factory gate tax, capital goods, consumer durables and vehicles. It has also reduced the basic customs duty from 10 per cent to 5 per cent on forged steel rings used in the manufacture of bearings of wind operated electricity generators.

Issues and Concerns

Devaluation of Chinese Yuan, Sharp reduction in demand for base metals and commodities from China is impacting exports of India’s engineering products to the neighboring country. The country’s engineering exports to China dropped by 38% in August, while total outbound shipments of such items witnessed a fall of 29.5% to $4.49 billion from $6.38 billion in the same month last year. These numbers are negating the contention that India is somewhat decoupled from slowdown in China.

Outlook

Outlook of Indian engineering industry is positive for long term on account of infrastructure development, favorable government policies, and new investments in power projects, metals, oil & gas, petrochemicals industries, etc. Further industrial and manufacturing growth will also increase growth in the sector. As the export market offers more opportunities to explore, India’s contribution in global engineering exports is expected to increase. Emerging trends like outsourcing of engineering services provide opportunities for growth. However, devaluation of Chinese Yuan, Sharp reduction in demand for base metals and commodities from China are impacting exports of India’s engineering products to the neighboring country.
