The French Institute of Petroleum is a public research organisation in France founded in 1944 as Institute of Oil, Fuels and Lubricants .The Institute is based at Rueil-Malmaison near Paris, and has sites near Lyon and at Pau. As of 2004, it had 1729 employees, a budget of 253 million euros, and was responsible for a post-graduate training centre, IFP School , and an extensive industrial training programme. IFP has designed several methods to assess the oil potential of a sedimentary rock, amongst others, the Rock-Eval technique using a standardized pyrolysis apparatus. This technique is used worldwide amongst petroleum companies to compare their results in the same way. Wikipedia.

The present invention relates to an AACAES system and method in which a heat transfer fluid makes it possible to store heat. The heat transfer fluid, which comprises balls of heat storage material, circulates between two tanks: a hot tank and a cold tank, and passes through at least one heat exchanger.


There is described a hydroprocessing process of at least one gas oil cut having a weighted mean temperature (TMP) between 240 C. and 350 C. using a catalyst comprising at least one metal of the group VIB and/or at least one metal of the group VIII of the periodic classification and a support comprising an amorphous mesoporous alumina having a connectivity (Z) greater than 2.7, the hydroprocessing process operating at a temperature between 250 C. and 400 C., at a total pressure between 2 MPa and 10 MPa with a ratio of hydrogen volume to volume of hydrocarbon-containing feedstock between 100 and 800 litres per litre and at an Hourly Volume Rate (HVR) which is defined by the ratio of the volume flow rate of liquid hydrocarbon-containing feedstock to volume of catalyst fed into the reactor between 1 and 10 h^(1).


Mesoporous and macroporous hydroconversion catalyst: Preparation process for a residue hydroconversion/hydrotreating catalyst by co-mixing of the active phase with a particular alumina. Use of the catalyst in hydrotreating processes, in particular hydrotreating of heavy feedstocks.


Patent
French Institute of Petroleum | Date: 2015-06-29

The present invention concerns a process for the production of an aqueous mixture comprising isopropanol, n-butanol and ethanol, comprising a step in which an aqueous solution containing C5 and/or C6 sugars and acetate is fermented under strict anaerobic conditions in the presence of a fermenting microorganism of the genus Clostridium and in which said aqueous solution has an acetate concentration in the range 0.5 to 10 g/L and a ratio by weight of (acetate)/(sum of C5 and/or C6 sugars) in the range 0.005 to 0.35 g/g.


The present invention relates to a zeolite absorbent comprising at least one FAU zeolite with hierarchical porosity and comprising barium or barium and potassium, and the external surface area of which is greater than 20 m2.g-1, and the non-zeolite phase content being between 6% and 12% by weight with respect to the total weight of the absorbent. The present invention also relates to the use of such a zeolite absorbent as an adsorption agent, as well as the method for separation of para-xylene from aromatic isomer fractions with 8 carbon atoms.


Patent
French Institute of Petroleum and Ceca S.A. | Date: 2017-06-14

The invention relates to a method for separating meta-xylene from C8 aromatic fractions, using a zeolitic adsorbent based on sodium-exchanged or sodium-and-lithium-exchanged agglomerated crystals of zeolite Y, with a large external surface area.


Patent
French Institute of Petroleum and Ceca S.A. | Date: 2017-06-14

The invention relates to zeolitic absorbents based on at least one zeolite with hierarchical porosity, containing barium or barium and potassium, to the uses thereof for separating para-xylene from aromatic fractions containing 8 carbon atoms, and to the method for separating para-xylene from aromatic fractions containing 8 carbon atoms.


The present invention relates to a production method for hydrocarbons contained in an underground formation penetrated by at least one well. The method is based on the determination of at least one productivity index IP dependent on the temperature and pressure.
