Interest in integrating refining and petrochemical complexes continues to grow due to synergies between these two groups of technologies. The advantages of integration include upgrading of otherwise low value byproducts, improved energy efficiency, and greater vertical integration.  There are many factors to consider when selecting integrated technologies including product slate and mix, feedstock sourcing, and local regulatory requirements that require a thorough understanding how to optimize the intermediate streams to their highest value potential.   This presentation will highlight some examples showing the various types and levels of integrated complexes in different regions of the world.  It will also highlight integrated technology options and the importance of proper technology selection for different integrated complex configurations and objectives.
