Abstract To meet increasing demand for distillate, the refiner has to commit capital to provide incremental capacity or new processing facilities, especially in hydrocracking, delayed coking and visbreaking. The incremental cost of distillate production has been determined in terms of the increase in total cost or in crude oil usage per tonne of extra distillate. We use a model of the oil-refining and transportation sectors to arrive at the optimal selection of capital investment, refinery configuration, crude slate and vehicle fleet.
