There is no one solution to the world’s, or our customers’, energy needs.
At PFEC, tailored solutions mean options.
Our extensive global experience allows us to think differently.
Our energy expertise expands across different key areas.
British Columbia near-zero net-carbon refinery
A 200,000-Bpd bitumen-to-fuels refinery located in northwest British Columbia, Canada, on an industrial-zone site known as Dubose Flats, between the cities of Terrace and Kitimat.
The facility will refine cost-advantaged feedstock into EURO V-standard fuels and uses carbon capture and storage (CCS) to minimize CO2 emissions.
The facility uses hydrocracking to process heavy oil, and is powered by our own 200-megawatt gas-powered power plant.
PFEC initiated the permitting process and is completing the Environmental Impact Assessment.
CAPEX for the first phase of 100,000 Bpd is estimated at US$7.5 billion.
Alberta diluent recovery unit
As part of the BC refinery supply chain, PFEC intends to build a diluent recovery unit (DRU), including a rail-loading terminal and storage tanks in Alberta.
Alberta has widely available dilbit (diluted bitumen). A DRU facility strips condensate from dilbit to process it into NeatBit™, which would then be shipped to the refinery from an adjacent rail terminal.
The DRU would also be used to ship Canadian heavy crude oil to the U.S. Gulf Coast, using rail, at competitive costs to pipelines.
Waste-to-energy plant – Lebanon
The Waste Gasification Power Generation System uses RDF (fuel made by crushing, selecting, drying and compressing combustible waste) as raw material, and adopts the advanced technology of waste gasification to produce combustible gas. The steam produced from the burning of the gas then can be used by the steam turbine to generate power.
Our patented and unique process emits zero CO2, and generates roughly 3 megawatts of electricity from each 250 tons of trash ingested.
In light of historic changes in the last two years – shifting political dynamics, increased urgency to address climate change, the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and more – the potential for solar growth has only increased.
Recent forecasts for the solar industry under a business-as-usual scenario would place solar at roughly 15% of electricity generation in 2030, but with bold policy action and continued private-sector innovation, this ambitious target is absolutely achievable in the U.S. alone.
We undertake solar projects on a turnkey EPC basis.
Refinery complex in Iraq
150,000-Bpd refinery complex in Nasiriyah, Iraq. The complex includes a 200-megawatt power plant, and a pipeline connecting Nasiriyah with Basra.
We won an international EPC bid in October 2018, on a 50- year Build-Operate-Own (BOO) basis.
We provided 100% financing for this US$5.1-billion project, and will complete the project on a turnkey EPC+F basis, in conjunction with our partner, Lanpec Technologies Ltd.
Immediate solution to electric- vehicle charging
- The exponential growth of electrical vehicle (EV) acceptance has bypassed availability of charging points.
- EV “Range Anxiety” is the biggest impediment to EV adoption.
- The recent US$1.2-trillion infrastructure bill includes over US$7.5 billion EV charging-point expansion.
- Over 500,000 new independent charging points are needed in the U.S. over the next few years.
- This will put huge pressure on the grid, and will cause even more CO2 emissions.
- Our solution combines building micro-solar farms outside major cities, used to charge our proprietary mobile batteries
- Our batteries are then moved to major concentration points (for example, malls, parking lots, gasoline stations,) to be used as charging points.
