It was upgraded during the late 1970s, with five new processes added: flexicoking, catalytic cracking, isomerisation, alkylation and crude light ends recovery, plus the FCC unit.
He introduced several fuel-economy oils and commercialized the "flexicoking" process for converting heavy petroleum residues into light transportation fuels.
Flexicoking. A thermal cracking process which converts heavy hydrocarbons such as crude oil, tar sands bitumen, and distillation residues into light hydrocarbons.
Thermal cracking includes gas oil, visbreaking, fluid coking, delayed coking, and other thermal cracking processes (e.g., flexicoking).
