Research Institute of Petroleum Industry

The division of process and equipments technology development was founded as technology development group in 1989. Having been equipped with well-educated highly experienced researchers, this division has been trying to achieve the following targets:

▪ Technology development and adaptation

▪ Feasibility studies

▪ Process scale-up and scale-down

▪ The evaluation and selection of new industrial processes

▪ The conceptual design of new processes

▪ The basic design of new processes

▪ The detailed design of new processes

▪ Debottlenecking and troubleshooting

▪ The construction of engineering pilot plants

The division has been recently working on the technologies for the productivity

enhancement of the processes of the petroleum industry, and has entered the field of equipment technology development since 2011.


  • The development and adaptation of isomerization process for increasingthe octane value of petrol produced in refineries
  • SRU process technology adaptation
  • Design , construction, installation, and startup of pentane production unit in Kermanshah Oil Refinery (unit capacity: 5000 metric ton per year)
  • Technology adaptation of FCC and RFCC processes
  • ESP’s Design and manufacturing&VSD for pumping systems
  • The design and implementation of real-time optimization (RTO) technology in downstream petroleum industry
