Paramount Petroleum: Plant-Wide Energy-Efficiency Assessment Identifies Three Projects

Karen Atkison

    Research output: NRELBrochure


    The Paramount Petroleum plant-wide energy assessment identified a cost-effective electrical power and heat energy production facility and systems that could benefit from either fuel-burn adjustments or a new drive/control system. This could lead to independence from a local electric utility with much improved reliability, estimated annual energy savings of 1,200,000 kWh of electricity, andestimated annual savings of $4.1 million for energy reduction and other improvements.
