CDU-VDU Grassroots Design

Grassroots/greenfield designs are not constrained by existing process flow schemes or equipment designs. These units can be designed based on sound fundamentals and the know-how and lessons learned from existing CDU/VDUs including those processing heavy and extra-heavy crudes or those processing high percentages of tight sands blends. Process Consulting Services’ experience revamping more than 75 CDU/VDUs has allowed us to gather large quantities of real process and equipment performance data. Based on our accumulated knowledge, reliable, robust, and profitable grassroots units can be designed and built.


Many of the large international design firms design many different processing units such as sulfur plants, waste water handling, utilities, hydrotreaters, etc. These companies rarely have dedicated CDU/VDU design personnel. At Process Consulting Services we are committed to designing the best CDU/VDUs in the world. We consistently deliver reliable designs that give our clients the flexibility they need to process their desired range of crude feedstocks. Our thorough understanding and application of engineering principles allows Process Consulting Services to design fundamentally sound process flow schemes and reliable and operable equipment. Our designs lead to maximum yield of high value products, minimum energy consumption, optimum product quality, and the flexibility needed to process varying opportunity crudes. We do not believe that it is possible to have a robust, reliable, and ultimately profitable refinery without the right process flow scheme or equipment design.


Whether a refiner is looking to process heavy crudes, light tight sands crudes, or anything in between, each category of crude has unique characteristics. Process Consulting Services understands the challenges associated with different crudes from around the world. Our superior process and equipment designs allow refiners to overcome the problems associated with different crudes to achieve their run length and product quality goals.
