Crude oil distillation (atmospheric distillation column with furnace) consumes about 50% of the energy required in oil refinery plant. To achieve further reduction of the energy required in oil refinery plants, it is required to investigate the crude oil distillation and to retrofit it for energy saving process. Recently, authors developed an innovative process design technology, self-heat recuperation technology for energy saving. In this research, the crude oil distillation with exergy analysis and the feasibility for application of the self-heat recuperation technology have been investigated, and develop the self-heat recuperative crude oil distillation
