    Abstract

    Fuel consumption in furnace about 75% from the total of energy consumption has created a dilemma in the oil industry to succed the energy conservation. As a consideration, crude distiller unit (CDU) of Indonesia’s oil refinery plant has two furnaces. The objective of this study is to target the minimum of energy consumptio in furnace of CDU of oil refinery plant through the method of pinch analysis. This method identified the process to seek the weakness and allowed the engineer to modify the process using new operation condition by varying the minimum temperature of air and adding superheated steam entranced to furnace. As results, the minimizing of fuel consumption has reached 53% along with the reduction of fuel consumption from 21 ton/day to 11 ton/day.
