The impact on the U.S. petroleum refining industry of a possible EPA regulation limiting the level of gaseous refinery sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions is discussed. Computer models representing specific refineries in six geographical regions of the U.S. are developed as the basis for determining the impact on the existing refining industry. New refinery construction during the period under analysis (1975-1985) is also considered by development of computer models representing new grassroots refineries. The computer models are used to assess investment and energy requirements to meet the possible regulation and the incremental cost to manufacture all refinery products as a result of the regulation. Parametric studies evaluated the impact of variations in the types of imported crude oils available for future domestic refining and the projected sulfur level of residual fuel oil manufactured in the U.S.
