One of the primary products of hydrodewaxing process is stable gasoline, which is characterized by low octane number on the one hand. On the other hand, it contains a significant amount of iso-paraffins (on average 45 % wt.) and naphthenes (on average 25 % wt.), which are reagents in the naphtha catalytic reforming process primary reactions. Feasibility of stable gasoline obtained by means of diesel fuel catalytic hydrodewaxing process involving into the processing at the naphtha catalytic

Technological scheme of stable gasoline from hydrodewaxing unit supply to the reforming unit is presented. Naphtha catalytic reforming and diesel fuels hydrodewaxing processes resource efficiency increases by 15-20 % due to rise in catalytic reforming feed source.
