Course Information:


This popular 2-day (or 3-day) course will present an overview of the modern, integrated petroleum refinery. Each refining process will be presented, covering operating description and conditions, feedstock and catalyst selection, product yields, and the relationship between process parameters, unit performance and product output and properties. Finally, future operations, including anticipated changes in crude oil and product slates, will be recapped. Designed for refinery personnel seeking a thorough overview of the refining process, the course will also provide useful information to suppliers, crude oil traders, or those involved in financial assessment.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
