Basics of Petroleum Refinery Processing ~ December 1-2, 2016 ~ Calgary, AB


Course Description

Petroleum refineries may appear complicated at first glance. Breaking them down into a series of units makes the process easier to understand. This course covers the basic building blocks of a typical refinery, from crude oil inlet to distribution.

This 2-day course begins by discussing energy trends and outlook. It focuses then on the core refining processes including feedstock properties, process chemistry, process variables, operating conditions, unit configuration, and refinery products. Refining processes are discussed in detail. This program is designed to serve as an introduction to petroleum refining processing.
For each process, purpose, basic chemistry, process flowsheets and typical operating parameters are reviewed. The integration of these processes to achieve different refining objectives is also addressed.

A complete set of course materials and a light lunch are included.
