English [Auto-generated]
Strong Foundations in the Petroleum Refining Industry, products and its processes
Oil& Gas Industry
Market insight (supply/demand) as well as (production/consumption)
Processes such as: Refining, Fractionation, Atmospheric Distillation, Vacuum Distillation
Further Processes such as: Hydrotreating (Hydrogenation), Blending, Reforming, Isomerization, Alkylation, etc...
Several Cracking ProcesseS: Steam Cracking, Fluid Catalytic Cracking
Treatment of other materials such as Sour Gases via Gas Sweetening and Coking

The main scope of the course is to create strong basis and fundamentals regarding the processes in the Petroleum Refining. We take a look to the Oil&Gas Industry briefly and continue directly with the Refining Process. We then make a focus in each individual unit operation in the  refinery.

Learn about:

  • Oil& Gas Industry

  • Difference between Petroleum Refining vs. Petrochemical Industry

  • Overview of the most important operations and products

  • Market insight (supply/demand) as well as (production/consumption)

  • Several Petroleum Refineries around the World
