Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. The demand for petroleum products is increasing throughout the world. Traditional markets such as North America and Europe are experiencing moderate increase in demand, whereas the other emerging markets are witnessing a rapid surge. This has resulted in a squeeze on existing refineries, prompting a fresh technological approach to optimize efficiency and throughput. Major oil companies and technology suppliers/licensors are investing heavily to revamp their refining technologies in an effort to cater to the growing needs of customers. Even though the nature of crude oil is changing, refineries are here to stay in the foreseeable future, since petroleum products satisfy wideranging energy requirements/demands that are not fully catered to by natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), or coal. Refineries are eager to adapt to changing circumstances and are amenable to trying new technologies that are radically different in character. This is evident from the increasing use of different types of refinery process technology and novel separation methods.This course will give an up-to-date overview of most of the refinery production technologies employed by refineries around the world and it is designed provide an extensive and deep knowledge as well as the description of the technology. Further, this course will guide the participants to develop key concepts and techniques to operate, select and optimize refinery processes. The course covers a wide range of topics such general chemistry, organic, chemical used in refinery processes, refinery infrastructure, refinery feedstocks, crude distillation, coking & thermal processes, catalytic cracking, catalytic hydrocracking, hydroprocessing & resid processing, hydrotreating, catalytic reforming & isomerization, alkylation & polymerization, product blending, supporting processes, lubricating oil blending stocks, petrochemical feedstocks, additives production from refinery feedstocks, maintenance & safety and environmental considerations link to course overview PDF
