Spencer Allemond
Complex technical concepts made easy ! Really enjoyed this course ! Additional resources are of high quality and very insightful. I loved the high quality overall detailed refining scheme so much that I did actually print it and put it in our meeting room at work ! I work in the quality department of a small refinery and this course was very interesting for me. All my colleagues loved the refinery drawing. I advised them to enroll in...

I am working on a mathematical model of crude oil transportation from wells to refineries. This course was very informative about many logistics issues that I was not aware of.
