Overview of Petroleum Refining Process Used in Refinery

Know and understand the main chemical processes used in oil refineries to convert crude oil into valuable petroleum products

What You Will Learn in This Course

  • Complete understanding of the crude oil refining industry
  • Major refining processes
  • Major conversion processes used to upgrade petroleum cuts 
  • Isomerization, Alkylation 
  • Catalytic reformers 
  • Hydrotreaters, Fluid catalytic crackers 
  • Hydrocrackers, Delayed cokers

What is Covered in This Course

This course is designed to provide you with a complete understanding of the crude oil refining industry and breaks down for you all the major refining processes into easily digestible concepts using extensive graphics, process layouts, and various manufacturing schemes.

You will first get a quick overview of the petroleum industry to put things into perspective before your journey begins.
Then you will discover the different types of crude oil, their composition, their hydrocarbon components' chemical properties, and how refiners separate these molecules using a distillation process.

You will also learn the major conversion processes used to upgrade petroleum cuts into better-quality blending components for gasoline, diesel, heating oil, and heavy fuel production.

These processes include:

    1. Isomerization
    2. Alkylation
    3. Catalytic reformers
    4. Hydrotreaters
    5. Fluid catalytic crackers
    6. Hydrocrackers
    7. Delayed cokers

For each of these conversion processes, you will learn:

    • Operating principles
    • Process flow diagram
    • Operating conditions
    • Associated yields
    • Catalysts used

Asphalts and lubricating oils are also covered in this course. You will learn how these products are made from crude oil and discover their associated manufacturing processes.

So with no further ado, check out the free preview videos and the curriculum, and we look forward to seeing you in the first section.

Also, remember, as an enrolled student, you will have unlimited access to this material and one-on-one instructor support. So feel free to interact with us by email or simply ask us for help in the Q&A section. It will be our pleasure to help you and provide assistance.

Hope to see you there.

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...
Nancy Kramer, Refinery Quality Engineer
I really enjoyed this course and I'm impressed by the ability of the instructor to simplify complex technical topics ! This course is perfect for me as a beginner. I really appreciate all the petroleum process schemes also attached at the end of the course and that can be downloaded in pdf format. It gave me the opportunity to progress offline and study them at my pace. The last lecture is really a plus to this course because after examining each process separately, the instructor illustrated in the last video how they are connected to each other and how they all work together. It really gave me a "helicopter view" of a typical crude oil refinery. Thank you for this wonderful course !
Thomas Lodge, Chemical Engineer
Involved and well narrated, this course has proven valuable for my new career. Thank you for providing this excellent course !
