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:
- Catalytic reformers
- Fluid catalytic crackers
- 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.
