This course has been developed to supply a quick overview of the operate and interrelationship of the petroleum refinery fuels processes mostly found in trendy petroleum refineries. These processes refine petroleum crude oils into the literally tons of of specification petroleum products, lots of which we use every day. Refinery fuels processes fall into several broad categories: Fractionation (distillation), Treating and Upgrading. This course is relevant to all engineering disciplines. Upon successful completion of this course, the pupil may have achieved a primary understanding of what happens inside a trendy petroleum refinery. Moreover, the pupil will learn how the most common refinery fuels processes accomplish the refining of crude oils into the fuels specification products that the markets demand.
