Workshop Overview

This course will guide participates to develop key concepts and techniques for the refining of petroleum processes and economics. These key concepts can be utilised to make operating decisions that can improve unit’s performance.

Many aspects of petroleum refining operations and management can be improved through product recoveries, purities and energy utilisation, and safety. This cannot be achieved without first a thorough understanding of the fundamental principles of design and operation. These principles need to be understood in advance of operation in order for problem solving to be effective.

This course focuses on the core building blocks of the refining process systems, equipment and economics. This programme emphasizes refining process unit operation fundamentals, safe utilisation of these fundamentals by operations and maintenance personnel, and equipment troubleshooting techniques.
