Refining Technology


This training session will present a detailed overview of refining, from the crude oil feed to the finished products.

Major refining processes are presented and discussed, including feedstocks, feedstock preparation, operating conditions, catalysts, yields, product properties, and economics.

The course is oriented toward the practical aspects of refinery operations as well as the terminology and economics of refining.


By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Act as a primer into the industry of Petroleum Refining
  • Familiarize industry professionals with all processes associated with the processing of petroleum into finished products
  • Equip new engineers into the industry, with the basic tools for understanding the complex nature of Refining and its operations

Target Audience

It is intended for process engineers, technologists, operating and supervisory personnel engaged in the refining activities who have a minimum of experience and who are required to understand and discuss issues related to their processes

As well as engineering, this training session will also be suitable for business, sales, technical, and scientific personnel with limited or no broad refinery operating experience, along with Technical sales personnel; those involved in selling equipment or supplies to the refining industry and those involved with economic evaluations of refinery operations will benefit from this training session
