About the course: 

The petroleum refining training course covers the technology aspects you need to know about refineries from the properties and composition of crude oil to the core refining processes including atmospheric and vacuum crude oil distillation, hydrotreating, catalytic reforming, FCC, alkylation, hydrocracking, delayed coking, amine treating and Sulphur recovery and gasoline/diesel blending.

This training aims at improving the attendees’ knowledge and understanding of the principles of operation and decision-making involved in the management of refinery offsite operations, such as crude / fuels (Gasoline, Diesel, Fuel Oil) blending control and optimization, tanks farm management, terminal and custody transfer, oil movement etc.

Advanced process control strategies invariably use linear and non-linear programming methods to solve complex and non-unique process models solutions. These techniques are employed in refinery planning, blend recipe formulations, optimum operating parameters for process units, etc.

This training is ideal for the engineers, technicians, scientists, and operators who are already involved in the industry yet need to know more about the core refining processes to enhance their existing knowledge.

Learning objective:

This training will affirm the existing knowledge and increase learning and comprehension of the various systems of refinery offsite automation, thereby contributing toward efficient and economic management of the operations.

Upon completion of the refining technology training course, the attendees are able to:

  • Understand all the basics about crude oil, including its physical/chemical properties and composition
  • Understand and discuss major refinery processes
  • Describe all the refinery units
  • Understand the flow diagrams of refineries
  • Explain step-by-step the processes of refining
  • Understand the refinery products and their characteristics.

Duration: 15+ hours
