Why Choose this Training Course?

 This Refinery Process Yield Optimisation training course will present a detailed overview of refining process yields, from the crude oil feed to the finished products. It is targeted at personnel directly involved in refining utilization and optimization, including but not limited to refining technologists and operations personnel as well as non-technical personnel interested in these processes or involved in refinery planning.

All the major refining processes are explored and examined with a view of understanding and appreciating how each unit relates to each other whilst at the same time, how these relationships can enhance refinery operations.

Major refining processes are presented and discussed, including feedstock, feedstock preparation, operating conditions, catalysts, product properties and refinery yields. Refining economics will be included as means to optimizing refining operations and profitability.

The Refining & Petrochemicals training course is oriented toward the practical aspects of refinery operations and yield optimization and includes the terminology used in the industry.
