Why Choose this Training Course?

Petroleum coke, or pet coke, is a product produced from all types of oil (light/heavy crudes) during the oil refining process. Many unconventional products are extracted from a barrel of crude oil in addition to gasoline, diesel, and jet fuels; and petroleum coke is one of them. Originally, it was produced in the 1930s and is considered as a valuable and essential commercial product that is used directly in a wide range of applications including aluminum manufacturing, fuels, and numerous other products including steel, glass, paint, and fertilizers. Petroleum coke is also used as a fuel in power generation, cement kilns and other industries.
