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 different products are extracted from a barrel of crude oil in addition to gasoline, diesel and jet fuels. Petroleum coke just one of the many. Petroleum coke is not a new product and has been produced since the 1930s. Petroleum coke is 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.

This PetroKnowledge training course on Petroleum Coke Manufacturing will introduce to the participants the main process of the petroleum coke production, storage and handling of pet coke, the pet coke usage and application and the environmental and health classification of pet coke. This training course provides both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills.

This training course will highlight:

  • Method of pet coke production, Fuel-grade coke and Calcined petroleum coke.
  • Describe the refinery method of production of the petroleum coke
  • Pet coke properties and end uses
