Petroleum refining processes are the chemical engineering processes and other facilities used in petroleum refineries (also referred to as oil refineries) to transform crude oil into useful products such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline or petrol, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel oil and fuel oils.

Refineries are very large industrial complexes that involve many different processing units. Petroleum Refining in Nontechnical Language, Fourth Edition: Petroleum Refining Book & Chart Set MSRP: $ Was: $ Thermal and catalytic processes in petroleum refining.

Petroleum Refining. Petroleum refining is a technology that uses fossil fuels as raw materials and chemical catalysts as a means to achieve conversion of petroleum through once, twice, and deep processing to get a series of chemical products, which are further used as the basic raw materials for synthetic fibers, synthetic rubber, plastics, chemical fertilizers and pesticides production.

This book gave an excellent overview of petroleum refining without getting bogged down in minutiae or droning on in the style of dry reference tomes. The author reminds us once in a while that he is human with a witty blurb here and there/5. This book presents a thorough understanding of petroleum refining processes by discussing some of the significant topics in the field like the extraction procedures, design and maintenance of petroleum refineries, distillation of petroleum and petrochemicals, etc.

For 45 years, William Leffler's Petroleum Refining in Nontechnical Language has been the go-to best seller for anyone needing to know the fundamentals of refining.

Fluid prose, easy-to-understand graphics, and helpful analogies (like the "beer bottle principle") make the refining processing schemes clear. Petroleum refiners must face billion-dollar investments in equipment in order to meet ever-changing environmental requirements.

Because the design and construction of new processing units entail several years' lead time, refiners are reluctant to commit these dollars for equipment that may no longer meet certain conditions when the units come on stream/5.
