Preface to Fundamentals of Petroleum and Petrochemical Engineering

Modern civilization cannot think of a day without petroleum and petrochemicals. Petroleum fuels, such as gasoline, and diesel are the major fuels for all transportation vehicles.

Commodities manufactured from petrochemicals, for example, plastics, rubbers, and synthetic fibers derived from petroleum, have become part and parcel of our daily life.

The absence of petroleum will cause an end to our modern civilization unless alternative means are available. In fact, petroleum is a non-renewable fossilized mass, the amount of which is being exhausted with our increasing consumption.

Future crude oil will be heavier and contaminated with unwanted salts and metals. Production and processing will be costlier than ever before.

Therefore, it is inevitable to make use of this dwindling natural resource more judiciously and efficiently for the sustenance of our civilization.

The contents of this book have been prepared to provide a holistic working knowledge about petroleum and petrochemical technology.

Chapter 1 presents the essential preliminaries for the exploration and production of crude petroleum oil and gas. This chapter is an introduction for beginners who may be entering the profession of oil and gas exploration and production.

Chapter 2 is an analysis of crude oil and petroleum products. This will help scientists entering the profession as chemists in a refinery. The processing of petroleum in refineries is discussed in Chapter 3 and may be useful for apprentice engineers in a refinery.

The fundamentals of lubricating oil and grease are dealt with in Chapter 4, which is useful for engineers and scientists entering the lubricant industries.

Chapter 5 discusses the fundamentals of petrochemicals, their raw materials, and the end products, along with the manufacturing principles of some of the industrially important products.

This chapter may be important for the engineer who is likely to follow a profession in petrochemical plants.

The rest of the book, from Chapters 6 through 15, will be of common interest to engineers in refineries and petrochemical plants.

Chapters 6 to 12 deal with the theories and problems of unit operations and the processes involved in refi neries and petrochemical plants.

The essential knowledge of automatic operations in a plant is dealt with in Chapter 13. Without this knowledge, engineers will not be successful in operating any plant.

Chapter 14 deals with various miscellaneous activities, like startup, shutdown, maintenance, fire, and safety operations, which are essential to the running of any plant.

Chapter 15 discusses the commercial and managerial activities that any engineer has to know for the ultimate success of refining or manufacturing businesses.
