Fundamentals of Petroleum Refining offers an intensive and balanced intro- duction to refinery engineering matters from primary ideas and unit opera- tions to total refinery economics. Based mostly on the basics of thermodynamics and kinetics, the textual content develops the scientific background wanted for an understanding of refinery operations. It additionally offers an in- depth description of main refinery processes and then assimilates an built-in refinery by specializing in the financial and operational facets needed for enhancing efficiency and profitability.

The authors have over 20 years of expertise educating and consult-ing within the discipline of petroleum refining. Though there are a variety of books on petroleum refining, only a few of them could be thought of appropriate for educating the topic in a way that integrates engineering fundamentals and petroleum refining know-how. Our ebook has extra in-depth protection and extra examples on utilizing computational instruments.

Fundamentals of Petroleum Refining serves each professionals and aca- demics. It’s primarily directed in direction of undergraduate and graduate college students in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, Chemistry and Chemical Tech-nology. School graduates new to the sphere of engineering, who may be beginning their careers within the oil and gasoline business, may also discover the textual content helpful. Professionals and lecturers may also profit from this ebook. For experi-enced engineers and managers, Fundamentals of Petroleum Refining is right for buying the required background within the discipline and understanding new purposes within the refining business.


The ebook contains vital topics which aren’t generally consid-ered in refinery textbooks. Subjects embrace clear fuels, gasification, biofuels and the environmental affect of refining. All through the ebook, quite a few downside units and examples are given with a view to put the basic rules of refining into apply.

Many labored examples provide clear understanding of the lined topics. Excel spreadsheets for property and materials stability calculations assist in performing detailed and repetitive calculations and these are to be discovered at companions/9780444527851. Examples on utilizing course of simulators (UNI-SIM) are additionally offered. The textual content begins with an introduction to the petroleum refining business then focuses on feedstocks and merchandise in Chapters 1 and 2. Chapter 3 covers the topic of calculating the thermophysical properties of crude oils and petroleum fractions. Atmospheric and vacuum distillations are lined in Chapter 4. Main conversion processes are described in Chapters 5–8. These chapters cowl the themes of catalytic reforming and isomerization, coking, hydroconversion (hydrotreating and hydrocracking) and fluid catalytic cracking. Product mixing is roofed in Chapter 9, and alkylation is defined in Chapter 10.

The topic of hydrogen manufacturing, which is of principal significance in a contemporary refinery, is roofed in Chapter 11. Because of the altering vitality outlook in phrases of air pollution laws on burning fuels, clear gasoline manufacturing is mentioned in Chapter 12. An awesome deal of consideration has been given in the previous few years to residue upgrading with a view to enhance the economics of refining. Chapter 13 discusses this problem intimately. Refinery security can also be an vital subject and is totally reviewed in Chapter 14. Acid gasoline therapy and removing are mentioned in Chapter 15. The elements associated to refinery economics are reviewed in Chapter 16. Environmental and effluent therapy strategies are mentioned in Chapter 17. An total case research is given in Chapter 18.
