This is the 2nd edition of the refinery process guide
and it is the continuation of the 1st edition produced in 2003.
The refinery process guide gives an overview of most of the refinery
process technologies used in refineries around the world.
The new topics that have been added are Oil Movements and
Product Blending, Waste and Water Treatment, Process Control and Optimization
Furthermore, a section on the refinery organization has
been added. These are essential areas that are equally challenging
as the process technologies used to convert black gold to valuable
products. Also, as the saying goes “A picture paints a thousand
words”, as an addition to the 1st edition, there are refinery
pictures included of the various refinery processes that can be found at
Don's note: "With crude oil price and gas prices shooting thru the roof, it is more important we all learn about the oil refinery process. This second edition
guide is complete yet easy reading with new refinery pictures."
It provides an extensive and deep knowledge as well as
description of the technology and is catered for chemical engineering
students training, refinery technician, as well as those non technical
people wanting to have a “feel” of refinery technology.
This 61 page 2nd Edition e-book, caters very well for refinery process,
maintenance and operations staff, chemical engineering students and
technical sales staff of vendors who need an understanding of the
business the business their customers is in. As a traveling sales
person, you’ll find this a ‘must have on the laptop’ before
visiting any refinery.
The Guide to Refinery Process Technologies 2nd Edition is comprehensive and at
the same time compact and therefore makes an excellent hand-out for
The same 30 slide free power point presentation given with
the 1st edition
on Refinery Management is included with this 2nd Edition: ‘Process Engineering
Discipline’. This presentation is the wrap-up of a study that
Hardeep Hundal has undertaken on the roles and reporting lines of the
refinery process engineers. A solid benchmark to evaluate your own
process engineering structure against.
