Continuing the tradition and high standards set by earlier editions, Petroleum Refining, Fourth Edition summarizes recent developments in oil refining processes, addressing topics ranging from basic applications to the implementation of viable operations that meet environmental and economic stipulations.

Maintaining the clear and systematic style of presentation that sent the previous editions into more than 25 printings, Petroleum Refining, Fourth Edition

  • Incorporates valuable statistics on utility data, investment, and operating costs for estimating the economics of refining configurations!
  • Describes petroleum's physical and chemical properties
  • Satisfies "short-term" demands from recent legal standpoints for creating reformulated fuels
  • Reviews petroleum-refining technology and all the major refining processes
  • Considers environmental concerns, the place of reformulated fuels in product distribution, and uses for heavier crude oils and crude oils with higher sulfur and metal contents
  • Enables complete material balances to be made from physical properties and typical yield data

    Advancing the successful features that led to the adoption of previous editions at numerous colleges and universities, including Harvard University, the Colorado School of Mines, the University of Houston, and the University of Pittsburgh, the Fourth Edition also offers

  • End-of-chapter problems, equations, illustrative tables, notes, and bibliographies
  • An ongoing case-study problem
  • Convenient and helpful appendices on an economic evaluation problem, terminology, physical properties, analyses of selected crude oils, and photographs

    Written by experts combining academic and professional experience, Petroleum Refining, Fourth Edition is an essential text for all upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education students taking courses in petroleum-refinery processing. It also serves as a helpful resource for chemical, petroleum, refining, and process design engineers; refinery management personnel; and energy consultants.
