Level :Foundation

COURSE CONTENT

  • PETROLEUM PRODUCTS
    • Energy and non-energy products and their main uses, CO2emissions and main regulated pollutants in the end use.
    • Principal components of petroleum products; general hydrocarbon classification and main impurities (sulfur, nitrogen, metals and asphaltenes, etc.).
    • Quality requirements imposed on petroleum products in view of their utilization: quality specifications measured by standard tests, characteristics related to the product composition, origin and processing routes.
    • New trends in market structure and product characteristics to European and worldwide scale, post-combustion depollution systems, biofuels (nature, alternative fuel pathways for transport, strengths and weaknesses).
  • REFINING PROCESSES
    • Crude oil fractionation:
    • Origin, overall characteristics and classification of crude oils.
    • Yields and properties of straight-run cuts obtained by distillation, potential destinations.
    • Industrial units: atmospheric distillation, vacuum distillation, light-ends fractionation.
    • Typical process scheme, operating conditions, energy consumption.
    • Catalytic reforming and isomerization:
    • Octane improvement of virgin naphthas.
    • Basics of processes, types of catalyst, product yields and hydrogen production.
    • Industrial units: process flowsheets, operating conditions, equipment, low pressure processes.
    • Hydrorefining processes:
    • Main features of impurities removal by catalytic hydrogen treatment.
    • Main refining applications.
    • Example of ULSD hydrotreatment unit: operating principles, operating conditions.
    • Scrubbing treatments: amine washing, sulfur production, treatment of residual gases from Claus units.
    • Conversion units:
    • Outline of conversion and various cracking processes.
    • Characteristics and origin of feeds for cracking.
    • Conversion by means of thermal cracking: visbreaker, various cokers.
    • Conversion by means of catalytic cracking: FCC and related units, gasoline sweetening and desulfurization, alkylation, production of MTBE, ETBE and propylene, hydrocracker and related units, hydrogen production (SMR, POX).
    • Recent developments in hydrotreatment and hydroconversion of heavy residues.
    • Hydrogen balance in the refinery, energy consumption per unit, CO2emissions at the outlet of the refinery.
    • Other processes for production of petroleum products: GTL, synthetic crude oils.
  • MANUFACTURING FLOWSHEETS
    • Main routes to major products.
    • Up to date refining schemes including the production of petrochemical intermediate products.
    • Impacts of the evolution of market demand and the quality of the products on manufacturing patterns.
    • Base lube oil manufacturing.
    • Virtual visit of a refinery using the augmented reality will enable the trainees to gain a direct understanding of the field life.
  • MAIN ECONOMIC FEATURES OF REFINERY OPERATION
    • Prices of crude oils and products, operating costs, economic margin of a refinery.
    • Examples of flexibility in operation and its economic consequences.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
