Petroleum Engineering

 Petroleum refining processes are the chemical engineering processes and other facilities used in petroleum refineries to transform crude oil into useful products such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline or petrol, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel oil and fuel oils. Petroleum refineries are very large industrial complexes that involve many different processing units and auxiliary facilities such as utility units and storage tanks. Each refinery has its own unique arrangement and combination of refining processes largely determined by the refinery location, desired products and economic considerations. Crude Oil Distillation unit, Naphtha hydrotreater unit, Catalytic reforming unit, Isomerization unit, Distillate hydrotreater, Fluid catalytic cracking, Hydrocracker unit, Visbreaker unit are some the processing units used for the refining process.
