  • Duration: One Week
  • City: London
  • Fees: Classroom: 5200 GBP / Online: 2600 GBP



This advanced training course will highlight a detailed overview of refining process yields, from the crude oil feed to the finished products.
Most refining processes are presented and discussed, including feedstock, feedstock preparation, operating conditions, catalysts, yields, product properties, and economics.
The course is aimed toward the practical aspects of refinery operations as well as the terminology and economics of refining.


• Act as a primer into the industry of Petroleum Refining to maximise process fluid yields.
• Familiarize industry professionals with all processes associated with the processing of petroleum into finished products.
• Equip new engineers into the industry, with the basic tools for understanding the complex nature of Refining and its operations.
