Ch. 5— The Petroleum Refining Industry. 87 and each refinery has been built to process a cer-tain type of crude oil (or “slate” of crudes) to pro-duce the products required for a defined market.7 Markets for specific products change constant-ly, and existing refineries are modified or new refineries are built to accommodate such changes. Our empirical analysis focuses on the US petroleum refining industry using data on industry consolidation and wholesale gasoline prices collected over the interval Fundamentals of Petroleum Refining presents the fundamentals of thermodynamics and kinetics, and it explains the scientific background essential for understanding refinery operations. The text also provides a detailed introduction to refinery engineering topics, ranging from the basic principles and unit operations to overall refinery economics. An oil refinery or petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is transformed and refined into more useful products such as petroleum naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, liquefied petroleum gas, jet fuel and fuel oils. Petrochemicals feed stock like ethylene and propylene can also be produced directly by cracking crude oil without the need.

Petroleum refining processes are the chemical engineering processes and other facilities used in petroleum refineries (also referred to as oil 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.. Refineries are very large industrial complexes that involve many different processing units.
LUKOIL processes gas and natural gas liquids at three gas processing plants (GPPs) in West Siberia, Timan-Pechora and Volga regions, as well as at the Perm Refinery and on the site of Stavrolen petrochemical complex in the Stavropol Territory. The Group’s gas processing plants process the associated petroleum gas produced by LUKOIL into liquid hydrocarbons and marketable gas. Since , CB&I has been awarded more than gas plant projects including over turbo-expander plants with our patented Randall Gas process technology and proprietary know-how, providing in excess of 26 BSCFD of gas processing capacity worldwide with capacities ranging from 10 to 1, , Lummus Technology has been awarded more than gas plant projects, .
