Course Description

Refinery Process Fundamentals - Hybrid

Course Overview

This course provides a broad overview of the fundamentals of refinery operation and production. Using the refinery schematic, key processes are examined both as individual units and in the context of the refinery as a whole. The course material illustrates how each process works to turn crude into commercially viable products.

We will be offering this course both in person and virtually. Virtual participants will log on during the live course, which meets during Central Standard Time.

1 week prior to the start of the course, we will provide the Teams meeting link via E-mail.

This course is not scheduled, please contact us at here for more information.
