Petroleum refining involves refining crude petroleum as well as producing raw materials for the petrochemical industry. This book covers current refinery processes and process-types that are likely to come on-stream during the next three to five decades. The book includes (1) comparisons of conventional feedstocks with heavy oil, tar sand bitumen, and bio-feedstocks; (2) properties and refinability of the various feedstocks; (3) thermal processes versus hydroprocesses; and (4) the influence of refining on the environment.

". . . there is little omitted that one would need to know about petroleum refining, from crude oil itself through LNG to bitumen. . . this one I can totally praise and recommend to anyone wishing to know more about the oil industry."
