Introduction to Petroleum Refinery Processing and Bitumen Upgrading
Calgary, Canada

This 3-day course presents an overview of the modern, integrated petroleum refinery, including crude oil properties, a history of fuel product specifications, and process descriptions. Each refining process will cover operating description and conditions, feedstock and catalyst selection, product yields, and the relationship between process parameters, unit performance and product output and properties. Future operations, in response to changing crude oil quality and product slates and quality, will be discussed. The third day is devoted to a thorough review of the technologies used to process crude oil resid, followed by an overview of tar sand bitumen and heavy oil properties, status of upgrader projects, and the processes employed at the upgrader sites to convert bitumen into sweet “crude.” A complete set of course notes and lunches are included.
