Continuing the high standards set by earlier editions, Petroleum Refining, Fourth Edition summarizes recent developments in oil refining processes, addressing topics ranging from basic applications to the implementation of viable operations that meet environmental and economic requirements. The authors maintain the clear, systematic style that made previous editions so popular. This edition reviews petroleum-refining technology and refining processes, incorporates recent statistics on utility data, investment, and operating costs, and considers environmental factors, the place of reformulated fuels in product distribution, and uses for heavier crude oils and those with higher sulfur and metal.
