November 1, 2016 Susquehanna Section Dinner/Presentation: Refinery 101

November 1, 2016 @ 10:30 pm - November 2, 2016 @ 1:30 am


Topic: Refinery 101



One of our most important Industrial Sectors is Oil and Gas. It currently supports 9.8 million workers with more jobs being added. A key part of this is refineries, which turn crude oil into transportation fuel, heating oils, waxes, lubricants, and an entire host of petrochemicals. A refinery can appear overwhelming. There are tanks, pipes, pumps, compressors, motor, turbine, heat exchangers, instruments, controls and other equipment. The purpose of this talk is to explain what a refinery does, and how the major units, processes and equipment make it happen. Even if you are not currently involved in the O&G business, it’s an interesting topic for any engineer
