Petroleum Transportation

The Demand of Oil and Gas force the industry to fulfil the needs around the world. That’s why the transportation of Oil and Gas is really necessary and becoming one of the most important part…

Oil and Gas Hydrotreating Process

Hydrotreating is a process widely used in the petroleum industry for producing high quality fuels and the most common processes from removing sulfur and nitrogen impurities. Today on #PetroKNOWLEDGE we’ll learn oil and gas hydrotreating…

Treating

Treating is all of the refining processes intended to remove unwanted compounds (contaminants) from and improve the properties of certain products to meet the desirable specifications. A common example is: the increase of the octane…

Conversion

The crude oil, which has been heated in Separation Process, will be continued processing to Conversion stage. Basically, Conversion stage will transform size and structure of hydrocarbon molecule. There will be three main processes in…

Cracking

Cracking is a type of conversion process in oil refining, besides combining and modifying. Cracking essentially breaks large hydrocarbon molecules into lighter ones. It was initialized by the high demand of gasoline or other middle…

Separation

In the refinery of crude oil products, there are three main processes, which are: Separation, Conversion, and Treatment. The basic process of separation is mainly heating crude oil inside a distillation tower to separate components…

Demisters

As described, separation is the first step of refining oil and gas. The separators are used to split the flow into desirable fractions.  There are many components of separators, such as demisters Demisters is a…

Oil Refining Stages

Oil refinery or petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is transformed and refined into more useful products such as petroleum naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, liquefied petroleum…
