This one-day workshop is designed to follow on from our popular Fundamentals of Petroleum Refining course, by focusing on the topics of refinery economics and blending. The course reviews the fundamentals of refining planning and optimisation, and delegates will learn what affects refinery profitability, how margins are calculated and the trends in refining and product demand. We 'll also cover product specifications, blending and valuation.
