Petroleum Refining Design and Applications Handbook

A. Kayode Coker, Wiley-Scrivener, Hoboken, NJ, $295, 654 pages, Sept. 2018, ISBN: 978-1-118-23369-6


A renaissance in chemical and process engineering is underway. It is as if petroleum refineries have sprung to life — changing, adapting, and growing larger and more complex. New refineries are not being built. Instead, companies are spending their capital retooling and adding on to existing plants. Many refineries may be changed, literally, from year to year, to account for the type of crude being refined or to integrate new equipment or processes.

This book provides comprehensive coverage of the most significant and recent changes to petroleum refining. While it could be used as a textbook, it could also serve as a guide for veteran engineers. The book is divided into 12 chapters that cover the composition of crude oil and petroleum products, process descriptions of refinery processes, hydroprocessing, gas processing and acid gas removal, and much more.
