Refinery treatment processes

Crude oil and its cuts are mainly composed of hydrocarbons. Refinery treatment processes are separation and transformation techniques enabling to extract its different fractions and to produce several products, from gases to asphalts and coke. Depending on the crude oil source, the cuts do not have the same quality and quantity. An industrial unit designed for crude distillation is generally calculated and dimensioned for a defined feeling crude oil. In fact, all new oils have to be prepared to feed the industrial unit with the characteristics needed. Therefore. by mixing different oils, it is possible to feed the refinery with an almost constant composition mixture and have only one industrial unit to process all crude oils. The ASTM standard proposes a procedure to characterize crude oil. This standard enables to compare the obtained results whenever the analysis is done.
