World proven reserves for conventional and light oils are in decline and economic production, processing and use of such oils require optimum design and operation of related equipment. Proper characterization and property estimation of crude oils, petroleum fractions and their products are key in such optimum design and operation of equipment for production, processing and use of these oils. This is a one-hour webinar for those involved in conventional oil processing and recovery, transportation and product quality control. We will briefly review properties, specifications and related characterization techniques which are needed for process design and unit operation in both processing and production sectors for light and medium oils. In particular we discuss physical, thermal and transport properties as well as properties related to the quality of petroleum products. In addition blending techniques to meet specific requirements for various fuels will be discussed.
The following topics will be discussed:
The fee is $99 per person. After purchasing you will receive an email within a few hours with information about how to access the webinar.
