Course Overview

Petroleum refining has been in practice since the year 1738 when it was first reported in Russia that oil was being distilled to finished products. Since then, the art of petroleum refining has evolved to meet industry and government mandates for clean and reformulated fuels.

The economic success of the refining industry has led to the growth that we enjoy today.
