July 17th Presentation: “Petroleum Refining in Nontechnical Language” Video Presentation
A 55-minute video by Dr. William Leffler
Energy issues are increasingly challenging us each day. Refining plays a critical role in supply-and-demand and remains a vital component of our energy infrastructure. Dr. William Leffler is an industry veteran and author with more than 45 years of experience in the petroleum industry in upstream, downstream, and petrochemicals sectors. Leffler’s video presentation breaks down basic principles of refining as he walks through the refining process one procedure at a time. The first part of the video discusses the history of petroleum refining, from the oil patch to refinery and focuses on crude oil processes. The second section examines gasoline refining.
