Russian Petroleum Refinery Handbook

Mikhail Rudin
Worley Parsons

Description

This volume is a compilation of information relating to the "what," "where," and "when" of the refining industry in the former USSR. It contains a comprehensive collection of up-to-date intelligence on former USSR refineries, including history, process flow description, lists of process units, design and actual (as of 1996) capacities. The book reviews research and engineering companies involved in the petroleum refinery and petrochemical business, covering the evaluation of FSU crude oils, commercial petroleum products, refinery process units, characteristics of off-site facilities, and much more. A large part of the book is devoted to equipment and materials employed in the FSU refineries. The handbook represents specifications and regulations that are effective for personnel and plant safety, and for environmental concerns.
