World Congress on Petroleum Processing and Industrial Chemistry

Theme: Straddling the gap between miles & milestone.

Importance & Scope:

Petroleum is a natural occurring material mainly made of hydrocarbons found below the Earth’s surface. It is found by drilling down through rocks on land or off-shore on the continental shelf. Major producers of petroleum are in the Middle East, the Americas, and Russia. It is the most important fuel source that the worlds use. It supplies 38% of the world's energy and is also used to make petrochemicals.

Petroleum Refining Industry generally refines crude oil into petroleum products. Refining of Petroleum involves: fractionation, straight distillation of crude oil and cracking. Petroleum is sold as fuel oil and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). China and Japan are amongst the top two countries that consume the most petroleum throughout the world; together they account for 20% of total global usage.

Petroleum refineries have goal to convert as much of the barrel of crude oil into transportation fuels which is economically practical. Refineries produce many profitable products such as the transportation fuel gasoline, turbine (jet) fuels, diesel and the light heating oils. These are counted as the high-volume profitable products of refineries.

Industry Product:

  • Gasoline
  • Diesel fuel oil
  • Jet fuel
  • Heating oil
  • Propane
  • kerosene
  • Lubricants
  • Liquefied petroleum gases
  • Residual fuel oil
  • Other refined petroleum products

Industry Activities

  • Gasoline production
  • Kerosene production
  • Distillate fuel oil (diesel fuel) production
  • Aviation fuel production
  • Residual fuel oil production
  • Lubricant production
  • Producing aliphatic and aromatic chemicals as by products

Numerous statistics indicate positive trends in the midstream and downstream oil markets. This study examines supply, consumption, and distribution of transportation fuels in Petroleum Administration for Defense Districts (PADDs) - the U.S. East Coast (PADDs-1) and the Gulf Coast (PADDs-3).
The East Coast is divided as: New England, Central Atlantic, the Southeast, and Florida.
The Gulf Coast is divided as: New Mexico, Texas Inland, Texas Gulf Coast, Louisiana Gulf Coast, and North Louisiana-Arkansas.

The Gulf Coast (PADD 3) is the largest domestic supplier of transportation fuels whereas the East Coast (PADD 1) is the largest transportation fuels consuming region in the country.

Pipeline infrastructure links the two PADDs- the East Coast & the Gulf Coast. Here the International trade play key roles in balancing the mismatch between supply and use of transportation fuels within each region.
