The book begins with an account of refining in 19th Century USA and goes on to give an account of refining across the world at the present time. Details of hundreds of refineries including their capacities are given. Reforming, cracking and ‘visbreaking’ are given some emphasis as is the related issue of refining depth. The Nelson complexity index features frequently in the book and there are several related calculations. Equivalent distillation capacity (EDC) also features. Illustrations include one the largest oil refinery in the world, the Jamnagar Refinery in India.
