I have a BA degree in International Studies and an MBA in Finance. I have been in market and competitor analysis with energy consulting firms and operating companies for 28 years.

I have relied on this book every step of the way.

Do not expect to get a detailed understanding of how refining works. If that is what you are seerking, you're not in the right place (hint: read the title!). What this spelndid little book does is give a business person enough background to understand the various processes, both individually and as part of the flow from crude oil to, for example gasoline. How good is this book? Well, it has been in continuous publication for some 20 years.

Very Good overview of petroleum refining. Well written.
I would recommend it, as an introduction text, for every engineer working in an oil refinery.
However, it is not written for process engineers looking a technical book, as the process engineering concepts are not covered and sometimes incorrect.
For example, Leffler states that "the perforations permit the vapors to rise through the column and the liquids to fall" to explain how distillation perforated trays work. Liquid flow through the perforations has to be avoided (this is called "tray dumping").

Takes the different processes and breaks them down into terms that lay people can use and understand. A copy was purchased for every control room in our unit

Format: Hardcover
Very well-written book on petroleum refining, with a lot of graphs, pictures and explanations. For a petroleum specialist it might be a little too basic, but if you are not directly involved in oil refining in your day-to-day activities - this book is a very well presented material, covering all modern refining processes. Highly recommend to read.

I bought this book because I changed my job and moved to a technical assistance to sales position. I have a MBA Chemical Engineering background and in the earlier years of my carrier I designed equipment for chemical industry so I found the few tecnicalities inside the book pretty easy to understand.
In my new job I am supposed to visit refineries I needed to brush up my technical language in order to establish effective communication channels with our customers.
I think the book was a very good purchase because it gave me the right information at the right level of detail I was looking for.
