A look at the refined petroleum products' industry along with a view on the various processes involved during the entire petroleum refining process, such as distillation, alkylation, hydroprocessing, etc.
Focusing on Energy Consumption of the Petroleum Refining Industry
CO: Caltex Petroleum Corporation; Star Petroleum Refining
Management stated that the sale of the refineries was one of the final steps necessary to refocus the company on its gas gathering, processing and marketing business and disposing of its petroleum refining
is a diversified energy corporation engaged in petroleum refining
, transportation and marketing; retail gasoline marketing; motor oil marketing; chemicals; coal; highway construction; and oil and gas exploration and production.
Petroleum refining has evolved continuously in response to changing consumer demand for better and different products.
Aruvian Research's report Profiling the US Petroleum Refining Industry analyzes the US petroleum refining industry starting from the basics.
16 /PRNewswire/ --Ten independent petroleum refining
and marketing companies have formed the Independent Refiner/Marketers Association (IRMA) to represent its members' views on legislative and regulatory matters, according to Jack Pester, senior vice president of Coastal Corporation (NYSE: CGP), and newly elected president of IRMA.
This is expected to create a demand for refined reformulated and less-polluting gasolines, and encourage refineries to invest resources into renovating their petroleum refining catalysis processes to adhere to the regulatory standards.
All of these factors, among several others, spell out attractive opportunities for petroleum refining catalysts.
