An oil refinery is an exceptionally complex facility where crude oil is processed and refined into more valuable products such as naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, and other products.  As a result of the shear complexity of the refining process, it has been expected that feed stocks and process components could never be balanced, however, our resident  expert has utilized Refinery Stream Modeling techniques to balance these systems.  Here is a very comprehensive overview of the Refinery stream modelling process. If your facility is having issues with accounting for losses and needs help with balancing by all means please contact us.
