Example 101

A coastal refinery processes 180,000 barrels per day of 30.6 API Middle Eastern crude. The capacity of various processing units in mbpd and tonnes/day are shown in Table 10-4. Figure 10-1 shows the overall material balance and product blending schedule of the refinery. Table 10-2 shows the rundown temperatures of base stocks and blended products. Table 10-5 shows the facilities available at the refinery marine terminal. Table 10-1 shows the historic for the distribution of tanker fleet arriving at the terminal for product removal.

The refinery employs a batch blending system. The crude is received into the refinery tankage from the pipeline from oil fields. We want to estimate the tankage requirement for storing crude oil, charge tank capacities, and shipping tankage capacities for the product slate of this refinery.
