Clearly divided into three main sections, this practical book familiarizes readers with the area of planning in petroleum refining and petrochemical industry, while introducing several planning and modeling strategies encompassing single site refinery plants, multiple refinery networks, petrochemical networks, and refinery and petrochemical planning systems. It equally provides an insight into possible research directions and recommendations for the area of refinery and petrochemical planning.
Furthermore, several appendices are included to explain the general background necessary, including stochastic programming, chance constraint programming, and robust optimization.
For engineers and managers working in the petroleum industry as well as academic researchers in production, logistics, and supply chain management.

Dr. Khalid Al-Qahtani is a senior process engineer at Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabia. He holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Waterloo.
