Refinery

Includes all oil fractionation and enrichment processes that make its various components available for further industrial operations, such as petrochemical processes, or for use as fuel for civil and industrial use and to produce energy. The refineries are normally located onshore in strategic locations and receive the liquid hydrocarbons obtained in the Oil & Gas production plants. The main processes are:
