The statistic shows the development of global refinery capacity for crude oil from the year 1970 to 2014, measured in thousand barrels per day. In 1990, the world’s oil refinery capacity was around 74 million barrels per day and nowadays this figure has been risen to daily production of 96,51 million barrel*.
Raw or unprocessed crude oil is not generally useful in industrial applications. It is then separated into fractions by fractional distillation to get lighter and more useful products. The refinery processes the crude oil and converts it in by-products such as petroleum naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, paraffin, kerosene, LPG and many others for their energy or chemical content. Latest pumping technologies and solutions provided by Western Energy are able to cover entirely the versatile range of petroleum refinery applications. From simply crude oil or by-products transfer to high pressure ranges, low NPSH or toxic liquids applications handling. Designed according to American Petroleum Institute standards, our rotating equipment meets the most stringent Oil & Gas Industry reliability and safety requirements. Even when it comes to most complex tasks, Western Energy offers complete range of customised engineering services from designing units and systems to providing support throughout the entire processing and commissioning . We are proud to have on our account pumps successfully installed and running at Exxon Mobil, Singapore Refining Company, Shell Pulau Bukom and many more others.
