Industrial Hazard and Environmental Pollution
- a. Brief overview of Course
The course is basically designed to introduce basic economic principles in the oil and gas sector, technical considerations in the development of oil and gas field, and understand the economic models used in venturing into an oil and gas venture.
- b. Course Objectives/Goals
At the end of the course, students should be able to:
- Acquaint themselves with simple economic principles in upstream operations
- Understand the decision theory and profitability criteria’s required before venturing into an oils and gas operations, the student will hopefully know the rudiments and decision to drill a well or not from economics point of view.

Petroleum Refinery EngineeringCOVENANT UNIVERSITY COURSE COMPACT FOR 2014/2015 ACADEMIC SESSION College: Engineering Department: Petroleum Engineering Programme: Petroleum Engineering Course Code: PET 525 Course Title: Petroleum Refining Engineering/Petrochemical Technology Units: 3 Course Lecturers: Dr. Anawe P.A.L. and Prof. Denloye Semester: Omega Time: Location: P28 (Chemical/Petroleum Engineering Building) a. Brief Overview of course Petroleum Refining is the physical, thermal and chemical separation of crude oil into its major distillation fractions which are then further processed through a series of separation and conversion steps into finished petroleum products. Crude oil is a naturally occurring, flammable liquid found in rock formations in the earth consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons of various molecular weights, other organic compounds plus some inorganic compounds – O, N, S, metals Ni, V, etc. The quality of the crude oil dictates the level of processing and reprocessing necessary to achieve the optional mix of product output. Brief talk on petroleum chemistry to enable proper understanding of the various conversion processes. b. Course Objectives/Goals During and at the end of the course, students should be able to: 1. The importance of petroleum/gas to modern civilization 2. The various types of crude oils light/heavy and how they are processed into economically useful products; 3. Details of various catalysts used in refining processes; 4. Characteristics of various finished products 5. Handling, storage, transportation and usage of some; 6. Details of hazards and the necessary measures to be taken to avert danger and keep safe c. Methods of Lecture Delivery/Teaching Aids * Visual Aids (use of Power Point slides, Lecture template-handouts) * Framed pictures of real refineries – meaning 1m2 * Sample of bottled crude oil * Audiovisual Aids * Crude oil types for different refinery configurations * Introduction to refinery equipment refraction rating coloms, heat exchangers, dehydrators, desalters, storage facilities for crudes and finished product. Flow sheets, plates Atm distillation units, vacuum units, base oils (different groups) catalyst cracking, catalyst reforming, hydro cracking, alkylation product blending and usage, octane Number, cetane Number. Gasoline properties and blending, JET fuel (jet-A1), Gas distillate fuels: heating oil, lubricants and greases, asphalts (bitumen). * Visbreaking, residual processes polities of oil + gas processing OPEC, APPA, etc. petrochemical raw materials from the refeneries, LPGas – propane, butane, natural gas, methane, propane, butane, ethylene, benzene, zylene, toluene, tec, LDPE HDPE, LAB, Carbon black. d. Tutorials Extra lectures with special questions to widen the horizon of the student. Advanced Refinery Technology such as ultra-low NOx burners and new generation catalysts, has enabled the production of increasing cleaner fuels while generating less and facilities, etc. e. Structure of the Programme/Method of Grading Assignment/term paper - 10% Test - 20% Final Exam - 70% f. Ground Rules and Regulation/Discipline * Foolscap size exercise book for notes * Notes to be submitted for grading before mid-semester test and end of semester test * Disciplinary action will be taken against lateness to class and absenteeism g.

Brief overview of Course
Introduction to petroleum engineering as a course deals on World energy and introduces the students to the origin of hydrocarbons as a source of energy. It also deals with the various types of hydrocarbon and their respective characteristics. After that, the various phases and process involved in the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbon is expatiated. The economics, contracts and agreement involved in the sale of Petroleum is dealt with. The course then terminates with knowledge of various units and dimensions used in the upstream oil and gas industry as well as journal publications.
At the end of the course, students should be able to: Understand the various types of kerogen and how they are formed; Have a firm knowledge on the history of the oil and gas industry; understand the various phases involved in Petroleum engineering. Understand the various forms of agreements and contracts obtainable in the upstream oil and gas industry as well as the economics involved; Have the necessary knowledge on journals and publications as well as the field units used in the upstream oil and gas industry. The Objectives are:
- To obtain an understanding of the activity of vertically integrated oil and gas company
- To review the oil and gas exploration processes, deposits research, drilling, extraction, transportation, processing of crude oil and gas, refining, and sale of products
- To give a short overview of forms of agreements between companies and the government, as well as to review relevant taxation issues
- To discuss risk aspects of oil and gas industry
