The Refining Economics course is designed to teach fundamentals of refining economics to non-refiners or to those newly introduced to refining. A technical background is not necessary to understand course materials and the course should be useful to financing or marketing individuals who have some involvement with refining or petroleum products. Similarly a marketing background is not critical and the course may be helpful to refinery engineers who would like to understand how world markets affect their refineries and why other types of refineries exist.
