Reminder - Reserve Your Seat Today! Rotterdam Gasoline and Diesel Blending Course (May 23-25, 2016)

This deceptive green gizmo is an octane knock engine! If you blend 50,000 bbls of gasoline, about 1 billion US Dollars worth of gasoline pass through its guts !!! And, it requires tender loving care like a Stradivarius violin…

Now, for the serious part: the world-famous Gasoline and Diesel Blending course is exceptionally timed to deal with low crude oil and product prices, including valuing blendstocks, pricing off-specs, and using blend optimizers to "squeeze" the last drop of money out of a blend.

 What makes it world-famous? The experience of the Course Director, me, Ara Barsamian – President and CEO, Refinery Automation Institute, USA; ex-Exxon Group Head, Blending & Oil Movements R&D, Senior Member AIChE, ASTM, ISA, IBIA, and world’s foremost expert on gasoline, diesel, and bunker fuel blending
