Abstract : The estimation of well-to-distributor volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions resulting from the extraction of crude oil in an oilfield, transportation to a crude oil terminal upstream of the refinery, operation of the refinery, and subsequent pipeline and product distribution has previously been approached as a top-down industry-wide average; RP-VOC performs its core calculations using a “from-the-ground-up” approach. By taking this approach, the tool results can be used for the supply network of a single refinery, or to generalize the average performance of all refineries.
