Spatial-based decomposition approach for the crude scheduling problem of a refinery with multiple ports and long-distance pipelines


This work addresses the large-scale crude scheduling problem of a real case refinery importing various types of crude oil from two ports via long-distance pipelines. We employ a spatial-based decomposition approach to construct a two-stage model of the practical refinery operations. During the first stage, the refinery plant is treated as a single… (More)
