Hydrocarbon Processing has covered refining events large and small in
its storied history. To provide an illustration of the
more things change, the more they stay the same, have a
look at the HPImpact section from November 1974. Back in 1974,
people were talking about oil shale. Liquefied natural
gas pipelines were being discussed. Controversy raged about
offshore drilling. Fuel oil deliveries were declining in
Europe. Kind of sounds like the news of today, doesnt it?
