Abstract: 

OIL PLAYS A VAST AND VITAL ROLE IN OUR SOCIETY AS IT IS ORGANIZED TODAY. OIL REPRESENTS MUCH MORE THAN JUST ONE OF THE MAIN ENERGY SOURCES USED BY MANKIND. BESIDES BEING AN IMPORTANT ENERGY SOURCE, PETROLEUM PRODUCTS SERVE AS FEEDSTOCK FOR SEVERAL CONSUMER GOODS, THUS PLAYING A GROWING AND RELEVANT ROLE IN PEOPLE'S LIVES. ON THE OTHER HAND, THE OIL INDUSTRY HOLDS A MAJOR POTENTIAL OF HAZARDS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, AND MAY IMPACT IT AT DIFFERENT LEVELS: AIR, WATER, SOIL, AND CONSEQUENTLY ALL LIVING BEINGS ON OUR PLANET. WITHIN THIS CONTEXT, THE MOST WIDESPREAD AND DANGEROUS CONSEQUENCE OF OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY ACTIVITIES IS POLLUTION. POLLUTION IS ASSOCIATED WITH VIRTUALLY ALL ACTIVITIES THROUGHOUT ALL STAGES OF OIL AND GAS PRODUCTION, FROM EXPLORATORY ACTIVITIES TO REFINING. ON THE OTHER HAND, DESPITE ITS POTENTIAL THREATS TO THE ENVIRONMENT, THE OIL INDUSTRY PLAYS A POSITIVE ROLE IN SOCIETY AS WELL, CREATING MANY JOBS AND GENERATING A SIGNIFICANT VOLUME OF TAX REVENUES AND ROYALTIES TO NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS. TAKING THE ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLE INTO ACCOUNT IN PRODUCTIVE PROCESSES HAS BEEN A SERIOUS AND IMPORTANT CHALLENGE FOR THE OIL INDUSTRY. THIS PAPER BY USING DESCRIPTIVE AND ANALYTICAL METHODS AND OVERVIEW STUDIES, TO DESCRIBE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF OIL REFINERIES AND APPROPRIATE SOLUTIONS ARE OFFERED TO REDUCE THE IMPACTS.
