In the petroleum processing, the organic chlorides in crude oil can cause the leakage for chlorine corrosion, the blockage of ammonium chloride crystal, and the poisoning of catalyst, which is a significant challenge to the safe production of clean fuel. The present review paper discusses the present situation of hazards to refining equipments caused by organic chlorides in China’s refineries, involving primary processing and secondary processing units. The measures and experiences in preventing organochlorine hazards in Chinese refineries are also introduced.
