"In the preparation of this thesis the writer has endeavored to describe in a clear, concise and simple manner the general scheme carried out by the Foundation Company in the construction, equipment and operation of the Corona Refinery at Chijol, Veracruz, Mexico.
Under construction, the most interesting features of the work executed by the Field Engineering department have been discussed at some length. Throughout this paper elementary details have been omitted, the casual reader being assumed to possess a knowledge of the fundamental principles of engineering.
No attempt has been made to cover the activities of the allied--mechanical, electrical, architectural--departments of engineering as no single individual in the organization could hope to have the time nor the opportunity to become sufficiently acquainted with all their details of operation to describe them in a comprehensive manner.
The illustrations accompanying this paper have been carefully prepared and are intended as a supplement to the subject matter; it is hoped that they will be found helpful in making the text clear"--Preface, page ii.
