The purpose of this paper is to develop and implement an integrated framework for planning and optimising petroleum supply chain (SC). The framework consists of two stages; first-stage is to address mathematically the strategic planning and the optimisation of the extracted oil which is needed within the petroleum supply chain. While the second stage focuses on the operational planning of the refinery area using a combined discrete and continues simulation modelling techniques. The simulation model considered the following factors: Input Rate, Oil Quality, Distillation Capacity and Number of Failed Separators which are analysed against the performance measures: Total Products and Equipment Utilisation. The results obtained from the experiment are analysed statistically using SPSS Program.
