An intensive professional development training course on

Oil Production and Processing Facilities

Why Choose this Training Course?

This comprehensive 5-day training course concentrates on oil & gas production and subsequent treatment surface facility operations and processes. The course covers the entire oil & gas value chain from discovery, exploration and transportation through to refining and finally sales to downstream industries. An overview and fundamental understanding of the wide range of oilfield production handling and treatment equipment will be presented as well as new technologies.

This course emphasises oil and gas production facilities both onshore and offshore - from the wellhead to delivery of an on-specification crude oil to the refinery or natural gas to downstream users. Produced water treating facilities are introduced and discussed and includes coverage of water injection systems. In addition to the engineering aspects of oil production facilities, practical operating problems will also be covered, including treatment of emulsions, handling of sand, dealing with wax and asphaltenes, natural gas dehydration and sweetening and refinery processing.

 

What are the Goals?

In this training course you will:

  • Learn the origins and chemical characteristics of Oil & Gas
  • Understand the challenges associated with offshore operations, horizontal drilling and other safety concerns
  • Familiarize the participants with various methods and techniques used to explore, drill, produce, treat and transport Oil, Gas and their products
  • Introduce the participants to upstream, mid-stream and downstream operations
  • Appreciate Oil & Natural Gas treatment technologies and processes including produced water treatment
  • Learn the many processes involved in crude oil refining and how these contribute to refinery complexity and profitability
  • Gain valuable knowledge of Gas Sweetening and Physical Solvents Unit Troubleshooting

 

Who is this Training Course for?

This course is suitable to a wide range of professionals within the Oil and Gas Industries but will greatly benefit:

  • Chemical, Mechanical engineers and Process Technologists,
  • Facility and Inspection engineers
  • Maintenance or project engineers
  • Operations and Laboratory Chemists
  • Technicians, support engineers and engineering trainees
  • Consultants and Sales professionals

 

How will this be Presented?

To ensure the concepts introduced during the program are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentations, short videos, open discussion, case studies, and group work.

This highly interactive, stimulating course will be augmented with presenter led opportunities for advancing the participants’ opinions and ideas by discussions and workshops, and syndicate exercises and examples.
