Why Choose this Training Course? 

This PetroKnowledge training course is designed to provide an understanding of the types of bulk liquid vessels which are used and the reasons for the differences between them. It also looks at the cargo operations to be conducted and the critical elements of these operations. As Part of the operations the methodology of maintaining the cargo in optimum conditions are examined. Many cargoes are extremely specialized and therefore are very expensive. Loss of cargo to mismanagement is completely avoidable if it is properly managed. By understanding the type of cargo, the hazards it presents and the management processes, it is possible to minimize the risk of cargo spoiling, pollution and incorrect vessel selection thus making for a more efficient and cost effective overall operation.  Major points:
