Why Choose this Training Course? 

Petroleum refining and petrochemical industries unavoidably generate large volumes of wastewater. As environmental regulations for wastewater disposal are getting stricter, and fresh water resources are becoming increasingly limited, the industry requires more efficient management and reuse of this wastewater. Therefore, wastewater treatment must be explored and resolved by every oil refinery and petrochemical company.

This 5-Day PetroKnowledge training course will identify how to get to the core of this issue using thorough analysis of the development status of wastewater treatment methods including flotation, coagulation, biological treatment, membrane separation technology, combined technology and advanced oxidation process that ultimately results in maximization of petroleum refining and petrochemical industries profitability and meeting with the strict environmental regulations.

Participants will learn several configurations and techniques for wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) in oil refining and petrochemical industries. Understanding of these techniques will be reinforced by exercises and case studies.

The training course provides both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills on:

  • Typical sources and contaminants of wastewater produced from oil refining and petrochemical industries
  • Refinery and petrochemical wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) impacts and benefits
  • Conventional refinery and petrochemical wastewater treatment plants
  • Current development status of wastewater treatment technologies
  • Latest on wastewater recycle/reuse for oil refining and petrochemical industries (ZLD)

What are the Goals? 

By the end of this PetroKnowledge training course participants will be able to:

  • Learn the purpose, principles of operation and limitations of the different wastewater treatment technologies in oil refining and petrochemical industries
  • Understand how to establish high recovery of wastewater for reuse onsite, reducing fresh water intake and meeting strict regulatory requirements
  • Understand the advanced cost-effective technologies for reduction of waste volume and obtain Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD)
  • Learn how to reduce the energy consumption and operational costs of the wastewater treatment facilities and optimize treatment conditions
  • Learn industry standard targets for wastewater prior to discharge or reuse
  • Identify the impact of pollution on the environment
  • Modify treatment facilities operating conditions according to the properties of incoming polluted wastewater
  • Improve the operability and reliability of equipment

How will this Training Course be Presented?

A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions as well as case studies will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information, knowledge and experience transfer. The training course will be intensive but practical and highly interactive. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody finding the right answers. The attendants will also be encouraged to raise more of their own questions and to share developing the right answers using their own analysis and experience. There will also be some indoor experiential activities to enhance learning. Course material through power point equipped with necessary animation, learning videos and general discussions will be provided.
