Why Choose this Training Course?

The Process Engineering Essentials training course in Dubai is well-matched to those professionals and practitioners who require familiarity not only with chemical engineering principles, but also with many of the other engineering disciplines including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation. This is essential since Process Engineering is at the heart of much of the chemical, oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. Process Engineers are interested in the transportation and transformation of solids, liquids and gases. In the oil and gas sector, of specific importance are separation processes including distillation, heat transfer, hydraulics and fluid flow, reaction engineering, but also process control and economics. This training course focuses on the central areas of process engineering and guides the delegates in developing both fundamental and practical understandings of key issues.

  • Perform relevant calculations & analyses to assist in operation, sizing, & troubleshooting
  • Develop perspective & focus from a company viewpoint of interaction of different engineering disciplines

 

Target Audience

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit Technical and non-technical personnel in the chemical, petrochemical, oil and process industries with a need to understand and discuss fundamental process engineering issues:

  • Plant/Operations Personnel and Managers
  • Petroleum Engineers
  • Production Engineers
  • Trainee Process Engineers
  • R&D Chemists, Plant Chemists
  • Economists and Business Managers

 

Training Methods

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This PetroKnowledge training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes formal lectures and discussions, active participation through the use of problem-solving exercises, videos, group discussions, analysis of real-life case studies, and industry best practices. Case studies and examples will cover a range of levels, making the course also suitable non-technical staff.
