Why Choose this Training Course?

This intensive PetroKnowledge training course will provide delegates with the required skills to ensure cost effective operation and maintenance for their process plant.  Optimum modes that produce the most efficient results, consistent with safe and reliable operation will be studied in detail.

Plant energy consumption and reliability is the foundation of process plant optimisation. For optimisation benefits to be sustainable, production interruptions must be kept to a minimum, which requires effective management of degradation processes that affect equipment and systems and effective inspection and maintenance strategies, plans and methods. Plant optimisation can be an effective way to achieve improved profitability without the large investment associated with building a new plant. 

This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:


Training Objectives

What are the Goals?

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

  • Recognize and understand overall plant effectiveness (OPE)
  • Apply the business focus to ensure sustainable plant profitability
  • Appraise the most cost-effective operation and energy saving methods
  • Describe the managerial tools needed to effectively optimize plant operations
  • Implement the most appropriate operation and maintenance strategies
  • Determine and measure key performance indicators (KPIs) for their plant
  • Identify and apply effective procedures to improve those KPIs

Target Audience

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course will benefit all levels of personnel in a process plant environment. It will enable them to understand the design considerations, construction details and operational parameters associated with process heat exchangers.

This PetroKnowledge training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Process Plant Supervisors
  • Plant Engineers and Operators
  • Production and Operation Engineers
  • Maintenance Engineers and Technicians
  • Engineering and Technical personnel involved in improving process plant, petrochemical plant and refinery profitability and energy efficiency

Training Methods

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This PetroKnowledge training course will utilise a variety of proven adult training techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented; this includes PowerPoint presentation.

The goals of each participant are discussed to ensure their needs are fulfilled, as far as possible. Questions are encouraged throughout, particularly at the daily wrap up sessions. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss specific issues and, if possible, find appropriate solutions.
