Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course? 

Structural engineers are encountering many problems due to the hot climate and the other environmental conditions in gas plants. Quality control in construction of the reinforced concrete structure is a complete function which involves management, statistics and engineering. In a hot climate, it needs more precaution in concrete industry and on the construction of the building to match with the requirement to this weather. All the examples and real case studies for gas projects.

In this PetroKnowledge Construction and Concrete Building in Gas Plants training course will focus on using of understanding concrete technology, design of Reinforced concrete and design of steel structures. Moreover, all the activities of the construction projects, especially the concrete product. The quality control of the concrete is illustrated in scope of the different codes and specifications.

The petroleum industry’s interest to modify the structure in the on-shore facilities to carry more load or add more machines so the integrity management of change must be considered important. The composite section design and FRP will be presented in the course. The pushover analysis will be discussed to define the probability of failure for industrial structure. All example will be specifically related to oil and gas projects for most oil and gas companies worldwide.

This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:

  • Case studies on petroleum industry
  • The codes and standard with technical practice in this field
  • The new trend of integrity management system will be presented
  • Different codes and standards for Quality control
  • Quality control test (video presentation)
  • Effects of quality in gas projects
  • Main skills and required knowledge for design concrete and steel buildings in gas plants
  • QC procedure for concrete in a hot climate
  • QC for steel structure activities

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals? 

By the end of this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will:

  • Familiarise all quality management techniques and procedures
  • Learn available non-destructive testing for concrete and steel structure projects
  • Understand the practical tools to control the concrete and the whole project that includes field-testing and the required laboratory facilities
  • Understanding the methodologies of designing steel structures
  • Repairing and maintaining buildings in gas plants.
  • Familiarise with all construction case studies in gas plants

Who is this Training Course for?
