Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Whilst energy companies assess the financial plausibility of alternative and renewable power supplies, traditional energy sources will still be required for the foreseeable future.  Do not be distracted by social and political fashions but be certain that your knowledge of well-established and sustainable energy sources is current and complete.

The political machinations of traditional oil producing countries, has failed to prevent a recent revival in crude oil prices, resulting the confidence returning to the crude oil industry.  As storage facilities release crude oil back onto the market there will be a surge of tanker business and freight rates will inevitably rise as a consequence.  Do not be left behind as the oil industry returns to prosperity.

This PetroKnowledge training course delivers a comprehensive coverage of the voyage cycle of a crude oil tanker.  It focuses on the preparation of the cargo system and all subsequent routine cargo and cargo system operations within a cargo cycle.  Topics covered will protect the safety and commercial interests of the ship owner, as well as the protection of the environment.

This training course will highlight:

  • The development of the crude oil industry and current state
  • The safe operation of crude oil tankers
