Why Choose this Training Course?
Stationary equipment including pressure vessels, storage tanks and piping systems, as well as rotating machinery, i.e. pumps, compressors, turbines, in oil and gas and associated facilities, play important role in modern industrial operations. Due to extreme working conditions, they are exposed to material degradation and damage mechanisms throughout their service life.
The aim of this PetroKnowledge Maintenance training course is to present the best practices regarding diagnosing the potential problems in operation in order to prevent failures and catastrophic accidents. The course will emphasize that the diagnostics skills can be developed and explain the role of the multidisciplinary team approach. The course will also introduce relevant API standards that provide guidelines for planning the scope and frequency of equipment inspection and condition monitoring.
It is deemed very important for the delegates to have a full understanding of the material degradation processes, risk analysis of equipment failures and available prevention and remedial technologies.
The training course will include several workshops where real problems from industrial practice will be solved, which will enable intensive discussions and exchange of experiences
Upon completion of this PetroKnowledge course, the delegates will learn:
- Guidelines for diagnosing of potential failures of equipment in operation
- Best practices for safe operation of stationary and rotating equipment
- Procedures for inspection and monitoring of equipment
- Methods to develop good diagnostics skills through team work
- Procedures and technologies for finding root cause of problems
