Why Choose this Training Course?

Jet fuel is a type of aviation fuel designed to be used in aircraft powered by gas-turbine engines. Because the exact composition of jet fuel varies widely based on the petroleum source and type, it is impossible to define jet fuel as a ratio of specific hydrocarbons. Jet fuel is therefore defined as a performance specification rather than a chemical compound. In this Petroknowledge training course, the emphasis will be on jet fuel chemistry, manufacturing, specifications, handling, and troubleshooting techniques that would lead ultimately to improved fuel utilization, optimization, and enhanced organizational economics.

A case study approach covers some selected jet fuel specifications, sampling methodology, analytical methods, quality monitoring, pricing, and trading will be presented. In addition to the scientific procedures and contents of this training course, many real-life case studies and implementations are planned to be daily presented in an open discussion forum with the participants.

The Jet Fuel Specifications training course provides both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills highlighting:

  • Jet fuel chemistry and manufacturing technologies
  • Jet fuel specifications and quality monitoring system
  • Testing parameters for Jet fuel
  • Contaminants and jet fuel testing methods
  • Jet fuel Material Safety Data Sheet
  • Jet fuel additives
  • Effect of jet fuel properties on engine performance

What are the Goals?

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

  • Describe jet fuel chemistry, manufacturing, and handling.
  • Understand the basics of jet fuel production and its relevant refining processes.
  • Explain jet fuel properties and their impact on fuel performance.
  • Discuss jet fuel quality, specifications, and market fundamentals of supply and demand.
  • Troubleshoot quality problems and contamination of jet fuels.
  • Understand Jet fuel trading and pricing mechanisms.

Who is this Training Course for?

This Jet Fuel Specifications training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Fuel Quality Specialists
  • Process and Operation Engineers
  • Senior Operation Personnel
  • Technical Supervisory Staff
  • Anyone who needs to know more about the aviation fuels market.

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This PetroKnowledge Jet Fuel Specifications training course will be delivered by extensively interactive training methods, encouraging attendants to share their questions and experiences and apply the course material to real-life work case studies. The attendants will also be encouraged to raise more of their questions and to share developing the right answers using their analysis and experience. The training Course material through power point equipped with necessary animation, learning videos, and general discussion to provide participants with a full understanding concerning the subject course will be provided.
