Why Choose this Training Course?

This PetroKnowledge Laboratory Analysis for Oil and Gas Production online training course will introduce how a field laboratory is vital for the operation and production of oil and gas. Oil and gas production requires many steps before they can be brought to market. An Oil and Gas production laboratory is therefore vital in maintaining control of field operations. Managers; technicians; production engineers: chemists and others will gain a good understanding of the capabilities and boundaries of a laboratory so that they can control and optimize production.

This Laboratory Analysis for Oil and Gas Production online training course will highlight:

  • The role of Oil and Gas Laboratory Chemists
  • Laboratory sampling and analysis in oil and gas production
  • Laboratory Management on how to efficiently run an Oil and Gas Production laboratory.
  • Crude oil Assay
  • Produced fluid analysis.
