Why Choose this Training Course?

This PetroKnowledge training course will cover the methods of supervision of operations and the development of an effective process. The principles of distillation, hydraulics, phase separation, and heat transfer, as they apply to process applications, have been well known for quite some time. The recognition of problem and troubleshooting is covered in this course. The aspect of the job that makes it so difficult is that most process problems are initiated by human error – a never-ending source of surprise.

This PetroKnowledge training course will provide participants with a good guide for a cost-effective supervision and working knowledge of the major processes for Dehydration, Acid Gas Removal (Gas Sweetening), Hydrocarbon Dewpoint Control (HCDP Control), LPG Production, NGL Recovery and Separation (Fractionation).

Participants will also learn the basic vocabulary unique to the industry and the key physical and chemical properties of oil and natural gas constituents.

The training course will also cover the important considerations of the design and selection of key process equipment including Separators, separators, pumps, communication and automation monitoring systems.

A lot of attention in this course is given to the SIMOPS onto platform.

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:

  • Downstream activities
  • Oil and gas production
  • Description of the ideal supervision with right personnel
  • Monitoring production for a smooth operation
  • Production components including separators, pumps and heaters
  • Unmanned and manned platforms
  • Communications and control of operation
  • Utilities and transportation
