Why Choose this Training Course?
Oil Production & Processing Facilities is a comprehensive 5-day training course that concentrates on oil & gas production and subsequent treatment surface facility operations and processes. The training course covers the entire oil & gas value chain from discovery, exploration and transportation through to refining and finally sales to downstream industries. An overview and fundamental understanding of the wide range of oilfield production handling and treatment equipment will be presented as well as new technologies.
The Oil Production and Processing Facilities training course emphasises oil and gas production facilities both onshore and offshore - from the wellhead to delivery of an on-specification crude oil to the refinery or natural gas to downstream users. Produced water treating facilities are introduced and discussed and includes coverage of water injection systems. In addition to the engineering aspects of oil production facilities, practical operating problems will also be covered, including treatment of emulsions, handling of sand, dealing with wax and asphaltenes, natural gas dehydration and sweetening and refinery processing.
What are the Goals?
