We provide a wider range of training options. Tailored and customized, we can deliver your organization’s training needs anytime, anywhere.
Why Choose this Training Course?
Pressure vessels, storage tanks, and piping systems together with rotating machinery for fluid transport represent major capital investment in any Oil / Gas Production operation. Good fabrication of these components, based on rigorous material selection is likely to provide long service life of equipment. Material degradation and aging requires application of adequate diagnostic techniques and continuous monitoring. Regular monitoring and inspection techniques can help in providing basis for estimating the health of the existing components of the equipment as well as the overall risk assessment.
The delegates will be introduced to the main points of inspection and testing of storage tanks and piping systems according to the relevant API standards in order to perform the fitness for service (FFS) analysis. The most up-to-date methods of equipment protection methodologies will be presented together with maintenance activities, including necessary repairs as prevention of failures. This Operation, Diagnostics and Maintenance of Equipment for Oil & Gas Production training course will also cover methodology of the risk assessment and management regarding the overall equipment integrity
This training course will include several workshops with real problems from industrial practice which will enable discussions and exchange of experiences.
