Why Choose this Training Course?

The Process Engineering Essentials training course is well-matched to those professionals and practitioners who require familiarity not only with chemical engineering principles, but also with many of the other engineering disciplines including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation. This is essential since Process Engineering is at the heart of much of the chemical, oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. Process Engineers are interested in the transportation and transformation of solids, liquids and gases. In the oil and gas sector, of specific importance are separation processes including distillation, heat transfer, hydraulics and fluid flow, reaction engineering, but also process control and economics. This training course focuses on the central areas of process engineering and guides the delegates in developing both fundamental and practical understandings of key issues.

 This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:

  • A practical introduction to the fundamentals of process engineering
  • Key areas applicable to major process industries especially oil, gas & petrochemical
  • Process Engineering influence on Safety and Risk
  • Optimisation of process design and control.
  • Costs and project costing

What are the Goals?

By the end of this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand fundamental principles used in processes and facilities
  • Apply practical understanding of hydraulics and fluid flow
  • Apply learning from historical safety incidents
  • Perform relevant calculations & analyses to assist in operation, sizing, & troubleshooting
  • Develop perspective & focus from a company viewpoint of interaction of different engineering disciplines

 

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit Technical and non-technical personnel in the chemical, petrochemical, oil and process industries with a need to understand and discuss fundamental process engineering issues:

  • Plant/Operations Personnel and Managers
  • Petroleum Engineers
  • Production Engineers
  • Trainee Process Engineers
  • R&D Chemists, Plant Chemists
  • Economists and Business Managers

 

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This PetroKnowledge training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes formal lectures and discussions, active participation through the use of problem-solving exercises, videos, group discussions, analysis of real-life case studies, and industry best practices. Case studies and examples will cover a range of levels, making the course also suitable non-technical staff.
