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?
This Sustainable Facilities Management in the Oil and Gas Industry training course is understood as an integration of environmental-oriented practices, measures for conservation and practical implementation of the energy efficiency measures, as well as use and reuse of the resources in the overall life cycle of the facilities and equipment in the oil and gas industries.
The application of the lifecycle sustainable approach consequently is not only environmentally sensible, but, in the long term, ensures economic benefits and self-reliant and efficient facilities operation. Special focus will be put on the link between the sustainable lifecycle approach and Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative and ISO 26000.
The implementation of the series of measures will lead to compliance with existing environmental legal and corporate requirements. Further on, the holistic approach will also ensure that the facilities will easier meet the long-term goals of the sustainability and environment-aware initiatives and regulations. Metrics of compliance will also be discussed.
This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:
Sustainability and sustainability approaches in the oil and gas industries
Lifecycle approach in the sustainability efforts
Energy conservation and energy reuse initiative
Use of locally produced sustainable energy
Water conservation, use of produced water in the oil and gas industry
Waste reduction measures and recycling approaches
What are the Goals?
By the end of this Sustainable Facilities Management in the Oil and Gas Industry training course, participants will learn to:
Fully comprehend the lifecycle approach in the sustainability approach
Efficiently produce, use, and reuse energy on the site
Understand the options in water conservation and produced water management
Apply the conservation principles in waste reduction and move to recycling
Master the metrics for the sustainability approach
Who is this Training Course for?
This Sustainable Facilities Management in the Oil and Gas training course is intended for the practitioners involved in the design, operation, or decommissioning of the facilities in the oil and gas industry. Given the drill-down approach, it is suitable for both higher management and field practitioners.
This PetroKnowledge training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:
Plant managers & other manager levels are interested in sustainability & CSR compliance
Plant process designers, faced with sustainability requirements
Plant operators and plant process engineers that need to operate efficiently and environmentally friendly
Plant operators, subcontractors and other personnel tasked with the waste management and recycling tasks
Operators and process engineers dealing specifically with water management and produced water on the site
How will this Training Course be Presented?
This Sustainable Facilities Management in the Oil and Gas training course will utilise a combination of learning techniques to ensure optimal understanding, relating, and retention of the presented content. This PetroKnowledge training course is composed so that it can be attended and followed by a wide range of professionals interested in sustainable management of the facilities in the Oil and Gas industries.
The training course will be presented as a variance of lectures and practical exercises. Practical, illustrative problems for different real-life problems, and their solutions will be discussed. There are numerous opportunities for discussion and further exploration of related topics and problems from the participants.
Sustainable facilities management do reduce greenhouse gas emissions, preserves natural resources, and can contribute, on a global scale, towards prevention of climate change. Further, it allows a more rational way to better utilise existing resources in a more efficient way. Implementation of energy-efficient systems, optimised water usage, and reduced waste generation, facilities can significantly minimise their environmental footprint and have better compliance with the requirements of the international initiatives and standards, such as ISO 26000 (Corporate Social Responsibility) or ISO 50001 (energy efficiency), for example.
Further on, a sustainable approach, when consequently implemented, often leads to significant cost savings in the long run.
The main benefits on the organisational level are:
Compliance with the social responsibility practices, such as ISO 26000 and GRI initiatives
Compliance with the ISO 50001 and energy efficiency directive(s)
Efficient production and energy use on and offsite
Optimal use of available resources
Potentially higher profit coming from the same resources available
Efficient water use and utilisation of the produced water
Waste minimisation and recycling
Implement sustainability metrics in the organisation
At a personal level, participants will fully comprehend the existing and future initiative in sustainable management practices and will be able to comprehend the approaches.
The personal benefits are:
Comprehension of the CSR requirements towards sustainability and ISO 26000 requirements
ISO 50001 and energy efficiency requirements and compliance understanding
Practical skills for energy efficiency implementation and energy conservation measures
Practical understanding of the waste management and recycling
More efficient water management and utilisation
