Why Choose this Training Course?

Refurbishment and debottlenecking works is a manpower-intensive and equipment-intensive phase of any onshore and offshore project. This PetroKnowledge training course aims to provide an introduction to refurbishment and debottlenecking works, focussing on workpack preparation and execution.

With a detailed understanding of refurbishment and debottlenecking works including work pack preparation and execution, the participants will be better prepared to function in the engineering dept/function as field and discipline Engineers, refurbishment and debottlenecking project engineers, maintenance engineers, construction supervisors, workpack, operations or planning engineers.

This training course will feature:

  • Overview of field or project development planning
  • Project management team required for refurbishment and debottlenecking activities
  • Workpack process, definition, site survey, scoping, estimating, procurement and execution
  • Mobilisation of construction crew, marine crew and construction equipment
  • Refurbishment and debottlenecking activities for each engineering discipline
  • Testing, inspection and specialist services required
  • Commissioning activities, start-up and handover to client
  • Post-project activities and final documentation

What are the Goals?

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

  • Understand what entails in field development planning (FDP) and project management
  • Understand the complexities of Offshore and Onshore Refurbishment and Debottlenecking activities and what the activities entail
  • Understand the processes of what is involved in the Workpack Engineering and how it is timely executed during shutdowns for both onshore and offshore facilities
  • Understand and appreciate the work involved for each engineering discipline and the documents that are required – for both onshore and offshore activities
  • Fully understand what are involved in mobilisation of marine vessels, construction crew, marine crew and construction equipment for offshore and what equipment are required for onshore works
  • Understand the scope of commissioning and post-project activities during the shutdown window for the refurbishment and debottlenecking works- both onshore and offshore facilities

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Field Engineers
  • Construction Supervisors
  • Project Engineers
  • Operations Engineers
  • Workpack Engineers
  • Various Discipline Engineers (structural, piping, equipment, electrical, instrumentation)
  • Maintenance Engineers
  • Contract Administrators, Buyers and Procurement Executives
  • Cost Estimating, Project Control and Planning Engineers

How will this Training Course be Presented?

The training course will emphasise typical details of refurbishment and debottlenecking works, using flowcharts and diagrams to illustrate their principles and steps required, in the build-up to preparing and executing a work pack. Examples and video clips of past onshore and offshore workpack engineering and debottlenecking works will be provided to aid the learning and understanding of the subject matters. Participants will also take part in group classroom exercises to reinforce their learning experience. Each participant will receive a set of course materials. There will also be pre-course as well as post-course assessment tests
