A partner of excellencefor oil and gas professional development

E-530C - Advanced Oil & Gas Field Processing Certification

15 days PROC/ADVGB
  • Engineers involved in operating or designing oil and gas field processing facilities.
  • To deepen understanding of oil and gas field processing techniques.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • understand main thermodynamic transformations involved in Oil & Gas processing,
  • grasp a comprehensive picture of Oil & Gas processing facilities,
  • simulate main Oil & Gas facilities,
  • master operating variables and conditions of processing facilities.
  • Engineering degree or equivalent professional experience within the petroleum industry.
Ways and means
  • Highly interactive training with industry-specialist lecturers.
  • Numerous applications and illustrations.
  • Extensive practice of PRO/IITM process simulation software: a case study will be developed all along these 3 weeks (simulation of a crude oil and associated gas treatment process).
This course is a combination of three separate modules. Refer to sheets E-531, E-532 and E-533 for detailed content.
