This course will provide the participants with an integrated view of the hydrocarbon production and related facilities during the life of the reservoir. It will present an overview/fundamental understanding of the wide range of oilfield production handling and treatment equipment. With the tools and knowledge on the properties and flow of the fluids provided in this training session, the participant will be able to understand the behavior of the fluids from the reservoir up to end users. The training gives strong emphasis of the calculation of reserves, fluids properties from reservoir through gathering network.

 Learning Objectives

  • Familiarize the participants with global oil & gas related statistics, such as reserves, production, consumption and exports
  • Familiarize the participants with both upstream, middle stream and downstream operations and related facilities
  • Familiarize the participants with various methods and techniques used to explore, drill, produce, treat and transport oil, gas and their products
  • Understand the oil & gas operations of various field facilities from wellhead, flow lines, separators, tanks, pumps and compressors, pipelines, gas treatment and processing, refinery operations, etc
  • Understand the basic concept with regards to evaluating oil & gas reserves, artificial lift and enhancing recovery
  • Understand the challenge associated with this industry such as offshore operations, horizontal drilling and other safety concerns
  • Get a general feel for petroleum economics and risk analysis

 Target Audience

Oil & gas production field personnel

Operations and maintenance supervisors and technicians

Operations and maintenance support engineers and engineering trainees

It would also be of benefit to safety and other support staff who have an interest in increasing their understanding of the hydrocarbon production operations.

 Training Methodology

The programme will include a number of exercises aimed at enhancing each participant capability to conduct various petroleum engineering problems. A number of short films will be presented during the training session to enhance the participants’ knowledge about the petroleum field operations.

New concepts and tools are introduced gradually to enable delegates to progress from the fundamental to the advanced concepts of oil & gas operation processes. Issues related to mid-stream and down-stream will be discussed, including recent developments.
