In the contemporary global oil and gas sector, the transportation of crude oil and refined products predominantly relies on large maritime vessels. Consequently, the efficient and secure management of marine terminals holds paramount significance for the seamless transfer and storage of petroleum products at designated facilities. Professionals tasked with overseeing and administering Oil & Gas Marine Terminals must possess comprehensive and current knowledge encompassing Health, Safety, Security, and Environmental aspects.

This meticulously designed training program aims to empower participants, representing companies engaged in the operation of marine terminals, with essential knowledge, updated tools, and the requisite skills to effectively tackle a diverse range of technical and safety challenges encountered during terminal operations. These challenges encompass various facets, including facilitating cargo transfer (including custody transfer), preparing for emergency responses, and providing support for vessel berthing, all in strict accordance with international regulations and standards.

Our course maintains a balanced focus on both the managerial and technical dimensions of terminal operations, recognizing their essential roles as prerequisites for the successful management of these intricate facilities. Throughout the program, participants will actively engage in several workshops, each featuring real-life problems and scenarios commonly encountered in terminal operations. These workshops will serve as platforms for robust discussions and the valuable exchange of experiences among the participants.
