Troubleshooting Oil and Gas Processing Facilities - PF-49

Course

About the Course

This course will cover how to establish and apply a general troubleshooting methodology as well as how to conduct process/equipment specific troubleshooting. Definitions of good/normal performance will be discussed for each process/equipment type covered. Data gathering, validation and utilization procedures will be discussed. Criteria to use when evaluating possible problem solutions will also be covered. Real-world exercises will be utilized throughout the class to reinforce the learning objectives. Both onshore and offshore facilities will be discussed. It is assumed that course participants have a solid understanding of how typical oil and gas production and processing facilities work, including the commonly used processes and equipment involved.

"Well presented, well explained, good use of diagrams, good range of content. Regular breaks called at the right time to keep focus." - Participant, United Kingdom
