The greatest benefit arises from discussing the underlying principles of the various processes and the cause of the common operating problems. You will also be able to see which processes are available to you to de-bottleneck or modify existing processes. The practical techniques and examples provide useful insights that are valuable in daily operations. Participants are encouraged to introduce any operating problems they have encountered for group discussion.


This course is designed for Oil filed Technologists, project managers, plant managers, plant supervisors, Production Supervisors, technical staff, Operators and Technicians and contractor personnel involved in the production of oil and natural gas.
