The course has been designed for Supervisory level personnel working in oil & gas gathering and processing facilities. The course is designed to give overview of the complete oil and gas process systems and Gas lifting operations on a basic (foundation) level. Course sessions will emphasis Oil and gas Production process, Well head and production facility operation. Also include Natural Gas fundamentals and process which includes Natural gas processing facility operations like separation, sweetening, and dehydration and NGL recovery.

Understanding the basics instrumentation and process control system included in this course to enhance the knowledge like basic instrumentation, process variable, safe guarding systems etc.

Produced water treatments include produced water treatment and disposal. Fuel gas system and Inert gas system.




By the end of the training course, the participants should be able to get enhanced exposure in:

  • Oil and gas production over view and hydrocarbon basics
  • Various natural gas processing operations
  • Produced water system, Treatment, disposal. Chemical treatment. Fuel Gas and inert gas system.
  • Basic instrumentation and control system using in an oil and gas process facility
  • Gas compression, dehydration, sweetening, NGL recovery and gas injection.

The program is ideal for operators &panel operators and as refresher course for supervisory level personnel who operating and /or supervising oil & gas production facilities.
