Compressor Systems - Mechanical Design and Specification: ME-46

 

This five day, foundation level course is for facility design engineers, operations engineers, and technicians seeking an in-depth understanding of centrifugal, reciprocating, and
screw compressors. This course provides basic knowledge of compressor types and associated auxiliary systems, mechanical design of equipment, operating and performance
characteristics, control and monitoring systems,
maintenance practices, and codes and standards.

Fundamentals of Pump and Compressor Systems

 ME-44

 

This is an intensive five day course providing a comprehensive overview of pumps and compressor systems. The focus is on equipment selection; type, unit, and station configuration;
and integration of these units in the process scheme and control strategy in upstream and midstream oil and gas facilities. The material of the course is applicable to field production facilities, pipelines, gas plants, and offshore
systems.

Turbomachinery Monitoring & Problem Analysis: ME-62

 

This five day course is an intensive, specialized level program for experienced mechanical equipment engineers to develop and expand their capabilities in monitoring and problem
analysis of turbomachinery. This course focuses on defining the systems and subsystems that form the turbomachinery, the potential problems with these systems and subsystems, monitoring techniques for early detection of problems, and
methods to analyze the monitored variables to detect potential problems or reconstruct reasons for failures. Case studies are used throughout the course.

Corrosion Management in Production/Processing Operations: PF-22

 

This course will cover the main causes of corrosion in upstream oil and gas operations, as well as monitoring and mitigation methods. The various corrosion mechanisms give rise to a number of different forms of corrosion damage, which will all be considered. Participants will estimate the corrosivity of a given environment through analysis of the chemical and physical characteristics of the system; review approaches to selecting materials and coatings for corrosion resistance for different conditions and applications (including the use of NACE MR0175/ISO 15156); and be introduced to cathodic protection (CP) surveys, selecting the CP system type, estimating current requirements, and the design principles of simple cathodic protection systems.

Process Plant Reliablity & Maintenance Strategies: REL-5

 

This course is designed to teach reliability engineering skills as they apply to improving process system reliability and developing maintenance strategies. You will use modern software and analysis methods to perform statistical analysis of failures and model system performance, plus develop maintenance and reengineering strategies to improve overall performance.

Risk Based Inspection: REL-61

 

The risk-based approach requires a systematic and integrated use of expertise from the different disciplines that impact plant integrity. These include design, materials selection, operating parameters and scenarios, and understanding of the current and future degradation mechanisms and risks involved. Risk-based methodologies enable the assessment of the likelihood and potential consequences of equipment failures.
