|Oil and Gas Processing Facilities for Operations & Maintenance - OT-1|
|Gas Dehydration and Amine Sweetening for Operations & Maintenance - OT-41|
|Gas Production / Processing for Operations & Maintenance - OT-3|
Discipline: Operations & Maintenance
Duration: 10 days
Instructor(s): Jimmy Clary, Alan Royer, Buck Titsworth, Danny van Schie
|This course will provide a more detailed examination of the processes found in gas production facilities, including the important theoretical aspects that must be mastered before operators can truly understand their processes and become proficient at avoiding problems and troubleshooting the technical problems that do arise. This course prepares operations personnel to communicate better and work more closely with professional engineering staff. A problem set consisting of practical calculations that will be useful to operators beyond the classroom will be administered during the course. A high-quality scientific calculator is issued to all participants of the OT-3 course. Course content is customizable to client needs. This course is also available in non-mathematical, basic version of 5-day duration.|
Plant and facility operations and maintenance technicians, supervisors, and managers.
