Discipline: Process Facilities
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Robert Bombardieri, Mark Bothamley, James Langer, Mahmood Moshfeghian, Kenneth Sourisseau, Peter Williams
|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.|
Process/Facilities engineers with 5-10 years of experience, facilities engineering team leaders/supervisors, and senior facilities operational personnel.
You Will Learn:
MR. ROBERT BOMBARDIERI has almost 30 years in the oil and gas industry. His expertise is the use of process engineering to optimize operating facilities economics via addressing availability, product recovery and bottleneck issues. As such, Robert has tested, identified, designed, project managed and lead implementation of numerous molecular sieve, NGL recovery, sulfur recovery and debottleneck projects in several countries. He also has had roles in operations, business development and management. Mr. Bombardieri co-authored a paper on molecular sieve dehydration that was selected 'Best Paper Award' at the 2008 Gas Processor's Association annual convention and was published in the Oil and Gas Journal. He has a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Alberta and an M.B.A. from Tulane University.
MR. MARK BOTHAMLEY has experience that covers the areas of design, operation, troubleshooting and optimization of offshore and onshore oil and gas production and treating facilities. Prior to joining PetroSkills he was with BP/Amoco for 24 years, in several locations around the world. Mr. Bothamley is a past chairman of the SPE Facilities Subcommittee and a former member of the GPSA Data Book Editorial Review Board. Mr. Bothamley holds a BS in Chemical Engineering from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, and a Diploma in Natural Gas and Petroleum Technology from the British Columbia Institute of Technology in Vancouver, BC Canada.
MR. JAMES LANGER is a registered professional chemical engineer in Texas and California. He graduated with a BS in Chemical Engineering from UCLA and has an MBA from Pepperdine. Jim has been working for Hess as a Senior Process Engineering Advisor for the past 7 years. He is retired from Shell having worked 28 years as a Senior Staff Process Engineer, and Principal Technical Expert for Shell / Shell Global Solutions. He has had a global job for the past 15 years and had experience in offshore / onshore, shallow water / deep water, heavy oil / light oil, water treating, and natural gas processing. He has been a project manager working field development projects through all of the phase gates and stages. He frequently travels the globe assisting operations with process issues, and showing them how to unlock additional barrels through the application of production optimization. Jim installed Shell's smallest, most expensive gas plant. The project took 8 years and is located on Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach California.
DR. MAHMOOD MOSHFEGHIAN is a Senior Technical Advisor and Senior Instructor for PetroSkills. He is the author of most Tips of the Month and develops technical software for PetroSkills. He has 40 years' teaching experience in universities as well as for oil and gas industries. Dr. Moshfeghian joined John M. Campbell & Co. in 1990 as a part time consultant and then as full time instructor/consultant in 2005. Dr. Moshfeghian was Professor of Chemical Engineering at Shiraz University. Dr. Moshfeghian is a senior member of AIChE and has published more than 125 technical papers on thermodynamic properties and process engineering. Dr. Moshfeghian has presented invited papers at international conferences. He is a member of the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Oil, Gas, and Coal Technology. He holds a BS (74), an MS (75) and a PhD (78) in Chemical Engineering, all from Oklahoma State University.
MR. KEN SOURISSEAU has 34 years' experience with Shell. Assignments have been in front end development, process design, project engineering, operations technical support, and operations management primarily in the areas of sour gas and in situ heavy oil recovery. Mr. Sourisseau has worked throughout Alberta, in Abu Dhabi, and the Netherlands. He has authored a number of technical papers for international conferences, provided training for Shell in numerous countries, and has taught Gas Processing at the University of Calgary. He earned BSc and MSc degrees in Chemical Engineering from the Universities of Saskatchewan (76) and Minnesota (78) respectively. He is a registered professional engineer in Alberta.
MR. PETER WILLIAMS has over 35 years of industrial experience, most of which were in oil and gas processing. His experience includes plant process engineering, operations supervision, project development and business case definition, project technical support, plant engineering management, and internal consulting, primarily with Saudi Aramco. Canadian experience includes plant engineering in phosphorus production, heavy water, and bitumen upgrading, and project engineering. He also has experience with benchmarking, implementation of a safety management system, and the application of lean Six Sigma methods to engineering management. He has Masters' degrees in Chemical Engineering and in Economics, is a Professional Engineer in Alberta and is a certified Six Sigma Black Belt.
