Oil and Gas Engineering Training Courses


Maintenance Planning & Work Control in the Oil & Gas Training

Introduction:

Lower revenues from lower oil and gas prices have placed equipment lifecycle costs in the spotlight of maintenance management like never before. Maintenance managers must deliver the same equipment safety levels, reliability, and availability on smaller budgets.

This oil and gas maintenance planning and work control training course introduces the practical tools and practices that oil and gas industries need to adopt to reduce equipment lifecycle costs.

This oil and gas maintenance planning and work control course emphasizes the most effective strategies, policies, tactics, and practices needed to ensure physical assets' reliability, integrity, and durability throughout their lifecycle through proper planning and control of Maintenance activities.

Preventive and Predictive Maintenance in the Oil and Gas Industry:

This oil and gas maintenance planning and work control course recognizes the importance of preventive maintenance and the emerging field of predictive maintenance in the oil and gas industry. It dives deep into the types of maintenance that are crucial to the industry.

Participants will explore the nuances of oil and gas equipment maintenance, oil and gas plant maintenance, and oil and gas pipeline maintenance. We will also incorporate the best preventive and predictive maintenance practices to maximize asset uptime, throughput, and longevity.
