Oil and Gas Engineering Training Courses


Mini-Master in Hydrocarbon Production Operations Training Course

Introduction

This comprehensive mini-master course in hydrocarbon production operations is designed to equip participants with a holistic understanding of hydrocarbon production and the associated facilities throughout a reservoir's life.

The hydrocarbon production operations course offers an in-depth perspective on a variety of oilfield production handling and treatment equipment. The hydrocarbon production operations course sheds light on the fluid properties and their behavior from the reservoir to the end user.

The hydrocarbons in oil and gas course emphasizes the calculation of reserves and fluid properties en route from the reservoir via the gathering network. The hydrocarbons in oil and gas prepare surface facility engineers to design or manage the required equipment and infrastructure adeptly.

Hydrocarbons in Oil and Gas

In this hydrocarbons in oil and gas course, we will discuss the significance of hydrocarbons within the realm of oil and gas, exploring what hydrocarbons are, their role in the industry, and the hydrocarbon production process. Understanding these foundational elements is crucial for grasping the complexities of hydrocarbon production operations.
