Hydrocarbon Production Operations


This program will provide the participants with an integrated view of the hydrocarbon production and related facilities during the life of the reservoir. It will present an overview/fundamental understanding of the wide range of oilfield production handling and treatment equipment. With this view and tools and knowledge on the properties and flow of the fluids provided in this training session, the participant will be able to understand the behavior of the fluids from the reservoir up to end-users. The training gives a strong emphasis on the calculation of reserves, fluids properties from the reservoir through gathering network. This knowledge is necessary for the surface facility engineer to design or operate the equipments and facilities

Targeted Groups:

  • Technologists
  • Mechanical engineers
  • Safety and Inspection engineers
  • Operations, Maintenance or project engineers
  • Anyone requiring a broad understanding of the structure, operations, and economics of the oil and gas industries

Conference Objectives:

At the end of this conference the participants will be able to:

  • Explore global oil & gas related statistics, such as reserves, production, consumption, and exports
  • Learn about both upstream, middle stream and downstream operations and related facilities
  • Learn about various methods and techniques used to explore, drill, produce, treat and transport oil, gas and their products
  • Understand the oil & gas operations of various field facilities from the wellhead, flow lines, separators, tanks, pumps and compressors, pipelines, gas treatment and processing, refinery operations, etc
  • Understand the basic concept with regards to evaluating oil & gas reserves, artificial lift and enhancing recovery
  • Understand the challenge associated with this industry such as offshore operations, horizontal drilling and other safety concerns
  • Get a general feel for petroleum economics and risk analysis

Targeted Competencies:

  • Understanding the role of petroleum economics in evaluating field development projects
  • Understanding the role of the petroleum/reservoir engineer in optimizing recovery
  • Details of oil & gas processing including exploration, refining, storage transportation and retailing
