The production system is the powerhouse for transforming the fruits of oil exploration activities, the extracted hydrocarbons and reservoir fluids are systematically transported and processed in the production system. The integrated production system is a very complex one, which requires multiple equipment and technology in order for the system to work effectively.
In this course, the learner who is looking to acquire an understanding of the integrated oil & gas production system will have the chance to look at the basic function(s) of each of the system components and how they are important to one another as well as the system as a whole. The learners who will benefit from this course are:
- New oil and gas professional
- Junior oil and gas engineer
- Junior professional in other disciplines
- Undergraduate/Postgraduate engineering student
- Anyone who is interested in the oil & gas production system
We will introduce the basic elements or system components making up to a functioning upstream production system. We will then explain the function of each system component and why they are important in the production system. Subsequently, we will show you why the different components are required to work together in a harmonious manner so that production efficiency can be achieved.
The online environment created in this course will allow learner to learn anywhere and anytime, however it fits his/her circumstances the best. The interactive content will keep learner engaged throughout the course, the discussion room offers the chance to interact with other students as well as course lecturer/trainer.
There will be reading materials, slides, quizzes, discussions and links to external medial which we use in this course for delivering a fun and interactive online course environment to you.
Hope you will enjoy the course and get to learn a few new things.
