Why Attend This Training Course?
This course will cover how to establish and apply a general troubleshooting methodologyas well as how to conduct process/equipment specific troubleshooting related to Gas Production and Processing Facilities. 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 gas production and processing facilities work, including the commonly used processes and equipment involved. This course will not provide in-depth coverage of fundamentals.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training course methodology depends on enabling participants to interact and exchange experiences, explore their competencies and achieve their career aspirations, using forward-thinking training arts, such as theoretical lectures and/or open discussion to exchange opinions and experiences, scenarios, innovative thinking brainstorming. Participants will receive an agenda including training material as a reference, in addition to some extra notes and booklets. 

Who Should Attend This Training Course?
The course is designed for process/facilities engineers with 5-10 years of experience, facilities engineering team leaders, and supervisors and senior facilities operational personnel. 

What Are The Training Course Objectives?
  • The difference between troubleshooting, optimization, and debottlenecking
  • How to recognize trouble when it is occurring
  • How to develop a methodical approach to troubleshooting
  • To recognize how different components of a facility interact with each other, and the significance of these interactions
  • How to gather, validate, and utilize the data needed for troubleshooting
  • The criteria to be considered for identifying the best solution when several feasible solutions are available
  • Typical causes of problems, and their solutions, for the main types of processes and equipment used in upstream/midstream gas production and processing operations

What Is The Training Course Curriculum?
  • Understanding the similarities and differences between Troubleshooting Vs Optimization Vs Debottlenecking
