08 Aug 22-19 Aug 22 (London, UK), 21 Nov 22-02 Dec 22 (Dubai, UAE), 07 Mar 22-18 Mar 22 (Kigali, Rwanda ),

Course Overview

This course provides an overview of process safety engineering fundamentals for hydrocarbon processing facilities, with emphasis on the upstream oil & gas sector. Techniques for analyzing and mitigating process safety hazards applicable to oil and gas processing will be reviewed. Integration of the concepts covered to achieve a measured approach to process safety engineering is a key aim of this course. This course is designed for people who want to be involved in engineering maintenance be it mechanical, assembling of engineering assets or testing engineering products.
