Petroskills Registerbutton

This is an intensive 5-day course providing a comprehensive overview of pumps, compressors, steam turbines, lubrication systems, seals and other machinery and practices related to rotating machinery. The focus is on equipment and system best practices- type, unit and station configuration, integration of these units in the process scheme and control strategy in upstream and midstream oil and gas facilities. The material of the course is applicable to all oil and gas field production facilities, refineries, pipelines, gas plants, marine applications and offshore systems.

Engineers, senior technicians and system operators designing, operating and maintaining rotating equipment in oil and gas facilities. Best practices from a variety of rotating machinery topics, representing many years of collective experiences, are presented in this course. In addition, the experience of the instructors allows many topics to be discussed in addition to those topics selected. The proper application of even one of the best practices is worth several times the cost of attending the course.
