Petroskills Registerbutton

This is an intensive 5-day course providing a comprehensive understanding of rotating equipment failures and reliability. Condition monitoring techniques are discussed and evaluated. Scenarios involving common rotating equipment reliability issues: rotors, journal bearings and vibration, thrust bearings, balance drums, pump mechanical seals, compressor seals (liquid and dry gas) and auxiliary systems are presented. The material of the course is applicable to all oil and gas field production facilities, refineries, pipelines, gas plants, marine applications and offshore systems.

Maintenance, engineering and operations personnel involved in troubleshooting reliability, analysis, condition monitoring, and maintainability of rotating equipment and related systems.
