Course Overview

Oil and Gas treatment processes and procedures need specialized equipment to provide the energy to move large quantities of liquids and gases through piping and pipelines designed for those purposes. This movement begins from the oil and gas fields through refining and processing plants, and onwards to the storage and sales points. The equipment used to move the fluids is called rotating equipment. These types of equipment are used significantly and provide an increase in pressure for both liquid and gas streams to enable the passage of fluids to the required destination.

This Zoe training course will introduce delegates to various types of compressors, pumps, turbines and their associated equipment, such as bearings, seals, filters, etc. This training course will also develop the technical knowledge of the operation and maintenance staff to build their confidence level in start-up, follow-up, shut down and troubleshooting.

The course defines and describes the systems and subsystems that form the turbine, the potential problems with these systems and subsystems, monitoring techniques for early detection of problems, and methods to analyse and examine the monitored variables to detect potential problems.

Upon completing this Compressors, Pumps and Turbines course, participants will be empowered to:

  • Know the principles of compressor, pumps and gas turbine theory of operations
  • Recognize different types of pumps, compressors and gas turbines
  • Explain the functions and principles of operation of each major component of these machines and systems components
  • Learn how to measure and control the performance and efficiency of these machines
  • Understand and learn the principles of pump, compressor and gas turbine start-up procedures and introduce standard operating procedures for the package

Training Methodology

The Compressors, Pumps and Turbines training course will employ a variety of proven and verified learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes lectures, presentations with active delegate participation including discussions, real-life problems and case studies.

Through an active participation in the group work and class discussions, the delegates will get adequate opportunities to increase their experience and knowledge of techniques available for equipment troubleshooting.
