Course Overview          

A liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal is a structure used for the storage of natural gas. A terminal may comprise ships, building structures or tanks of specific types. Pipelines and port infrastructure also form a significant part of LNG terminals.

LNG is nothing but natural gas that is liquefied to be transported in a safer form, mainly by sea. Thus, LNG terminals are ports built for specific purposes of import or export of natural gas. LNG terminals can broadly be classified into two main types, i.e. liquefaction terminals (export) and regasification or receiving terminals (imports).

Terminal operations are critical to the success and development of trade and commerce for a nation, and expertise in terminal operations becomes equally important. Terminal operations encompass all activities, measures and guidelines that should be known when working at terminals.

This Zoe training course will empower you with a complete understanding of LNG terminals and terminal operations to be able to undertake and successfully fulfil higher roles and responsibilities related to LNG terminal operations for your organisation.

This LNG training course will also increase your prospects and potential to acquire greater opportunities for growth and progression within and outside your organisation. Thus, this course is extremely important if you intend to build and progress your career in LNG terminal operations and management.

Course Objectives

The primary objective of this training course is to empower professionals with—

  • detailed knowledge and understanding of LNG terminals and terminal operations
  • the required knowledge and confidence to mentor and guide other professionals to effectively carry out various operations at LNG terminals
