Course Overview

Liquified petroleum gas, commonly called LPG, consists of light hydrocarbon compounds, a mixture of propane and butane. It is a non-toxic but highly inflammable gas, and hence, LPG terminals need to be thoughtfully designed to prevent any hazards resulting from the physical properties of the gas.

LPG needs to be handled with care and thus all plant operations should be carried out with extreme safety, in adherence with universal standards.

LPG terminals are built to receive, store, mix and distribute LPG. Thus, considering the expanse of operations here, safety and planning are integral to the success of plant operations.

This Zoe training course will empower you with complete information and knowledge about LPG terminal designs and the safety of operations performed therein.

Through this course, you would acquire the skills and capabilities to work in any vertical of LPG operations, thus broadening avenues for greater opportunities promoting career growth.

The key objective of this LPG Terminal Design and Plant Operations Safety course is to empower professionals to—

  • thoroughly understand LPG terminal operations and design requirements to assist one’s organisation in these areas
  • examine and change current terminal designs and layouts for one’s organisation to comply with required standards
  • examine terminal operations to ensure safety guidelines are followed
  • train other professionals on important aspects of terminal design and operational safety
  • contribute to organisational credibility and development because of strict adherence to safety measures
  • apply advanced tools and technologies in operations to enhance the safety level and reduce the risks of occupational hazards
