Introduction to Petroleum Refinery Processing
London, United Kingdom

This popular 2-day course will present an overview of the modern, integrated petroleum refinery. Each refining process will be presented, covering operating description and conditions, feedstock and catalyst selection, product yields, and the relationship between process parameters, unit performance and product output and properties. Finally, future operations, including anticipated changes in crude oil and product slates will be recapped. Designed for refinery personnel seeking a thorough overview of the refining process, the course will also provide useful information to suppliers, crude oil traders, or those involved in financial assessment. A compete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering
Houston, USA

This three-day course is designed for technical professionals and will introduce participants to the fundamental aspects of reservoir engineering. Theoretical concepts and equations will be presented in an effort to assist reservoir and exploitation engineers in their primary functions - the determination of oil and gas reserves and the maximization of hydrocarbon recovery under primary, secondary, and tertiary schemes. The session will include a number of relevant class problems and examples. A complete set of course materials and lunch are included.

Petroleum Geology
Rock and Fluid Properties
Reservoir Drive Mechanism
Reserves Determination: Volumetric and Material Balance
