Crisis and Emergency Management (CEM) Team’s mission is to reduce risks during normal business operations by increasing our emergency preparedness. CEM coordinates risk assessment and subsequent incident mitigation planning. Public health and employee safety are top priorities for all operations. The range of potential incidents and emergencies which could affect, disrupt, or stress production are increasing. If managed correctly then not all these incidents will be critical or could be classed as a crisis, but those which result in significant losses, or put increased demand on the organisation will have serious consequences for the company, the company’s stakeholders, the country and the reputation of all those involved in the response. This training course will teach you that meeting the commitment involves more than just being fully prepared.
Even with the best of data, the correct interpretation of a subsurface structure usually requires recognition of the fundamental characteristics of the assemblage in which it occurs and the range of trap style to be expected. This course provides an overview of all hydrocarbon-bearing structural assemblages and their associated trap types. The physical models, D2 and D3 seismic, and mature-field log-based interpretations from around the world provide analogy examples for practical interpretation. Participants will learn the major structural trap geometries and the structural concepts for predicting the geometry where data are absent, misleading, or conflicting.
Environmental assessment (EA) is the assessment of the environmental consequences (positive and negative) of a plan, policy, program, or actual projects prior to the decision to move forward with the proposed action. In this context, the term "environmental impact assessment" (EIA) is usually used when applied to actual projects by individuals or companies and the term "strategic environmental assessment" (SEA) One of the difficulties, however, in implementing EIA has been the design of an appropriate methodology, in view of the fact that most, if not all the existing methodologies are more suitable to developed countries than developing ones

By the end of this course participants will have a better understanding of - How to evaluate the economic viability of a project using the DCF method Petroleum contracts and fiscal systems Models to weigh risk and uncertainty Techniques to manage sensitivity and after tax factors The effects of finance, inflation, tariffs and breakeven costs on financial performance The basic principles of gas economics Project evaluation and screening criteria
During the remaining lifetime of an oil or gas field, the application of economic methods in the treatment process is a prerequisite for ensuring compliance with specifications for the gas, oil, and water phase. This course bridges the gap between process technology and production chemistry. It includes aspects common to operational issues such as organic precipitates (asphaltenes and waxes), water treatment and quality for re-injection, causes of non-effective treatment plants, modern ways of optimizing treatment units, corrosion prevention and rules of bacteria in oil and gas production, scale formation, as well as system surveillance strategies. Based on practical experience possible causes of failure in production operation are explained and discussed in detail. The course focuses on practical onsite experience. Case histories (video support) and practical examples will be subdivided into the following sections: System description, theoretical background, failure potentials, weak points and recommendation to mitigate possible negative production effects or to prevent further damage in the operational system.

Shutdowns and turnarounds are the highest risk activities that we routinely perform in industry, but they are also an area of massive variability in approach and outcome. Many companies do not have written methodologies and have not trained their staff in best practice for shutdown and turnaround management; despite the fact that many shutdowns and turnarounds typically lead to the highest peaks in safety incidents, downtime and fixed cost spend each year. There has also been a historic gap in meaningful guidance - there are very few books on shutdown and turnaround management. Unfortunately, too often companies see shutdowns and turnarounds as something to be survived. If shutdowns and turnarounds are not properly planned, managed and controlled, companies run the risks of serious safety and budget penalties, costly scheduled delays and negative impact on customers. Industry is full of examples of poor shutdowns and turnarounds, which have injured people and damaged businesses. As a consequence, operators are starting to explore turnaround best practice and establish a more robust methodology.
HAZOP (Hazard and Operability) study is one of the most widely used hazard identification methods in the world and is utilized across many different industries. Countless potential risks and problems can be identified by using the systematic and structured approach of HAZOP. A successful HAZOP study is only possible if the study is led effectively. Without good leadership, studies ‘drift’ and become, at best, design reviews; or, at worst, contractual arguments. This course will provide participants with an understanding of the HAZOP methodology and why it works, as well as key skills to take on the role of a HAZOP Team Leader. Participants will learn how to function as a HAZOP study Leader including: preparing and selecting a team, choosing nodes, estimating timescales for completion, avoiding common problems, and formulating reports.
