IEM Shout Out – Introduction to Oil and Gas Industry – An Engineering Design Perspective


My technical division will be hosting a 1 day seminar on the 17th August, 2016. It is worth 6 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Mohammad Adnan Sujan.

This course aims to share basic fundamental design and development knowledges in the Oil and Gas industry. It exposes the participants to the design methodology and general concepts in the engineering and construction side of the industry.

It starts off with an understanding of oil and gas formation, characteristic and reservoir fundamentals. Then it touches upon the topics of surveying and drilling activities. Next, it explains the concept of oil and gas offshore complex and its specific offshore structures. Brief explanations of the offshore platform types and designs that exist in offshore areas are soon followed.

Separation process is also included to explain the separating method involved for the crude oil stabilization prior to storage or export. Different types of separation process equipment are shown for clarity. Basic design drawings and document deliverables required for each engineering discipline are then explained for the process and the engineering design development.

The module will continue with a project management topic, which will present participants with the important of project management, project phases, project management control & execution documents and project management challenges a& risks. The module will conclude with the electrical equipment hazardous area classification and ingress protection rating for oil and gas installation requirements.

Ir. Mohammad Adnan Sujan, P.E. – is a graduate from Drexel University Philadelphia USA in Electrical Engineering, (BSc 1998 and MSc 2001).  He has 15 years of working experience in the engineering industry, covering the onshore, offshore and Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) designs. He has involved in a wide ranging activities, from technical proposal to detailed design, and even construction, installation & testing. He has worked on a number of projects globally; these include Brazil, Iran, Iraq, Malaysia, Syria, USA, Trinidad and Vietnam.
