IEM Shout Out – 2018-10 Two Day Course on Understanding Process Control For Oil & Gas Production Operators, Technicians And Engineers


My technical division will be hosting a 2 day course on the 16th and 17th October 2018. It is worth 13 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Associate Professor Dr. Syamsul Rizal Abd. Shukor, Associate Professor Ir. Dr. Zainal Ahmad and Ir. Dr. John Eow.

The oil & gas production processes (such as sand separation, produced water treatment, seawater filtration, crude oil and gas treatment) require reliable monitoring and control strategy to maintain optimum operational performance. Moreover, process operations are always being affected by disturbances, which negatively affect product quality and cause unplanned process shutdown. Therefore, a good understanding and competency on the major oil & gas production process operations and control are vital for the production personnel. This 2-day course is designed to educate the participants on the engineering design and process control practices in the oil & gas production processes, such as sand separation, produced water treatment, and crude oil desalting.

The course will cover the following major topics:
• Introduction to Oil & Gas Production Processes (such as sand separation, produced water treatment, crude oil treatment, etc.)
• Basics of Process Control
• Process Characteristics: Static and Dynamic
• Final Control Elements
• Controller Algorithm and Controller Tuning
• Single & Multiple Control Loops

Upon completion, the participants will be able to understand the process control fundamentals related to oil & gas production processes.   Moreover, they will have the basic knowledge to apply the process control concepts in monitoring their production process performance, and for better controller tuning to optimize their production outputs.
