Oil & Gas Production Advanced Operator

Oil & Gas - Operator course aims to give the participant knowledge and skills of the practical operation of a typical Oil & Gas installation. The course will give the participant practical understanding in the operation of the production facility. Further, the course will include procedures and work sequences which are vital to ensuring efficient and safe start-up and operation of an Oil & Gas plant. During the course, the theoretical education will be supported by a series of practical exercises on an oil & gas simulator, as well as discussions in the classroom.
