Petroleum Processing Technology (City and Guilds – Level 3 Certificate)

The course will help anyone with an interest in the oil industry achieve a broad understanding of the operational techniques of petroleum processing and the function and construction of the plant and equipment used in the processing of petroleum reservoir fluids.

The course/series consists of 10 modules:

• Oil and Gas Separation

• Petroleum Gas Compression
• Natural Gas Liquids Recovery
• Oil Pumping and Metering
• Injection Water Treatment
• Produced Water Treatment
• Gas Flow Measurement
• Process Flow & P&ID’s

These stand-alone modules will enable an individual to select those learning materials that suit his or her own particular requirements. Modules can be studied at the candidates own pace and can be studied in any order, but the order is as numbered. The study time needed will vary from one module to another, and from one individual to another. It is likely to be in the range 20 – 40 hours for each module.

Each module will consist of one or more Workbooks, and a “Guide to Open Learning”.

No commitment to enrolling for the complete Petroleum Processing Technology Series is required at any time although each candidate must register for each module. Modules are non-transferrable and can only be assigned to one candidate.

Each module (detailed above) may be assessed by examination and an individual certificate endorsed by City and Guilds awarded to successful candidates.

Each exam which is passed successfully will contribute to one Certificate of Unit Credit towards The Certificate in Petroleum Processing Technology. The Certificate will be awarded after all 10 Certificates of Unit Credit have been accumulated
