Oil and Gas Laboratory Operations Management MBA

Overview:

Introduction:

An Oil and Gas production laboratory is a vital component in maintaining control of field operations. Managers; technicians; chemists and others must have a good understanding of the abilities and limitations of a field laboratory so that they can better use the laboratory and its staff to control and optimize the oilfield process.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the function, importance, and operation of oil and gas laboratories
  • Understand how to optimize the day to day operation of the oil and gas laboratory
  • Gain an insight into how Quality Management is important within and Oil and Gas Laboratory
  • Understand how the results obtained from the laboratory can enhance the operation of the processing system and contribute to the integrity of plant and equipment
  • Understand how to process chemicals function and how to utilize them effectively
  • Understand how metering systems operate and how laboratory data contributes to accurate metering and tanker loading (custody transfer)
  • Learn how to efficiently run such a laboratory
  • Produce accurate and reliable results
  • Calculate chemical injection rates
