Oil And Gas Marine Terminals



In today’s oil & gas industry, the transport of crude and other refined products is predominantly done by large sea carriers. In this respect, the organization and safe & operation of marine terminals are considered of utmost importance for efficiently transferring and storing petrol products at the designated facilities. Professionals in charge of operating and managing Oil & Gas Marine Terminals are required to have full and updated knowledge of Health, Safety, Security, and Environment (HSSE) aspects, including mechanical integrity of equipment and safety of operating procedures that are governed by international regulations and standards, ISGOTT, EMA, etc., together with the environmental pollution protection aspects, according to MARPOL Convention.

In this Oil and Gas Marine Terminals training seminar, the participants coming from companies that operate marine terminals will be provided with the necessary knowledge and updated tools and skills that will enable them to successfully handle various technical and safety issues during terminal operations such as cargo transfer support, including custody transfer, emergency response and vessel berthing support, according to international regulations and standards. This  Oil & Gas Technology training seminar will focus on both managerial and technical aspects of the terminal operation that are prerequisites for the successful operation of such complex facilities. This Oil and Gas Marine Terminals training seminar will include several workshops with real problems from the terminal practice which will enable discussions and exchange of experiences.
