Process Utility systems & control

The Process Utility Systems training course will feature the importance and relevance of process utilities used in today industrial operations. It will familiarise the delegates with the various practices used for selection, operation and maintenance of various equipment used in process utilities. It will be demonstrated how these utility systems are efficiently integrated into oil and gas facilities. This AZTech training course will also cover important practical aspects useful for engineers and operators in dealing with their basic utilities, including maintenance and troubleshooting of equipment and components.

Material presented in this training course will help the delegates to understand worldwide recommended guidelines and practises to be followed regarding the efficiency improvement, optimization and safety considerations. Several workshops with real practical examples will be selected to be solved as a team work. They will illustrate the concepts discussed and also provide delegates with necessary experience in applying them.

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the operation and maintenance of main process plant utilities
  • Analyse optimization of stem generation, utilization and distribution
  • Evaluate parameters of water preparation systems
  • Determine the correct selection criteria for compressed air systems
  • Optimize the use of refrigeration, inert gas, fuel supply and electric systems
