Who should attend
This course is intended for all Engineers and Technical staff whose responsibilities include the safe and cost effective operation of water injection systems. Management will also benefit by increasing their awareness of the cost-effective use of treatment chemicals and by developing their skills in analysis of water quality data. Also, this course is suitable for corrosion personnel, W. I. personnel, lab personnel, chemists and chemical engineers.
About the course
Water is increasingly becoming a scarce resource. Large and small scale users need to take action to conserve it not only because it is prudent practice to do so for their own benefit, but also because it is an active demonstration of their concern about the global pollution and environmental problems. Large industries in particular are required to employ environmental specialists to assist them to identify potential savings, to prepare for audits, to need strict standards etc. Engineers need to be conversant with water treatment technology so that themselves can identify opportunities for saving water, and can communicate better with the specialists.
The course will go through the basic principles of water conservation and reuse and establish a common way of approach to water use issues. It will examine the various techniques and technologies, which can be used to achieve what, can sometimes be enormous savings through the implementation of solutions.
The course covers industry in general but will be customized to the chemical, petrochemical and oil industries.
A key part of the course is detailed case studies presented in a fashion, which demonstrates the total system approach to pollution control.
Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:
- Have a very good understanding of the broad field of wastewater treatment, the technologies offered and the reuse options available so that they can focus better on their specific industries best approach to water conservation
- Undertake the water associated with crude oil and gas during early production, how to treat and dispose
- Learn and understand the preamble and injectivity of enhanced oil recovery
