Introduction to Oil and Gas Platform Design training course provided by Velocis Solutions aims to deliver the most fundamental and practical information about how oil and gas platforms work, what process engineers do in oil and gas platforms, types of equipment and their design. The course is a part of bundle including Separation in Oil and Gas Platforms and Liquid Hydraulics (Pump and Compressor Design). Besides the practical and comprehensive information, you will have a chance to get into depth by looking through the questions in lectures and assignments.
Let’s have a glance at our content. The course starts with the objectives of the course so more or less you will have an idea of what to expect from this training. Then, introduction part is provided for Oil and Gas Platform Design. Turning to the main parts of the course, be informed that the course materials are delivered in three main parts including:
Composition – how composition data is established by analyzing the results from the laboratory together with working on fluids compositions comprising the following topics:
•Mass/Mol fraction
•Reservoir Composition
•Test Separator
Physical Properties – where key properties are discussed that are generally needed for understanding a reservoir and the quality of product consisting of the following sessions:
•Specific Gravity
•Vapor Pressure
•Compressibility Factor
Production Rates – the production forecast of the platform in detail by introducing the most frequently used units in Oil and Gas Platforms which also comprises some topics that are:
•Unit Conversion
•Actual Standard Flow
•Production Forecast
By completing this course you will be able to:
Understand the fundamentals of Upstream processes;
Define the composition of the reservoir fluid;
Use lab data for defining Physical Properties of the mixtures and
Create a PFD for our platform and finally, we will start preparing the BOD document for our very own platform like in real projects.

You will learn

✓ The Fundamentals of Upstream Processes
✓ Developing familiarity with common “oil field” terms and phrases.
✓ Defining the Reservoir Composition
✓ Demonstrating the use of Data for Defining Physical Properties of the Mixtures
✓ Creating a Process Flow Diagram (PFD) for the Oil and Gas Platform


• There are no pre-requesites for this course. The fundamental and solid background will be delivered to the course takers.

This course is for

• Chemical Engineers
• Junior Engineers
• Process Engineers
• Candidates interested in pursuing their career in oil and gas industry
• Candidates who are starting their career in the drilling industry and would like a competitive advantage in their development
• Newcomers to the industry for an opportunity to explore the oil and gas industry
