Description

Dear student,

Ever wondered how crude oil is transported from remote production wells like in Siberia or Arabian desert to refineries ? and then how commercial petroleum products like gasoline or diesel fuel are dispatched from refineries to your gas station so that you can fill up your car and go to work ?

If you're curious about that then you've come to the right place !

This course is designed to give you a comprehensive picture of the international oil logistics : from transport of crude oil to refineries, to dispatch of commercial petroleum products.

The course is organized into 2 parts :

  1. The first part is an analysis of transport problems, particularly the transport of crude oil. We discuss : sea transport first, different types of tankers, different types of charters, costs and prices for this type of transport, the regulatory framework and operational matters. Then we consider transport by pipeline.

  2. The second part deals with the different ways of delivering finished products from a refinery : by water, pipeline, rail or road, and the different restrictions that apply to them. Finally, we review the various controls that apply to dispatch.


This training course will highlight :

  • Up-to-date global statistics of oil & gas

  • Update you of the various methods and technologies used to transport oil, gas and their products

  • Essentials of international oil and gas supply, economics and transportation

  • Primary logistics – tanker freight costs and chartering

  • Supply logistics – major international pipelines, shipping routes, and choke points


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

  • Gain a broad perspective of the global oil and gas business : supply and transportation

  • Understand logistics and supply principles and practices

  • Use Worldscale reference to charter a ship and to calculate the profitability


This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit :

  • Oil & gas field personnel

  • Operations, maintenance and engineering trainees

  • Other support staff who have an interest in increasing their understanding of the oil & gas logistics

  • Business Development Managers, Corporate Planning Professionals and Business Analysts switching disciplines who are required to have a better understanding of this stimulating field

  • Energy industry journalists and reporters

  • Professional personnel such as legal, banking, insurance, finance dealing with oil supply and transportation


What makes me qualified to teach you :

I hold 2 chemical engineering degrees from the "Ecole Nationale Supérieur de Chimie de Paris, Chimie ParisTech" and the "Institut Français du Pétrole, IFP School", 2 of the top tier chemical engineering schools in Europe with a major in refining and petrochemicals.

For the last 10 years I have been working as a chemical engineer for an international oil company where I have taken on different technical challenges in petrochemicals manufacturing, petroleum refining, logistics, planning and business analyses.


What's next ?

If you are interested in other topics related to chemical engineering or to the oil and gas industry, and would like a training course on them, built the way this current course is, then please let me know.

So that you are aware, we are in the process of building the following courses :

  • Oil and Gas : History, markets, pricing, economics and petroleum products

  • Crude oil refining demystified

  • Storage of petroleum, chemicals and LPG

  • Overview of the petrochemical industry 1/3 : Steam cracking

  • Overview of the petrochemical industry 2/3 : Making polymers (PE, PP, PS, PVC)

  • Overview of the petrochemical industry 3/3 : Other petrochemicals (Benzen, Xylene, Toluene, Styrene, Cumene, Phenol...)

  • Distillation, absorption and stripping : Engineering basics and equipment

  • Heat transfer technologies : Process furnaces and heat exchangers

  • Rotating equipment basics 1/4 : Centrifugal pumps

  • Rotating equipment basics 2/4 : Positive displacement pumps

  • Rotating equipment basics 3/4 : Centrifugal compressors

Dear student,

Today we are proud to announce you the release of our new technical folder : The most complete guide of it’s kind. We decided to call it : The chemical engineer’s reference folder.

This folder as the name suggests, was prepared mainly for 2 groups of readers :

1. Petroleum and chemical engineering students

2. Chemical engineers and technicians whose major interest is gas and petroleum production, refining and processing operations

The folder provides well-organized technical data in form of tables, charts and diagrams. More than 90 tables, 120 charts and 70 diagrams which are essential to the oil and gas, petrochemical and chemical industries.

These charts and diagrams cover many important engineering fields like liquid vapor equilibrium, fluid dynamics, heat transfer and distillation just to name a few.

The preparation of this folder was a joint effeort of WR training engineers who compiled data, charts and diagrams for which they were especially qualified and possess valuable experience.

So with no further ado, check out the detailed table of content and the folder overview video of a printed copy and let us know if you are interested in this reference folder
