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 :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.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 & gasUpdate you of the various methods and technologies used to transport oil, gas and their productsEssentials of international oil and gas supply, economics and transportationPrimary logistics tanker freight costs and charteringSupply logistics major international pipelines, shipping routes, and choke pointsBy the end of this training course, you will be able to :Gain a broad perspective of the global oil and gas business : supply and transportationUnderstand logistics and supply principles and practicesUse Worldscale reference to charter a ship and to calculate the profitabilityThis training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit :Oil & gas field personnelOperations, maintenance and engineering traineesOther support staff who have an interest in increasing their understanding of the oil & gas logisticsBusiness Development Managers, Corporate Planning Professionals and Business Analysts switching disciplines who are required to have a better understanding of this stimulating fieldEnergy industry journalists and reportersProfessional personnel such as legal, banking, insurance, finance dealing with oil supply and transportationWhat makes me qualified to teach you :I hold 2chemical engineering degrees from the “Ecole Nationale Suprieur de Chimie de Paris, Chimie ParisTech” and the “Institut Franais du Ptrole,IFP School”, 2of the top tier chemical engineering schools in Europe with a major in refining and petrochemicals.For the last10 years I have been working as a chemical engineer for an international oil companywhere I have taken on different technical challenges in petrochemicals manufacturing, petroleumrefining, logistics, planning and business analyses.What’s next?If you are interested in other topics related to chemical engineeringor 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 productsCrude oil refining demystifiedStorage of petroleum, chemicals and LPGOverview of the petrochemical industry 1/3 : Steam crackingOverview 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 equipmentHeat transfer technologies : Process furnaces and heat exchangersRotating equipment basics 1/4 : Centrifugal pumpsRotating equipment basics 2/4 : Positive displacement pumpsRotating equipment basics 3/4 : Centrifugal compressorsRotating equipment basics 4/4 : Reciprocating compressorsValves and piping in the Oil and GasFundamentals of process control used in industrial plantsProcess instruments used in industrial plantsGeneral inorganic chemistryOrganic chemistryEssential physicsIR and NMR spectroscopiesand much more…So with no further ado, go ahead, click the enroll button and we will see you in the first section !Cheers,WR TrainingSpread the wings of your knowledge
