THE COURSE

Process plants, such as refineries and petrochemical plants, are complex facilities consisting of equipment, piping systems, instruments, electrical systems, electronics, computers, and control systems. The design, engineering and construction of process plants involve a multidisciplinary team effort. Plant layout and design of piping systems constitute a major part of the design and engineering effort. The objective is to design safe and dependable processing facilities in a cost effective manner. The fact is that there are few formal training programs with a focus on plant layout and design of piping systems. Therefore, most of the required skills are acquired while on the job, reducing productivity and efficiency.

This online course will cover the fundamental principles and concepts used in process plant layout and piping design. Upon completion of this live online course, attendees will have a clear understanding of the design and engineering principles used in plant layout and piping design. The outcome will be a work force with the required skills and faster learning curves with minimal on the job training. This will increase productivity and shorten engineering and construction schedules. The process plants will get on stream quicker and operate with increased safety and reliability, satisfying the needs of the client.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This workshop is designed for personnel who want to understand the design and engineering principles involved in process plant layout and piping design. Those who will benefit the most from this workshop include the following:

  • Consulting engineers
  • Chemical (process) engineers
  • Designers and engineers involved in instrumentation and control of process plants
