Who is the course for?
This eLearning course is aimed at individuals working in the oil and gas industry with natural gas and gas liquids. It is particularly suited to those who have already completed our Natural Gas Liquids and Liquified Natural Gas (NGL & LNG) Part 1 course.
Is previous experience required?
It is expected that as a participant in this course you will have a basic understanding of the properties and processing of natural gas liquids. The topics covered in our Natural Gas Liquids and Liquified Natural Gas (NGL & LNG) Part 1 course are assumed as prior knowledge for this Part 2 course.
How will the course benefit me?
Natural gas is now one of the most widely used energy sources in the world. This course will build on your existing knowledge of natural gas processing by providing an overview of the chemical and physical properties of gas liquids, and how gas liquids are stored both on- and offshore.
The knowledge gained in this course will help you deepen your understand of NGL and LNG processing. The course also covers health and safety issues associated with gas liquids.
How will the course benefit my company?
As natural gas becomes more important as an energy source, it is vital that companies employ people who understand how it is produced, processed and stored. A good understanding of the risks involved in gas liquid processing can help to reduce incidents and improve safety.
What standards are referenced in the course?
This course is written to current HSE guidelines and industry best practice, and references examples of standard-setting bodies such as the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operations (SIGTTO).
Is there an assessment?
Once you have completed the course, you will be asked a series of questions to check your knowledge and understanding. These are based on the learning objectives for the course and have a pass mark of 80%.
