Introduction

The effective management and operation of an oil and gas terminal is essential for a successful business. The processing, transporting and storing of crude oil and refined petroleum products, in tank farms, involves custody transfers of partner and commingled stock, significant volumes of data from various sources and blending operations complexities. In addition, as these liquids are loaded and offloaded in bulk quantities, there is a large transfer of high value that makes it imperative for tank farm operators to efficiently manage their inventory and maximize their return on investment.

This training seminar provides an overview of the American Petroleum Institute API-650, API 620 and API 2610 specifications as well as the API 653 inspection standard. Emphasis is also given both as to safety as well as operability of tank farms and the training includes Seveso III Directive real life example reports, how they were carried out and implemented.

Upon successful completion of this training seminar, participants will gain knowledge on oil terminals and tank farms, methods of tank gauging, crude oil product specifications, product blending and tank mixing, dealing with of oil spill emergencies, cleaning of crude oil and heavy product tanks, understanding and employ a work permit system, pigging operations of oil pipelines, quality assurance and control, contingency and safety procedures.

 Topics discussed will include:

  • Crude oil and product properties & handling
  • Identify the different types of tank, troubleshoot, review and improve the operation of a tank farm
  • Tank gauging techniques, custody transfer and fiscal metering methods
  • Tank Design Standards Codes and Regulations
  • Terminal Planning and scheduling
  • Management & Operations
  • Identification of different types of tank
  • Troubleshooting, review and improvement of tank farm operations
  • Security & Safety and other essential topics related to Import / Export of Oil & liquefied Gas

Objectives

The tank farm’s mission is to perform its daily operations while maintaining a safe storage terminal.

Attendance of this five day training seminar will ensure:

  • In-depth knowledge of operations & management of crude oil and product terminals
  • Apply proper planning and scheduling techniques in storage & transfer systems
  • Command the various planning and transfer requirements for terminals
  • Develop good terminal management skills
  • Apply safe practices and procedures during the various operations in terminals including oil spill contingency and emergency response plans
  • Learn techniques on blending recipes for on specification products
  • Understand the limitations of tank gauging methods and learn up to date new technologies and methodologies for accurate tank measurement
  • Perform calculations for emissions discharges and dispersion with the aid of dedicated simulation software

Training Methodology

This training seminar includes interactive sessions with questions, discussions and problem solving under supervision along with group exercises. It will be conducted as an interactive seminar that encourages participants to share their own experiences and apply the seminar material to real-life situations.

The training seminar will be reinforced by :

  • A learning mix that includes, lecture style presentation, open discussion, case studies, simulations and group work.
  • The use of PC’s with simulations to estimate emission losses and dispersion as well as calculations using Microsoft excel to practice tank gauging calculations. Both methods will enhance the understanding of the taught material.

Organisational Impact
