Petroleum Processing Technology Series
Stage 3 OPITO Certificate in Petroleum Processing Technology, accredited by City & Guilds
The Petroleum Processing Technology Series is designed to give a broad understanding of the operational techniques of petroleum processing, and the function and construction of the plant and equipment used in the processing of petroleum reservoir fluids.
The series consists of 10 modules which include workbooks and a ‘Guide to open learning’:
- Oil and Gas Separation
- Gas Dehydration
- Petroleum Gas Compression
- Natural Gas Liquids Recovery
- Oil Pumping and Metering
- Injection Water Treatment
- Produced Water Treatment
- Gas Flow Measurement
- Process Flow and Piping and Instrument Diagrams
- Oil Treatment (Dehydration)
These self study modules enable the candidate to select learning materials that suit his or her own particular requirements. Modules can be studied at the candidates own pace and should be studied in the order set out. The study time needed will vary from one module to another, and from one individual to another – we recommend between 20 - 40 hours for each module.
Candidates can register for modules individually or enrol for the complete series – modules are non-transferrable and can only be assigned to one candidate.
Each module is assessed by examination and an individual certificate endorsed by City and Guilds awarded to successful candidates. Each exam which is passed successfully will contribute to one certificate of unit credit towards ‘The Certificate in Petroleum Processing Technology’. The certificate will be awarded after all 10 Certificates of Unit Credit have been accumulated.
