The Energy Institute (EI)'s Hydrocarbon Management Committee (HMC) has developed new online training and good practice guidance to support greater understanding in this field. This new resource, Online training for hydrocarbon management, has been designed to improve knowledge of these issues across various parts of the industry. The training is broken down into a series of modules to introduce the key elements of hydrocarbon management to those who are relatively new to the topic or who simply wish to refresh their knowledge.
The first two modules in the training resource are now available:
- Petroleum measurement (for marine cargo inspection) covers marine cargo measurements and matches the requirements of the IFIA Inspector Certification Programme. This includes the safety, sampling, testing and calculation procedures associated with hydrocarbon management.
- LNG operations (sea transport) provides a solid background to those involved in handling marine LNG cargoes, covering the product properties and measurements and also vessel operations and load and discharge procedures.
