Event Details

This is an intensive 4 day course providing a comprehensive overview of pumps and compressor systems. The focus is on equipment selection – type, unit and station configuration, integration of these units in the process scheme and control strategy in upstream and midstream oil and gas facilities. The material of the course is applicable to field production facilities pipelines, gas plant, and offshore system. The participant will learn:

  • Selecting the appropriate integrated pump and compressors units (drivers, pumps, compressors, and auxiliary systems)
  • Integrating the pump or compressor unit with the upstream and downstream piping and process equipment.
  • Evaluating pump and compressor unit and their drivers in multiple train configurations-parallel and series.
  • Identifying the key local and remote control elements of pumps and compressors as well as their  drivers.
  • Defining the major life-cycle events such as charges in flows, charges in fluid composition and charges in operating conditions
  • Assessing the key pump hydraulics and compressor thermodynamics and their effect on selection  and operations.
  • Identifying significant operating condition monitoring parameters and troubleshooting techniques.



    • Types of pumps, compressors, and drivers and their common applications and range of operations.
    • Evaluation and selection of pumps and compressors and their drivers for long-term efficient operations.
    • Unit and station configuration including multiple trains in series and /or parallel operations.
    • Integrated with upstream and downstream process equipment, local and remote control systems and facilities utilities.
    • Key auxiliary system including monitoring equipment, heat exchangers, lube and seal systems and fuel/power systems.
    • Major design, installation, operation, troubleshooting, and maintenance considerations



Engineers, Senior Technicians and Systems Operators designing, operating and maintaining pump and compressor systems in Oil and Gas facilities.



The training methodology combines lectures, discussions, group exercises and illustrations. Participants will gain both theoretical and practical knowledge of the topics. The emphasis is on the practical application of the topics and as a result participant will go back to the workplace with both the ability and the confidence to apply the techniques learned to their duties.
