Course Description
This one-day course is for technical personnel involved in the sizing, selection and operation of Pumps in Oil and Gas Processing facilities. The course focuses on the hydraulic principles of centrifugal pumps, their sizing and system design. You will learn quick pump calculations for conceptual studies along with rules of thumb as well as rigorous calculation required during detailed engineering phase.

Participants will receive complete set of course materials and a sizing spreadsheet.

Who Should Attend
This course is tailored for individuals who have some pump basic knowledge and/or are seeking a deeper understanding of how centrifugal pumps work, and when and how to apply this knowledge. This course benefits those who are involved in some facet of pump design or application.

Technicians, Operators and Junior Engineers will find this course especially helpful and relevant.
