Focused Training & Expertise in Ethylene/Olefins based Petrochemical Facilities
We focus on Olefin based petrochemical facilities based on our strength and expertise in this area.
These courses are conducted by Sanjeev Kapur. Sanjeev is a recognized industry expert in ethylene and related technologies. His expertise cover a vast background and hands-on experience in technology know-how, design, engineering, operation, troubleshooting and technical risk evaluation/ mitigation.
We can tailor course to your needs. Typical courses include:
“As the petrochemical industry is going through a significant demographic and experience level change in staffing over the next few years, a wide range of skills is substantially lacking. These include technical, soft and managerial skills, with particularly acute shortages in technical occupations such as petrochemical engineers. These shortages are imposing challenges to the maintaining of scheduled daily operations in the industry. A significant number of workers in the industry are retiring, taking with them years of knowledge and leaving less experienced operators and engineers to ensure that increasingly sophisticated and complex plants run reliably, safely and profitably. What needs to change is the nature of how experience and expertise is taught and how technical information can be taught and learnt.”
