Further Information - Produced Water Training

Description

Who is the course for?

This Produced Water Training course is for all personnel, especially those who require an overview of produced water systems.

Is previous experience required?

No previous experience is required to complete this course.

How will the course benefit me?

This course is designed to provide you with a basic knowledge of how water is removed from oil and gas reservoirs and how it is treated prior to reuse or disposal.

How will the course benefit my company?

This course helps to ensure that all personnel apply a common approach to both company and industry best practice in relation to managing produced water.

What standards are referenced in the course?

• The Offshore Petroleum Activities (Oil Pollution Prevention and Control) Regulations

• The Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals Regulation (REACH)

• OSPAR Harmonised Mandatory Control Scheme (OSPAR HMCS)

• US Environmental Protection Agency Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)

• Methodology for the Sampling and Analysis of Produced Water

• Environmental Protection Agency's Method 1664

Is there an assessment?

Once you have completed the course, you will be asked a series of questions to check your knowledge and understanding. These are based on the learning objectives for the course and have a pass mark of 80%.

Learning Objectives

Section 1: Introduction to the Oilfield Water Cycle
