Our courses include training in the following:

  • Centrifugal gas compressors
  • Reciprocating gas compressors
  • Screw compressors
  • Process control and instrumentation
  • Floating, production, storage and offloading vessels (FPSOs)
  • Oil and gas production facilities
  • LNG
  • Floating LNG
  • Coal seam methane

Dynamic simulation offshore training courses

ESD’s courses are broken into 40min sessions comprising lectures, simulation model exercises, videos, CBT+ multi-media training packages and group discussions. With the emphasis on practical, hands-on training, ESD courses enable delegates to return to their workplace feeling confident in applying their knowledge with a much deeper understanding.

Approved offshore technical training courses

Many ESD courses are approved by the IChemE and form part of the Institute’s Continuing Education Programme. This approval involves a rigid process for initial acceptance and necessitates ongoing monitoring by the Institute, ensuring their standards are adhered to.

ESD’s wide range of oil and gas courses includes training on subsea systems, and production, process and emergency systems on oil and gas installations.
ESD’s FPSO training courses encompass the areas of technology, engineering, project management and legislation.
ESD offers in-house, non-technical training courses for personnel without an engineering background, to provide a greater understanding of the oil and gas industry.
ESD’s control room simulator consists of the main process areas typically found in an oil and gas plant; we provide training in wellhead operation and gas / oil separation.
ESD provides leading, comprehensive training in centrifugal gas compressors, reciprocating gas compressors, screw compressors and industrial gas turbines.

Coupled with the fact that all ESD course lecturers are qualified engineers with extensive industry experience, this has enabled ESD to enjoy an unrivalled reputation for delivering high-calibre technical training.

Oil and gas training courses

ESD offers a wide variety of training courses specifically for the oil and gas industry. Our highly popular open access programme, together with a number of courses that are run on an in-company basis only, includes the following:

  • Production, process and emergency systems on oil and gas installations
  • Hydrates and hydrogen sulphide
  • Subsea systems
  • Well management and artificial lift
  • Glycol dehydration
  • Natural gas treatment processes

FPSO training courses for the oil and gas industry

ESD recognises that FPSOs are a fast-growing sector of the oil and gas industry. Encompassing the areas of technology, engineering, project management and legislation, our FPSO training courses are designed for a wide range of personnel whose work scope involves the specification, design, management or operation of FPSO projects.

Vessel-specific FPSO training courses

ESD undertakes a large percentage of vessel-specific training in our FPSO training course. We provide a series of courses for both engineer and operator levels, providing a comprehensive study of the particular field’s potential development and engineering options.

These courses cover topics such as functional requirements, mooring technology, subsea completions and marine systems, together with process training, compressor training and safety case awareness.

Non-technical oil and gas training courses

ESD has developed a range of in-house courses for those without an engineering background – typically in HR, administration, secretarial and finance disciplines.

The one-day, competitively priced courses are designed to provide delegates with a greater understanding of the oil and gas industry. A variety of courses are available covering the following subjects:

  • Overview of the main sectors of the oil and gas industry
  • Overview of FPSOs
  • Overview of drilling and reservoir engineering
  • Overview of subsea systems

Oil and gas plant control-room simulator training

ESD has recently taken ownership of its own control-room simulator, which is an exciting development for the company. Reflecting the behaviour of a real plant, this process model consists of the main process areas typically found in an oil and gas plant.

Ideal for all control-room operators, the plant simulator course includes training in the following:

  • Wellhead operation
  • Gas / oil separation
  • Gas compression
  • DCS operation
  • Operating procedures
  • Troubleshooting
  • Handling of abnormal conditions
  • Oil export systems
  • Communication
  • ESD systems
  • Fire and gas systems
  • Emergency response assistance
  • Aptitude assessment

Compressor training courses

ESD provides a leading, comprehensive range of compressor courses. Our open access programme includes courses on the following types of equipment:

  • Centrifugal gas compressors
  • Reciprocating gas compressors
  • Screw compressors
  • Anti-surge control
  • Industrial gas turbines

Process control system training courses

ESD has delivered a range of in-house training courses on process control systems for a number of well-known companies worldwide. These highly successful courses, developed for both graduates and operators alike, have been designed to give a practical introduction to the principles of measurement and control of a process plant.
