Course Introduction:

   As processing units become increasingly complex, with attendant higher levels of stored energy, the design of safe, economically reliable relieving devices and disposal facilities becomes more important than ever. Pressure-relief systems provide the means for protecting personnel and equipment from abnormal operation of a process.


   Final product costs of refinery operations are becoming proportionally more dependent on processing fuel costs, particularly in the current market, where reduced demand results in disruption of the optimum energy network through slack capacity. Therefore, to achieve the most cost-beneficial plant, the recovery of hydrocarbon gases discharged to the flare relief system is vital; advantages are also obtained from reduced flaring pollution and extended tip life.

Course Objectives:

       The course will enable participants to develop the following competencies:

               • Have a good background on Basic Refinery Processes, Major Refinery Products, Product

                   Specification& Petroleum Refining Operation


                • Determine the components and function of the relief systems and be able to know the sizing

                    and installation of the relieving devices


                • Identify the types of flare systems and be able to emphasise their features and application

                • Determine the applicable codes, standards and recommended practices for flare, blow down

                    and pressure relief system


                • Acquire knowledge on product storage and tanks and be able to recognize the importance of

                  product  recovery

                • Learn the scope waste heat recovery and understand its role in flare and pressure relief system


Who should attend?

   The course will be useful for Operations personnel, Operation Supervisors, Maintenance personnel, Maintenance Supervisors, Senior Plant Supervisors, Operations Engineers, Process Engineers, Design Engineers, Cost Engineers and other professionals who desire a better understanding of subject matter.
