Coaching is often interpreted as training. The secret of efficient coaching is to create a pull model instead of a push model, i.e. start with the individual team Member.

An environment for intrinsic motivation instead of old-fashioned “management by order” has to be created.

ADDITIVES AND ADDITIVE SELECTION

29–30 January 2020 Bahrain
Download Agenda

Environmental requirements, quality regulations, emission standards, energy efficiency improvements and new engine technologies have been responsible for remarkable changes in quality of fuels and consequently in the role of fuel additives. A dynamic of these changes is a continuous process which goes along with the development of the new generations of fuels.

Additives are mixed in small amounts into fuels to improve the product’s properties or to introduce new properties. This course is focused on the fuel additives’ selection process for all major refinery products. It covers additive fundamentals and their impact on the quality of products, the importance of the selection process, compatibility of additives, testing and interpretation of the results. Additionally, the course gives a perspective on how additives fit into integrated refinery processes.

FCCU OPERATION, FUNDAMENTALS & TROUBLESHOOTING

9–10 March 2020 Bahrain
Download Agenda

The FCC unit of a refinery has often been deemed to lose importance due to changing/varying fuel demands and crack spreads in the market (summer gasoline demand, diesel gap in Europe etc.). However in recent years, the FCCU has become more and more important. Due to challenges the industry is facing, the FCCU is actually growing in importance based on its ability to convert almost any hydrocarbon into higher valued liquid products. With the advent of the petrochemical industry growing year after year, the FCC has also grown in importance as fuel supply for the petrochemical industry (resid-to-chemical).

This course will provide you with the most important fundamentals of FCC and also with operational modes and troubleshooting cases.

FUEL QUALITY MANAGEMENT

11–12 March 2020 Bahrain
Download Agenda

To be fit for purpose fuels should fulfill quality standards related to the specific regional or national market requirements.

The course presents a comprehensive and detailed overview of specification standards for fuels, emission standards, quality control and certification of products procedures, the impact of ultra-low sulphur fuels production, test methods differences and how to approach a dispute in fuels’ quality. Additionally, the course gives an overview of the key quality parameters of gasoline and diesel fuel with corresponding test methods and how to locate and solve quality issues. Case studies are used to illustrate the relative importance of each aspect of the fuel quality management process.
