The latest October 2015 editions of The Energy Education Pipeline eNewsletter are now available.

"Most of our clients only have an opportunity to interact with the frontline staff at The Oxford Princeton Programme – Instructors, Sales, Marketing and Web-Based Training.  However, some of the most important individuals in our organisation reside behind the scenes in our world-class Operations department.  Imagine planning an event, possibly in another country, where just a few of the factors include instructor schedules, flights, accommodations, venues, dietary restrictions, materials, shipping, visas, customs and local restrictions?  Now imagine doing that nearly 200 times each year!"

New Online Overview of North American Energy Pipelines Course!

pipeline5This course provides an overview of the pipeline systems for transportation of hydrocarbon liquids and gases within the United States of America and Canada. You will learn about both physical and commercial arrangements for the operation of oil and gas pipelines from wellhead to end-user.  We will focus mainly on the long-haul (interstate), bulk transportation of crude oil, petroleum products and natural gas. You will gain an overview of how pipelines work, how the industry is regulated and how users of pipelines (shippers) interact with pipeline operating companies.  We will discuss the North American energy landscape, how this has changed in recent years and the implications for pipeline transportation of oil and gas.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • List the types of materials carried by energy pipelines, and describe their important physical characteristics
  • Identify the types of pipeline that make up the North American pipeline network
  • Recognize the basic geography of energy production, consumption and transportation in the USA and Canada
  • Point out how energy pipelines are constructed and their physical operation
  • Distinguish between liquids and gas pipelines in how they differ from each other in their operations
  • Recognize how oil pipelines handle the transportation of multiple different qualities of material
  • Select some of North America’s major pipeline routes, key pipelines and operating companies
  • Identify how the pipeline networks have been adapted to cope with the transportation requirements of unconventional oil and gas production
  • Point out the challenges facing the US and Canadian pipeline industry

September 2015 - eNewsletters

The latest September 2015 editions of The Energy Education Pipeline eNewsletter are now available.

"September is personally my favourite month of the year (cough cough my birthday cough cough) for a whole host of reasons.  The change in seasons can awaken your dulled senses with the fresh sights, smells and tastes that come with this time of year.  The end of the traditional family holiday season in the office allows your team to come back together in full-force and refocus on the goals of the year.  Those are refreshing but as working professionals we often forget that for a majority of our youth September meant one main thing..."

New Online Aromatics Technology and Markets Course!

aromaticsWhile this is an overview of aromatics, you should already have some previous knowledge of refining chemistry and the basics of petroleum refining before taking this course.

When we use the term ‘aromatics’, we are talking about cyclic structure, chemical compounds derived from petroleum, natural gas and coal. In other words they are chemicals derived from carbon.

Aromatic compounds comprise three of the seven basic compounds that are the basis for all petrochemicals, and these seven are often called the ‘building blocks’ for the petrochemical industry or more colloquially the ‘Seven Sisters’. They can be divided into three categories – olefins, aromatics, and natural gas-based compounds. In this course, we will examine aromatics in detail.

Delegates taking this course should already have successfully completed Introduction to Petroleum Chemistry, Chemistry in the Petroleum Refinery, Petroleum Refining Made Easy or have equivalent knowledge.

By the end of this course, you will learn to:

  • Identify the final products produced from aromatic-based compounds
  • Point out where aromatics come from and list the products they make
  • Recognize the value chains and derivatives of the aromatics business
