Process & Analytical

The Process and Analytical academy (P&A) provides training for process engineers and operators, as well as laboratory training for chemists and laboratory technicians. Equipped with our state-of-the-art facilities to fulfil various training requirements for both process and analytical, the academy is committed to develop job ready workforce for the oil and gas industries, particularly the PETRONAS Operating Units (OPUs) as well as other industries globally.

Various equipment are utilised to facilitate the training programme and to fulfil learners’ needs and requirements. For Process trade, there are distillation columns, process control training plants, Distributed Control System (DCS), wastewater treatment plants, and training simulators whereas the Analytical Laboratory is equipped with Gas Chromatograph (GC), Inductive Coupled Plasma (ICP), crude and water analysis devices.

Since 2011, P&A has been conferred by the Environment Institute of Malaysia (EiMAS) as a recognised Training Provider for wastewater treatment programme, i.e. the Certified Environmental Professional in the Operation of Industrial Effluent Treatment Systems (Biological Process) (CePIETSO-BP).

Distillation and DCS Practice

This course will explain and demonstrate to participants with regards to Distillation and DCS Plant Operation involved in a Plant Operation. Execution of hands-on activities will provide a deeper understanding of the subjects presented. Furthermore, activities which cover 2 multi disciplines i.e. Process and Instrumentation will be highlighted and demonstrated. The newly built INSTEP Crude Distillation Unit (CDU), live and transparent Distillation Packing and Tray Colum together with DCS System will be used extensively in ensuring the activities can be explained and demonstrated in a systematic manner. A ratio of 30: 70 (theory: practical) will be emulated throughout this course. This approach makes this course unique and the only one which is available in the current market.

Advanced Distillation

This programme provides participants with knowledge and work experience on Distillation and DCS in a plant operation. The use of live and transparent Distillation Packing, Tray Column and Foxboro DCS System will enrich the participants’ understanding of the subject matter. The 30:70 (theory:practical) ratio makes the programme unique and one of its kind in the current market.

Wastewater Treatment System
