The oil and gas processing and production facilities in any refinery and petro-organization is one of the key components in the oil and gas supply chain. The oil and gas production facilities are included and featured in the various different upstream and downstream operations. Professionals working in these process facilities should have expertise in working both onshore and offshore facilities and also have the skills for designing and operating various different types of oil and gas production and processing facilities at par with the global standards. A number of different elements are involved in these this domain including production facility types, processes utilized, equipments used, hydrocarbon phase behavior characteristics, various reservoir types, products specifications and the associated processes. Additionally, various other product facility considerations should be taken into consideration such as process safety and downstream processing and the resulting production facility selection process and operation.
