Event Announcement: LNG Operations & Management Master Class


Effective training in today’s fast-paced global LNG market is imminent with emerging dynamics and paradigm shifts seen in demand and supply. Therefore having a strong technical and operational team with extensive knowledge of the LNG value chain, both onshore and offshore is crucial. This course is designed for an intensive training in all operational elements of the upstream and downstream Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) business.

Throughout the course, participants would have the opportunity to engage in highly interactive discussions and acquire critical operational processes and techniques. This will be achieved by examining the current trends and issues in the industry and by breaking down the whole value chain from end-to-end liquefaction processes to shipping and storage and from LNG import terminals to regasification. Practical key studies will also be presented and analyzed during the course of training and the importance of delivering value through LNG operations and management best practices will be highlighted.

This comprehensive and up-to-date course will be valuable both to those who already have experience in natural gas as well as to new comers to the operational and technical sector of the industry.

This course will be led by two experts.

The first trainer has worked extensively as advisor to several NOCs, major oil and gas companies on a large number of oil, gas and energy development projects, worldwide. He has worked on several integrated gas & LNG projects for a major European and African oil and gas company, including negotiation of all the commercial agreements required for project development.

The second trainer has 25 years experience as a process engineer working in the energy industries of which the past 15 years have been in LNG with BG Group, Advantica and Germanischer Lloyd as Principal Consultant. He has worked on 19 LNG import terminals and 7 LNG liquefaction plants all around the world. He focus is primarily on technical aspects but also has been involved in commercial contracts. Roles have also included marine, commercial, reliability/availability, safety and environmental aspects of projects.  Recent major projects have included the design and management of preFEED studies for both an onshore and a floating liquefaction plant and technical leadership of 4 import terminal developments in Europe. These latter have considered both conventional onshore designs and a variety of offshore options.
