Today’s oil & gas industry in the world, the transport of crude and other refined products is predominantly done by large sea carriers. In this respect, the organization and safe & operation of marine terminals is considered of utmost importance for efficient transferring and storing of petrol products at the designated facilities. Professionals in charge of operating and managing of Oil & Gas Marine Terminals are required to have full and updated knowledge of Health, Safety, Security, and Environment (HSSE) aspects, including mechanical integrity of equipment and safety of operation procedures that are governed by international regulations and standards, ISGOTT, EMA, etc., together with the environmental pollution protection aspects, according to MARPOL Convention. In this training seminar, the participants coming from companies that operate marine terminals will be provided with the necessary knowledge and updated tools and skills that will enable them to successfully handle various technical and safety issues during terminal operations such as cargo transfer support, including custody transfer, emergency response and vessel berthing support, according to international regulations and standards. The seminar will focus on both managerial and technical aspects of terminal operation that are prerequisite for successful operation of such complex facilities. This seminar will include several workshops with real problems from the terminal practice which will enable discussions and exchange of experiences.
