Background

The online learning programs presented here originate from classroom programs and open public programs for oil and natural gas industry, conducted for around two decades for major companies worldwide. The programs were conducted by well-recognized professionals under the banner of Technomanage Consultants. The industry awareness programs like “A to Z of Oil & Gas to Petrochemicals”, “A to Z of Natural Gas and LNG” became very popular and were delivered to several companies in South East Asia, India, Europe and USA. The popularity of the programs, with both technical and non-technical personnel, stems from the simple lucid way the entire value chain of the hydrocarbon industry is explained.

Specialist training programs by the same group on process plant design were also well appreciated by EPC companies. The online versions of the programs on oil and natural gas industry awareness are now launched by Technomanage LLC to enable the clients to train greater number of employees at an affordable cost. In future we plan to add specialist programs on process plant design and engineering.



Developer of the Training Programs

The programs have been developed by Dr. Utpal K. Dutta, a professional with over 50 years’ experience in design and engineering of oil and gas production facilities, petroleum refineries and petrochemical facilities. He has developed and conducted training programs for major international companies. He has also been a faculty member in Professional Activities Center of National University of Singapore for their open training programs for the industry.

A number of experts in the area have given input over a period of time in evolving the programs. Special mention is due for Mr. S.C Gupta, a technocrat with decades of experience in technology, engineering consultancy and operation with companies like Stone & Webster, Indian Oil Corp. and Engineers India Ltd.

Credit for technical aspects of the website and making this training available online goes to Mahesh Natarajan, a software professional with wide range of expertise and experience.

Ltd. and many other major international companies.
