Oil Refinery
Inspection (ORI)

Course Overview

Given that inspectors’ training for conducting  various inspections is one of the biggest challenges  in the field of inspection; and, sometimes not only it  leads to dissatisfaction among clients but also a  loss of credibility for inspectors as well as for inspection companies, we have developed this training  course. Drawing upon the experience of over 85  inspectors with more than 10 years of inspection  experience and a total of 3500 days of inspection, we aim to share this knowledge with you through a  comprehensive training program. In addition to the relevant technical aspects  covered in this course, instruction in the fundamentals of professional inspection, principles in inspection, & behavioral approaches when dealing with  both manufacturers & clients, you will learn the  techniques for effective report writing 

Who should attend

  •  Inspectors, who are involving in the in-service and shutdown inspection.
  • Engineers, who are involving in the design methods, inspection planning, integrity management (FFS, RBI, repair) program. 
  • Operational plant managers and integrity team members.  

What make it different

The nucleation and basic thought of this course has been started for the essential needs of industries for a comprehensive course that collected all requirements for specially inspection the oil refinery plants.

There are many standards courses for inspections, repair, NDT, damage mechanism, API codes, fitness for service assessments and many other standard courses, these courses are general and doesn’t refer to specific industry at all, in the proposed course the oil refinery units is the focal point.

It is expected that the candidates be capable of analysing and implementing the concept of the safe
