INTRODUCTION TO OIL & GAS:
OFFSHORE PLATFORM SURFACE FACILITIES OVERVIEW
22 FEBRUARY 2017 | PACIFIC REGENCY HOTEL SUITES, KUALA LUMPUR
by Maaruf Mohamad
*** HRDF CLAIMABLE ***
The petroleum upstream industry includes the exploration of the oil & gas activities, drilling of the wells, field development plan to develop the intended field, production phases which is producing the oil and gas and lastly is abandonment of the field when the field is not economic anymore.
There are many offshore structure exist and each and every structure is different in purpose. There is drilling rig which used for drilling a well. Production platform which is used as a medium to receive and process the extracted product either oil or gas before sent to shore. There also a mobile unit used for drilling and production or even for accommodation purposes.
During the production phases, there are a lot of equipment and system required to receive, process and transport the product either oil or gas. In This session, the participant will go through various system and equipment normally used as a production platform surface facilities.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
• Employees new to the industry
• Government policy-makers
• Professionals and advisors
• Members of the community seeking a basic understanding of the industry
• Businesses intending to enter the industry
The course is intensive but will make an effective use of delegates’ time.

CONSULTANT : MR. MAARUF MOHAMAD
Maaruf Mohamad has 7 years’ experience in upstream oil and gas industry. Currently, he is the mechanical supervisor for NC3, the newly installed gas platform located in Block SK316 within the Central Luconia, Sarawak water. The platform with the processing rate of 600 MMscf/d is supplying gas to the Bintulu onshore receiving facility i.e. Train 9. Prior to joining the NC3 team, he is the offshore maintenance supervisor at Baram platform, located at the Baram Delta, Sarawak water. It is one of the oldest field in Malaysia that is still producing after 30 years. He is responsible in ensuring all planned activities at offshore location are executed within the period allocated without compromising safety.
He graduated from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) in BEng. in Mechanical Engineering and obtained his MSc. in Petroleum Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). On top of that, he holds professional & competency certificates like Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) Grade 1 from DOSH Malaysia, Well Intervention IWCF (Level 2), PSMS Advance Diploma & MME certification from BTEC.
Maaruf Mohamad is a certified HRDF trainer and has the experience of conducting trainings for PETRONAS group especially the Upstream Division such as Sabah Asset (SBA), Sarawak Asset (SK-Oil & SK-Gas) and INSTEP.

According to the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Nigeria has the world’s 9th largest natural gas reserves (192 TCF of gas reserves). As at 2018, Nigeria exported over 1tcf of gas as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to several countries. However domestically, we produce less than 4,000MW of power for over 180million people.
Think about this – imagine every Nigerian holding a 20W light bulb, that’s how much power we generate in Nigeria. In comparison, South Africa generates 42,000MW of power for a population of 57 million. We have the capacity to produce over 2 million Metric Tonnes of fertilizer (primarily urea) per year but we still import fertilizer. The Federal Government’s initiative to rejuvenate the agriculture sector is definitely the right thing to do for our economy, but fertilizer must be readily available to support the industry. Why do we import fertilizer when we have so much gas?
I could go on and on with these statistics, but you can see where I’m going with this so I won’t belabor the point. I will leave you with this mental image: imagine a man that lives with his family on the banks of a river that has fresh, clean water. Rather than collect and use this water directly from the river, he treks over 20km each day to buy bottled water from a company that collects the same water, bottles it and sells to him at a profit. This is the tragedy on Nigeria and it should make us all very sad.
Several indigenous companies like Nestoil were born and grown by the opportunities created by the local and international oil majors – NNPC and its subsidiaries – NGC, NAPIMS, Shell, Mobil, Agip, NDPHC. Nestoil’s main focus is the Engineering Procurement Construction and Commissioning of oil and gas pipelines and flowstations, essentially, infrastructure that supports upstream companies to produce and transport oil and natural gas, as well as and downstream companies to store and move their product. In our 28 years of doing business, we have built over 300km of pipelines of various sizes through the harshest terrain, ranging from dry land to seasonal swamp, to pure swamps, as well as some of the toughest and most volatile and hostile communities in Nigeria. I would be remiss if I do not use this opportunity to say a big thank you to those companies that gave us the opportunity to serve you. The over 2,000 direct staff and over 50,000 indirect staff we employ thank you. We are very grateful for the past opportunities given to us, and look forward to future opportunities that we can get.

Headlines of the week
Unplanned crude oil production outages for the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) averaged 2.5 million barrels per day (b/d) in the first half of 2019, the highest six-month average since the end of 2015. EIA estimates that in June, Iran alone accounted for more than 60% (1.7 million b/d) of all OPEC unplanned outages.
EIA differentiates among declines in production resulting from unplanned production outages, permanent losses of production capacity, and voluntary production cutbacks for OPEC members. Only the first of those categories is included in the historical unplanned production outage estimates that EIA publishes in its monthly Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO).
Unplanned production outages include, but are not limited to, sanctions, armed conflicts, political disputes, labor actions, natural disasters, and unplanned maintenance. Unplanned outages can be short-lived or last for a number of years, but as long as the production capacity is not lost, EIA tracks these disruptions as outages rather than lost capacity.
Loss of production capacity includes natural capacity declines and declines resulting from irreparable damage that are unlikely to return within one year. This lost capacity cannot contribute to global supply without significant investment and lead time.
Voluntary cutbacks are associated with OPEC production agreements and only apply to OPEC members. Voluntary cutbacks count toward the country’s spare capacity but are not counted as unplanned production outages.
EIA defines spare crude oil production capacity—which only applies to OPEC members adhering to OPEC production agreements—as potential oil production that could be brought online within 30 days and sustained for at least 90 days, consistent with sound business practices. EIA does not include unplanned crude oil production outages in its assessment of spare production capacity.
As an example, EIA considers Iranian production declines that result from U.S. sanctions to be unplanned production outages, making Iran a significant contributor to the total OPEC unplanned crude oil production outages. During the fourth quarter of 2015, before the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action became effective in January 2016, EIA estimated that an average 800,000 b/d of Iranian production was disrupted. In the first quarter of 2019, the first full quarter since U.S. sanctions on Iran were re-imposed in November 2018, Iranian disruptions averaged 1.2 million b/d.
Another long-term contributor to EIA’s estimate of OPEC unplanned crude oil production outages is the Partitioned Neutral Zone (PNZ) between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Production halted there in 2014 because of a political dispute between the two countries. EIA attributes half of the PNZ’s estimated 500,000 b/d production capacity to each country.
In the July 2019 STEO, EIA only considered about 100,000 b/d of Venezuela’s 130,000 b/d production decline from January to February as an unplanned crude oil production outage. After a series of ongoing nationwide power outages in Venezuela that began on March 7 and cut electricity to the country's oil-producing areas, EIA estimates that PdVSA, Venezuela’s national oil company, could not restart the disrupted production because of deteriorating infrastructure, and the previously disrupted 100,000 b/d became lost capacity.
