Today’s oil and gas industry relies primarily on giant marine carriers carrying crude and refined products. This is because of the effective transfer and storage of petroleum products at the designated locations depending on the organization, safety, and operation of maritime terminals.

Oil and Gas Movement, Storage & Marine Terminal Operation course aims to provide participants with knowledge on the crude oil value chain, terminal management, the ship/shore interface, safety and emergency procedures, and the international regulations and requirement for oil and gas marine terminals. Additionally, the program will present an overview of methods of gauging tanks, flow metering, liquefied gas handling principles on the ship and in the terminal, oil tankers (crude & products), gas carriers (LNG / LPG), as well as planning and delivery operations, the terminology used during cargo transfer operations to enhance the ship/shore communication.


By attending this highly interactive programme, delegates will:

  • Gain an overview of the oil movements and storage operations, marine terminals and oil plants.
  • Acquire knowledge of oil and gas value chain,
  • Help their companies improve profitability by eliminating production losses due to insufficient planning.
  • Discuss the different vessel operations in the oil & gas marine terminal, such as oil tankers (crude & product) and gas carriers (LNG / LPG)
  • Develop good terminal management skills and employ various terminal support operations such as berthing support, cargo transfer support, emergency response and vessel departure support
  • Familiarize industry professionals with international regulations and requirements for oil and gas marine terminals, ship vetting, ship/shore interface and safety and emergency procedures.
  • Understand the Custody Transfer of the cargo, including the measurements, sampling, analysis, calculation, and cargo documentation.


The seminar is designed for:

All personnel engaged with Marine Terminal Management, production planning, oil movement, loading operations, Supply chain management, supply scheduling, trading operations, shipping, storage supervision, production analysis, Hydrocarbon accounting/allocation, marine operations scheduling, inventory analysis and demand control.

As well as engineering, this training session will also be suitable for business, sales, technical, and scientific.


Oil Movement, Storage & Loading is a hands on, stimulating learning experience. The programme will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment.
To ensure the concepts introduced during the programme are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentation, open discussion, case studies, and group work.

Attendees will have the opportunity to develop personal competencies and build up expert knowledge of Oil Movement, Storage & Tank Farm Handling in a range of equipment.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
