Oil-in-Water Analysis by IR Absorption

This course introduces the latest UK DECC guidelines for the offshore measurement of oil-in-water. Learning is through classroom theory sessions and laboratory hands-on analysis of samples by the DECC IR method. A certificate is issued to delegates on successful completion of the course.

Attendees are required to bring their own safety shoes (they must comply with current laboratory HSE legislation). Safety glasses, lab coats and gloves can be provided on the day.

Learning Objectives

One of the main factors leading to inefficient system operation is the lack of accurate performance data.

This training course is designed to provide attendees with the theory and practice of how to monitor oil-in-water content in produced water samples. This is achieved by using industry standard infra-red analysis equipment and laboratory methods, in compliance with the current DECC guidelines for offshore oil and gas facilities located in the UKCS.

Key objectives of the course include:

  • Understanding when, where and how to take good quality samples, including recommendations for labelling and preservation.
  • How to calibrate instruments using prepared standards.
  • Determination of an unknown quantity of oil-in-water using IR absorption techniques and the generation of a calibration curve for reporting purposes.

Intended Audience (Industry/Role)

This one day course is suitable for anyone who may be required to measure oil-in-water levels, and their supervisors.
