Professional Development (Industrial Processes)

We offer training in a variety of Industrial and Technical skills training programmes inside and outside of the oil and gas industry, all delivered by Kenson’s highly trained and experienced lecturers and coaches.

Any of these programmes can be customized for group or organization’s specific purposes.


At the end of this programme the candidate will be able to use and understand corrosion prevention products. As such the corrosion of metals can be prevented if the contact between metal and air is cut off. This is done in a number of ways and this will be identified during training.


This short programme presents a generic explanation of handover procedures for products and assets in the oil and gas industry. It seeks to describe the relevant and basic structure of handover procedures (written or oral), together with the contents and highlights that the handover must properly depict.

The programme also seeks to accentuate and study the importance of good record keeping practices as it relates to handing over. Students will be assessed using a combination of written exams and a written handover.


High Pressure Water Washing is a job specific short programme designed to train individuals on the safe and correct use of High Pressure Power Washers and application of power washing to specific jobs.


This training programme provides an extensive overview of all aspects of pigging operations. During the two (2) scheduled days, participants perform various activities to increase and enhance their knowledge on pigging operations. The syllabus includes both hands-on and classroom instruction.


Technical report writing is a five-day programme that is intended to give participants approaches and tools to develop and prepare technical reports. At the end of the programme participants will be able to:

  • Understand formatting in technical report writing
  • Identify the users of the report
  • Determine the need for illustration in technical reports
  • Write a technical report
  • Critique and improve on technical reports


Students will be taught:

  • Symbols used on the instrument drawings
  • Instrument tubing benders (1/4”, 3/8” and 1/2”) and Tubing cutter, and given an explanation of the significance of the wall thickness of the tubing and how to determine this from the Well control panel drawing.
  • The function of the Shuttle valve on the instrument air supply line.
  • The outcomes when the 3WNC Push to reset versa is pushed and held in.
  • To adjust regulators to establish (a) Panel supply pressure, (b) Set pressure on the Start-up and Primary pumps.
  • The function of the Volume bottle and the flow control mechanism which comprise the “Adjustable time delay”.
  • How to open the SSV in the absence of pilot control pressure
  • To understand that the idea of establishing Pilot Control Pressure is to keep the Surface Safety valve (SSV) open.
  • How “In service” pilots are tested
  • How PSH/L pressures are established using a range chart and how PSHL settings are determined.
  • Using the Well Control Pressure diagram how ESD pressure is established
  • To observe the operation of the Hydraulic dump valve whenever ESD pressure is lost.
  • The importance of the K1 valve as a means of preventing the return of hydraulic oil to the reservoir in the event of the loss of ESD pressure.
  • How to switch a well from the Primary Manifold to the start-up manifold and the significance of doing so.
  • Why the Shut-down valve on the Christmas tree is opened before the SSV
  • The significance of each gauge on the Well control panel.
