Course Description 

There are a number of sources from which pressure is generated in an oil and gas facility. In all instances, the equipment designed to maintain containment of materials has a maximum pressure design rating, which if exceeded can lead to catastrophic consequences.

Pressure relief devices are therefore an important line of defence in preventing such occurrences.
