Single Buoy Mooring & Crude Oil Terminal Operations
Course Objective

On successful completion of the course, the participants will acquire knowledge of working principles, safe work practices and inspection/ survey of all major systems and equipment relating to operation of:

  • Single Buoy Mooring (SBM) and
  • Crude Oil Terminal
Four days

About the course

With the increased capacities of crude tankers matching the import of the larger parcel sizes to meet the rising demand for downstream products and also to take advantage of economies of scale, SBM has emerged as the preferred option – since it does not necessitate deep water port development. SBM and large crude storage capacity ashore coupled with a terminal or pumping station exporting to refinery are a commonly deployed, commercially viable combination.

This course aims to enhance the knowledge and understanding of operators, supervisors and engineers engaged in operation, inspection and maintenance of SBM and crude storage and export terminals and the associated systems and equipment.


Technicians or diploma or graduate mechanical engineers with: i) a minimum experience of three years in crude oil export terminal operations and ii) proficiency in English language.
