Potable Water System

Potable water for human consumption has to comply with high quality standards regarding its chemistry, physics and hygiene. These standards are defined globally by the potable water standards issued by WHO (World Health Organization) as well as similar individual standards in United States, Canada and Europe.

This course will explore the base knowledge necessary for the safe operation and management of equipment associated with potable water systems in oil and gas plants.

The course emphasizes the importance of monitoring and controlling the potable water system for the safe and efficient operation of the entire plant as well as the welfare and safety of those who might utilize the system.
