The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AlChE) will facilitate 'The Keys to Managing a Capital Project Successfully' and 'Spreadsheet Problem-solving for Chemical Engineers' workshops at MEPEC 2017.
MEPEC 2017, the Middle East’s definitive event for process engineers, takes place under the patronage of HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, during 9-11 October 2017 at the Bahrain International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
AIChE is the world's leading organisation for chemical engineering professionals, with more than 50,000 members from over 100 countries. AIChE's vision is to provide value as the global leader of the chemical engineering profession, the life-long centre for professional and personal growth, and security, of chemical engineers, and the foremost catalyst in applying chemical engineering expertise to meet societal needs.
The workshops facilitated by the AIChE Academy at MEPEC will place particular emphasis on detailed planning, monitoring and controlling of a capital project.
“The number of capital projects scheduled in the GCC over the next few years are of critical importance to the economic diversification of the petroleum and downstream sectors,” says Dr Halim Hamid Redhwi, MEPEC 2017 chairman.
“The use of quantitative risk analysis as the basis of cost and schedule contingency will contribute as a strategic cornerstone for their successful realisation” Dr Redhwi added.
Participants can join David Clough – chemical engineer and Excel expert – and develop skills and techniques outside of the usual experience of engineers.
‘The Keys to Managing a Capital Project Successfully’ and ‘Spreadsheet Problem-solving for Chemical Engineers’ will run concurrently from 09:00 to 17:00 on 10th and 11th October 2017 at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre.
