    Jonie Anak Maja Malaysia With regards to my experience in Oil and Gas Industry, this is one of the excellent course, the contents , the case studies and underpinning knowledge is tested by means of test assessment. Off course, oil and gas process integrated facilities, safety is more stringent. The median for processing is crude, condensate and gas, these median do have more work industrialize hazards, safety barriers, and recovery measures. Thank you ALISON for providing this free course online. I will enroll myself with ALISON and this will brighten for my next job application in the future.
