PTQI- Petroleum Training and Qualifying Institute

Technical Departments

The institute has taken the responsibility of providing the industry with quality technicians in different key areas. To live up to such a commitment, students are admitted according to very strict criteria. As an institute of training and qualifying, PTQI is committed to providing students with the necessary skills and technical know-how through quality training that would enable them to competently perform all job related tasks needed in the oil industry in Libya. In this respect, PTQI is devoted to harness a student centered approach that aims at creating a learning environment that facilitates self development and continuous improvement. To serve this purpose, there are currently 9 technical departments:

  • Drilling Department

    • • The Drilling Department aims at improving the quality of both the scientific and practical aspects of its curricula which include drilling technology equipment.
    • • Training at this department includes assembling, disassembling, maintenance, work preparations, and testing.
    • • The drilling fluid laboratory at this department is fully equipped with modern machinery and equipment.
    • • The department includes a full drilling Device (IDECO H 35) and is currently working on introducing off-shore drilling operations within its curriculum. This department also includes a complete drilling simulator (DS- 5000).
