The Oxford Princeton Programme Develops a Comprehensive Petrochemical Terminology Course

To address the industry’s complex jargon and technical terms, the course provides a key to simplify their meanings

PRINCETON, NJ (PRWEB) February 11, 2005 -- The Oxford Princeton Programme, the world’s leading provider of training solutions to the energy, commodity and derivatives industries, announces its newest course Petrochemical Terminology – A Non-Technical Overview. Debuting in London, UK, the course covers the industry’s jargon and technical language in simple terms.

“The course targets the non-technical professionals who have yet to understand the petrochemical industry’s terminology and are a critical part of the industry’s success,” explains Richard Sleep, course director and global director of Nexant’s ChemSystems Online and Petroleum and Petrochemical Economic programs. “For many of these individuals the jargon acts as a barrier to job satisfaction and being effective in their work. As there is no need for this, this course will empower delegates to work within the industry with ease by supplying them with a simple explanation of how petrochemicals are named, made and what they are used for.”

Course director, Richard Sleep, is the global director of Nexant’s ChemSystems Online and Petroleum and Petrochemical Economic (PPE) programs. He has over 25 years experience in the petrochemical industry doing production, business management, trading and consulting. Prior to joining ChemSystems in 1994, he had been a trader with Metallgesellschaft Petrochemicals Corp. He spent 12 years with BP Chemicals LTD in a variety of roles, initially in production as a mechanical engineer working at steam crackers in Baglan Bay and Grangemouth and subsequently in commercial roles, including five years as a propylene product manager. Prior to joining BP Chemicals he worked for ICI as an engineer on polyethylene and Perspex plants.

“The petrochemical industry relies on effective channels of communication. A simple misunderstanding could be costly," says Clara Lippert, president and CEO of The Oxford Princeton Programme, Inc. "This course helps petrochemical employees become more productive and successful in each person's day-to-day work experience."

Petrochemical Terminology – A Non-Technical Overview is one-day comprehensive course. The first scheduled date will be March 8, 2005 in London, UK.
