JCCP:Japan Cooperation Center, Petroleum

Program Components

Training Courses in Japan consist of classroom lectures given by specialists at JCCP Headquarters, hands-on training using simulators, and visits to oil companies, engineering companies, the offices of equipment manufacturers, plants, and refineries. The visits provide practical training through observation of various processes and discussions with experts.

Lectures and workshops by experts

In addition to lectures by experts in fields related to the oil industry, experts in their relevant fields in Japanese companies and research institutions are invited to give theoretical and practical lectures. Workshops are also held in line with the theme of each course, to provide interactive training through group discussions and presentations.


JCCP has simulators that run two types of DCS (distributed control systems). Each DCS is connected to a miniature plant to provide training in basic and applied process control and safety devices under a training environment that simulates an actual plant.


Using process models of dynamic simulations, participants can engage in simulated operations of representative refining process units, such as the CDU (crude oil distillation unit), FCC (fluid catalytic cracking unit), and R-FCC (residue oil fluid catalytic cracking unit).
The CAI Room is also equipped with a refinery LP model for training in optimal production planning and case studies of the engineering economics of various processes.

Onsite training at various companies, plants, refineries, and research institutions in Japan

Participants of programs in Japan have opportunities to visit manufacturing companies, plants and research institutions in Japan to receive lectures from experts, inspect actual machines on site, and in some cases gain hands-on experience on a trial basis. Through questions and answers and exchanges of views with working experts, they gain a deeper understanding of technologies and management systems. Visits are made to a wide range of companies and facilities, including oil companies, engineering companies, plant instrument manufacturers and national research institutions, in line with the theme of each course.
