ASTM International training courses in the area of petroleum standardization are offered in the Gulf Cooperation Council, Middle East and Asia. Since 2003, the Arabian Fuels Technology Center has been presenting "Aviation Fuels: Specifications and Test Methods" and "Transportation Fuels Technology: Gasoline, Diesel and Aviation Fuels" to interested participants throughout the region.

The ASTM aviation fuels class examines how specifications are used to control the quality of aviation fuels and why they affect product performance and availability. Jet engine and jet fuel descriptions, hydrocarbon types, additives and fuel handling and transportation are among the subjects covered in the aviation fuel course. The AFTC has presented "Aviation Fuels" in Bahrain, Dubai and Qatar.

The AFTC has given the ASTM transportation fuels course for a group from the Qatar Jet Fuel Company and the Woqod Company in Doha, Qatar, as well as to supervisors from the Saudi Aramco Eastern Region Distribution Department in Dharan City, Saudi Arabia.

In addition, the AFTC assisted with the presentation of "Crude Oil: Sampling, Testing and Evaluation," taught by Harry N. Giles, manager, crude oil quality programs, U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Petroleum Reserves and by Clifford O. Mills, retired from ConocoPhillips in Bahrain.

The AFTC was established by Ubaidallah S. Alghamdi, a longtime member of ASTM International Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants. The mission of the AFTC is to work with clients to promote and sustain the awareness and importance of the quality and safety of transportation fuels during their manufacture and blending, transportation, storage, handling and use to ensure that clean, dry and on-specification fuels are delivered to end users.
