Production Operations

Foundation Heat Transfer Equipment


This course reviews the selection, basic design, and operation of heat transfer equipment commonly used in the oil and gas industry with focus on E and P production facilities. Heat transfer equipment discussed will include shell and tube exchangers, compact heat exchangers, brazed aluminum exchangers, air coolers, and fired equipment (fire tube and direct-fired).


By the end of this course participants will learn:

  • How to select the correct heat transfer equipment for an application with reference to typical facility process flow diagrams
  • How to apply heat transfer principles to design and specify heat transfer equipment
  • How to evaluate the performance of heat transfer equipment and recommend solutions to problems
  • About the typical instrumentation and control schemes used by the various types of heat transfer equipment
