Chemical Engineering

Oil and Gas Field Operations Series program: Module 2

Introduction

Module 2 of the Oil and Gas Field Operations series program discusses natural gas production and processing, including the relationships between temperature, pressure and volume. Procedures linked to gas hydrate handling and prevention will be covered in detail. Students will also become familiar with gas line heaters, liquid-gas separation, dehydration, gas sweetening, condensate stabilization, wastewater treatment, sulphur production, hydrocarbon separation and sampling procedures of liquids and gas


Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain gas field operations, gas production, and field and plant processing of natural gas
  • Identify the types of heat exchangers and their uses in natural gas production and processing
  • Describe field production equipment, its design and operation, and specific maintenance procedures
  • Explain in detail the causal conditions, the hazards involved, and the prevention and handling of natural gas hydrates
  • Demonstrate the flow and treatment of natural gas through a typical gas plant including inlet separation, sweetening, dehydration, sulfur recovery, condensate stabilization, water treatment, and hydrocarbon separation and handling

 


Target Audience
  • Petroleum engineers
  • Production engineers
  • Project engineers
  • Field Operators
  • Chemical engineers
  • Production facilities supervisors
