Gas Facilities Program for New Hires
The emphasis of this course is on gas production facilities from the wellhead to the delivery of specification gas and recovered liquid products to their respective disposition points. Practical operating problems will also be covered including hydrates, multiphase flow issues, corrosion, etc. Process safety and environmental concerns will be embedded throughout the program content. This course is offered on an in-house basis only.
By the end of this course participants will learn how to:
- Select and evaluate processes and equipment used to transport and process natural gas and associated liquids in order to meet sales, re-injection or disposal specifications.
- Apply physical and thermodynamic property correlations and principles to the design and evaluation of gas production and processing facilities.
- Perform equipment sizing calculations for major gas handling facility equipment.
- Evaluate processing configurations for different applications.
- Recognize and develop solutions to operating problems in gas production facilities.
