Course summary
Length: 5 days
Location: Houston
Provider: PetroSkills plus
Course type: Open / Scheduled

Course Description

Course Description
This full 5-day course covers sweet gas processing and NGL extraction, using a commercial simulator to perform calculations. A basic working knowledge of the commercial process simulation package used (generally UNISIM) is suggested to achieve the course learning objectives. Volumes 1 and 2 of the John M. Campbell textbooks, Gas Conditioning and Processing, are the basis for the material presented, coupled with a 'red thread' comprehensive exercise based on a typical gas processing facility (can be applied to onshore or offshore facilities). The exercise is developed in stages as the material is covered. Participants will develop a comprehensive process simulation that includes a dew point control process, a mechanical refrigeration process with economizers, hydrate inhibition using MEG, and NGL liquid product stabilization with recycle.
NOTE: The individual exercises include condensed gas processing fundamentals drawn from the internationally famous Campbell Gas Books Vols. 1 & 2.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Engineers that require practical in-depth training on natural gas processing and NGL recovery processes, with emphasis on the use and benefits of a simulation package.
