Gas Processing Operation

This short course is designed to give the attendants the fundamentals of natural gas and its by‐products conditioning and processing including some of the details of the process. Typical equipment and facilities that are found in typical natural gas processing operations will also be discussed. Hands on process simulation exercises.

The course covers topics such as origins, properties, uses, advantages and specifications of natural gas; Thermodynamics of gases and liquids; Physical properties, phase equilibrium and vapour liquid equilibrium calculations; Natural gas processing plant basics; Hydrates; Inhibitors; Gas and Glycol dehydration; Acid gas treating and Gas sweetening processes; Dew point control and natural gas liquids recovery; Condensate stabilisation; Basic principles of LNG plants; Principles and operation of refrigeration systems and liquefaction of natural gas to make LNG; Multi‐stage refrigeration and mixed refrigerant units; Gas Plant Process Dynamics and the Control of Critical Loops

  • Gain a deep knowledge of the properties, specifications and end uses of natural gas.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of typical natural gas processing operations, including: Dehydration, acid gas removal (gas sweetening), hydrocarbon dew point control, recovery of ethane, LPG production, propane and NGL (natural gas liquids), and Sulfur recovery
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
  • Gain a deeper knowledge of the different equipment and facilities found in natural gas processing plants.

· Learn about fundamentals of gas transportation and distribution.

  • Know the different problems posed by the undesirable components present in natural gas well effluent and the required treatments.
  • Know the gas treatment and liquefaction processes, their typical operating conditions, and the influence of each operating parameter.
  • Be able to perform hand calculations for summary design of main equipment used for gas processing.
  • Know the main operating problems encountered in gas processing and conditioning and the main technical solutions.
  • Know how to apply physical and thermodynamic property correlations and principles to the design and evaluation of gas production and processing facilities.
  • Acquire a deep understanding of the thermodynamics applied to the gas processing facilities
  • Know the technology and operating rules of the static equipment and rotating machinery used in the gas production facilities

This training course uses both conventional and non-traditional techniques. It utilises small group and facilitated plenary discussions as well as instruction to explore key concepts, models, tools and techniques. Hands-on exercises and case studies are used to practice the application of knowledge and use of skills. Structured reviews provide the opportunity to consider how the learning can be applied to the delegates’ own work.
