Course Objectives
This is an introductory course. Upon the su cc essful completion of this course, you will have a complete and up-to-date overview of gas conditioning and processing technology, including product specifications and the processes available to condition the gas to meet these requirements. You will understand the nature and purpose of key gas processing operations, and how the individual operations are integrated into plants to process diverse feed streams received from gas fields around the world. You will gain a working knowledge of the major processes for Dehydration, Acid Gas Removal (Gas Sweetening), Hydrocarbon Dewpoint Control (HCDP Control), LPG Production, NGL Recovery and Separation (Fractionation), Sulphur Recovery and Tail Gas Clean-up. You will also learn the basic vocabulary unique to the industry and the key physical and chemical properties of natural gas constituents. You will also learn the important considerations of the design and selection of key process equipment including Separators, Heat Exchangers, Pumps, Compressors, Valves and Towers.

Furthermore, in relation to Natural Gas Processing, participants will learn:

•  Basic properties of hydrocarbon gases and the behaviour of water-hydrocarbon systems.

•  How to calculate system energy changes.

•  Fundamentals of fluid flow and heat transfer.

•  Design and operational aspects of process control systems, separation equipment, pumping and compression facilities, and absorption and fractionation facilities.

•  Methods used fro dehydrating natural gas.
