COURSE OVERVIEW

Natural Gas Industry began in early 1900 in the United States and it is still evolving. Natural Gas is high quality fuel and chemical feedstock; it plays a vital role in the industrial world and has become an important export for many countries. The development of the natural gas industry has been very much influenced by the physical characteristics of natural gas.

This Gas Processing & Conditioning training covers major technical aspects of gas processing and conditioning.  It includes a complete and up-to-date overview of gas conditioning and processing technology and provides a clear understanding of the equipment and processes used in common separation and gas treating systems. The training seminar will also cover gas dehydration, sweetening and gas processing operations and the integration between the individual processing operations, gathering, separation and final treatment systems for natural gas, as well as the concepts of export quality natural gas, field, and fiscal measurements error.

All of this will result in an increase of the effectiveness of the personnel, reduction of operation costs, and optimization of the performance of gas processing and conditioning.
