OIL & GAS PROCESSING FACILITIES

DURATION

5 Days

 DESIGNED FOR

Process/facilities engineers, senior operating personnel, and production chemists. Wide-ranging skills for design, operation and troubleshooting of oil and water production equipment.

 

YOU WILL LEARN

·         Well inflow performance and its impact on processing facilities

·         About oil, gas, and water compositions and properties needed for equipment selection and sizing

·         How to select and evaluate processes and equipment used to meet sales or disposal specifications

·         How to apply physical and thermodynamic property correlations and principles to the design and evaluation of oil production and processing facilities

·         How to perform equipment sizing calculations for major production facility separation equipment

·         How to evaluate processing configurations for different applications

·         How to recognize and develop solutions to operating problems in oil/water processing facilities

ABOUT THE COURSE

The emphasis of this course is on oil production facilities – from the wellhead to the delivery of a specification crude oil product to the refinery. Both onshore and offshore facilities will be discussed. Produced water treating and water injection systems are also covered. Solution gas handling processes and equipment will be discussed as well, though at a relatively high level. In addition to the engineering aspects of oil production facilities, practical operating problems will also be covered including emulsion treatment, sand handling, dealing with wax and asphaltenes, etc. Exercises requiring calculations are utilized throughout the course. The course is intended to be complementary to the G-4 Gas Conditioning and Processing course which is focused on the gas handling side of the upstream oil and gas facilities area.
