This five-day short course reviews the physical, chemical, and engineering principles used to understand the processing of natural gas and its by-products. Topics include: physical properties, phase equilibria and vapour liquid equilibrium calculations, water-hydrocarbon systems and natural gas dehydration, natural gas gathering and plant inlet separation, sour natural gas treating/sweetening, dew point control and NGL liquid recovery, acid gas compression and injection, sulfur recovery. Participants include: new engineering graduates and technologists who need to develop an understanding of natural gas processing principles and technology; professionals who have been working in industry but are new to natural gas processing; or professionals who are familiar with natural gas processing, but are unfamiliar with how process simulators can be used to improve plant design and optimize plant profitability.
This short course provides a general overview of natural gas processing and emphasizes the design and operation of gas plants and related facilities.
