Those involved in refinery process engineering, unit operations, research and development, sales and refinery technical service. Process engineers from design and construction companies as well as those who provide products and services to the petroleum refining industry will also find the course very useful and informative
This course is designed to provide participants with an up – to – date overview of gas conditioning and processing technology. This includes product specification and the processes available to condition the gas in order to meet the required specification
Participants will learn the key physical and chemical properties of natural gas components as well as major processes such as Dehydration, Gas Sweetening, Hydrocarbon Dewpoint Control (HCDP Control), LPG Recovery and Fractionation, Sulphur Recovery and Tail Gas Clean-up.
Also to be covered during the course are the factors to consider in designing and selecting the major process equipment such as the Separator/Fractionator.
Design and operation of process control systems, separator, absorption and fractionation facilities will be taught as well.
ASPEN HYSYS is the leading plant design and simulation tool for the energy industry. It is used for process optimization in design and operations in oil & gas processes. And it accelerates the ability of companies to bring new plants and designs to market in record time. Learn to build, navigate and optimize process simulations using Aspen HYSYS. Participants will learn the efficient use of different HYSYS functions to build steady state process simulations
