Course Information

This natural gas short course aims to give deep knowledge to production and processing personnel involved with natural gas and associated liquids to acquaint or reacquaint themselves with gas conditioning and processing unit operations.

  • The selection and evaluation processes used to dehydrate natural gas, meet hydrocarbon dew point specifications and extract natural gas liquids
  • How to apply thermodynamic property correlations to the design and evaluation of gas processing facilities
  • Equipment sizing methods for major process equipment
  • To recognize and develop solutions to operating problems and control issues in gas processing facilities
