Re-Injection of Water Formation and Water Surface Treatment Technologies and Field Practices

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is aimed at creating an understanding of WATER FORMATION RE-INJECTION AND WATER TREATMENT AND DISPOSAL. The course is designed to build up knowledge in the participant to understand the WATER RE-INJECTION process facilities design and Water treatment and disposal. The course studies in depth and in accordance to classic and new technology. Also the effect of Separation pressure is introduced using the engineering system concept of nodal analysis, and by using the classic flash calculations method. The calculations for pump specifications in the petroleum industry is treated in a formal and practical way.

 

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
