Length: 3 Days
Why should you choose TONEX for Condensate Recovery Unit and Gas Compressor Training?
Condensate Recovery Unit and Gas Compressor Training will provide opportunities for the trainees to get familiar with the fundamentals and prac¬tical aspects of natural gas processing. Further, the course will acquaint the trainees intensely with the most recent technologies applied in the field of condensate recovery & fractionation through delivering real-life case studies to achieve marketable products that meet desired product specifications.
Emphasis is placed on offering plant operating personnel an improved understanding of the condensate recovery & fractionation techniques and equipment used.
Typical equipment and facilities that are found in typical natural gas processing operations will also be discussed including compressors, vessels, relief, flare and safety systems. This improved understanding of plant process operations and effective process plant surveillance techniques will lead to an increased ability to achieve optimum, economical operating performance.
TRAINING OBJECTIVES AND BENEFITS:
By the end of the training course, the participants should be able to:
• Demonstrate knowledge and under¬standing of the principles of natural gas industry.
• Select and implement most adequate techniques for condensate recovery & fractionation.
• Relate the gained knowledge in the area of natural gas utilization to real-life cases.
• Apply troubleshooting to technical dif¬ficulties encountered in the field of specialization.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The program is ideal for personnel involved in gas plant process operations, troubleshooting, process engineering, and technical services as well as others providing services to the gas industry, should also find this program beneficial.
A highly interactive combination of lecture and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information, knowledge and experience transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody finding the right answers. The attendants will also be encouraged to raise more of their own questions and to share developing the right answers using their own analysis and experience.
