Background fundamentals of Natural Gas Transmission and Processing, lectured by an industry expert, combined with hands-on process simulation exercises
Review the properties of natural gas, basic equations, PVT behavior, vapor-liquid equilibria, and gas hydrates. Learn the basics of natural gas transmission and processing as well as the recent advances and new opportunities for solving current gas transmission and processing problems. Discuss key considerations to be taken into account for any natural gas field project in development. Acquire good simulation practices though the guided creation of simulation cases of increasing complexity. Understand and Discover optimization ways for the several common units found in the natural gas processing industry, using simulation exercises. Incorporate the necessary know-how in steady state process simulation that should allow you to afford the design and operation of any possible future process in the natural gas and associated industries. Transform current processes into more competitive ones by an optimal use of process simulators. Reduce the execution time of projects
Morning lectures on the background fundamentals of natural gas transmission and processing will be lectured by Saeid Mokhatab, one of the most recognizable names in the natural gas community through his contributions to advancing the technologies in the natural gas processing industry. He is the co-author of the Elseviers Handbook of Natural Gas Transmission & Processing, which has been very well received by professionals in the natural gas industry and academia worldwide. A copy of the handbook will be handed over to the attendees, as it will be used as the basis for the course.
