2018-Jan 10th HGPA MORNING TRAINING: "Economics and Technical Basis for Gas Processing"

This event is currently full.
 Registration is closed for this event
Sign up today as this overview class typically sells out! This half-day session provides an overview of the gas processing industry and is an excellent course for those new to our industry or those that are proficient in a particular area but are lacking in the overall scope of the industry or those who want a great refresher course.


Economic and Technical Basis for Gas Processing

This half-day session surveys current trends in natural gas production and delivery and examines the economic and technical basis for profitable gas processing and conditioning. This interactive training, the first of four break-out sessions of last November's "Overview of Gas Processing" includes:

  • Natural Gas Sources - Conventional, Shale and Tight Gas, etc.
  • Gas Characteristics - Lean, Rich, Associated, etc. 
  • Gas Contaminants - Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, etc. 
  • Gas Specifications - Gathering System, Plant and Pipeline 
  • Gas Behavior - Process selection and operating conditions 
  • Plant Economics - Project planning and decision drivers

As a course wrap up, a broad survey of the gas processing technologies currently in use will be covered as an introduction to the three remaining morning training sessions (February, March and May, 2018).
