Title: Gas Booster Station Operations
Start Date: 16 January, 2023 End Date: 20 January 2023
Venue: Munich, Germany
In any of the 5 star hotel. Exact venue will be informed soon.
Throughout this course, sessions will provide opportunities for the trainees to get familiar with the fundamentals and practical aspects of Gas booster station operation. Further, the course will acquaint the trainees intensely with the most recent technologies applied in the field of Gas compressor and Gas Turbine 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 Booster station operation techniques and equipment used and finally detailed understanding of gas treatment process.
Typical equipment and facilities that are found in typical natural gas processing operations will also be discussed including compressors, vessels, and 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.
By the end of the training course, the participants should be able to:
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 lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody find the right answers. You will also be encouraged to raise your own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using your own analysis and experiences. Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available on daily basis to examine the effectiveness of delivering the course.
Very useful Course Materials will be given.
