The Gas and Liquid Contracts that exist (or are being negotiated) will determine the objectives of the processes that you will have to incorporate into any new facility and how you have to operate any existing facility. There exists a variety of processes that will condition your Natural Gas and Hydrocarbon Liquids to satisfy the Contract requirements. The objective of this course is to make you aware of the options available to you so that you can evaluate all the processes that will satisfy your objective to determine which particular process is the best from a capitol cost and operating cost perspective.


Upon completion of this course, you will gain knowledge of the processes available to process your Natural Gas and Hydrocarbon Liquid Products.


This course is designed for project managers, plant managers, plant supervisors, technical staff, and contractor personnel involved in project planning, process selection and operation of Natural Gas Production. The greatest benefit arises from considering all the processes that will accomplish your process requirements to determine which one is the best for your particular application from a capital cost and operating cost perspective. You will also be able to see which processes are available to you to de-bottleneck or modify existing processes. The practical techniques and examples provide useful insights that are valuable at any stage of project execution and operation.
