OIL, GAS AND WATER SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT

OIL, GAS AND WATER SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT

Discipline: Production and Facilities engineering

Level: Basic/Intermediate

Duration: 5 days

Instructor: Jairo Balcacer

Purpose

This course provides an understanding of two and three-phase oil separation, design procedures for sizing them, methods for treating oil, various processes used to stabilize a crude oil condensate stream. It also presents reasons to remove acid components from the natural gas, conventional TEG dehydration, a method to size and design the glycol dehydration equipment, guidelines to select gas compressor and piping system. Finally, considerations about the equipment used to separate, treat, collected and disposed of wastewater along with procedures for designing a water treating system and its components., as well as equipment and sizing for removing solids and dissolved asses from produced water.

Designed

This course is addressed to production and facilities engineers involved in the oil, gas and water production operations.
