THE GAS PROCESSING PROGRESSION
overs equipment and processes primarily focused on the handling of natural gas and its associated liquids. Main topics covered include fundamentals, natural gas characterization, phase behavior, vapor-liquid equilibrium, basic thermodynamics, and water-hydrocarbon behavior, as well as all the key equipment to process natural gas.

About the course
This course emphasizes process selection, practical operating issues, technical fundamentals, and integration of the sweetening facilities into the overall scheme of gas processing. Sulfur recovery and tail gas processes are also covered, including standard Claus configurations, SuperClaus, EuroClaus, SCOT, etc. Special design and operation topics, such as trace sulfur compound handling and the importance of H2S:CO2 ratio, are covered as well. Related topics reviewed during the course include liquid product treating, corrosion, materials selection, and NACE requirements.
Production and processing personnel involved with natural gas treating and sulfur recovery, requiring an understanding of the principles of these process operations. This course is for facilities engineers, process engineers, operations personnel, and field supervisors, as well as others who select, design, install, evaluate, or operate gas sweetening and sulfur recovery facilities.
