Gas Conditioning and Processing: G-4


The Campbell Gas Course has been the standard of the industry for more than 46 years. Over 36,000 engineers have attended our G-4 program, considered by many to be the most practical and comprehensive course in the oil and gas industry. Both hand-methods and computer-aided analysis are used to examine sensitivities of technical decisions. To enhance the learning process, about 30 problems will be assigned, reviewed, and discussed throughout the course. Problems will be solved individually and in teams.

Gas Conditioning & Processing-LNG Emphasis: G-4 LNG


This is the LNG-industry version of our popular G-4 course, with expanded coverage of refrigeration and LNG technologies. The course includes in-depth information on basic LNG gas conditioning and processing. In addition, instructors will explain the LNG supply chain that consists of four main links - natural gas exploration and production, liquefaction, shipping, receiving, and distribution. The course covers relevant details of both the mixed refrigerant (APCI) and cascade (ConocoPhillips) processes in LNG liquefaction. New liquefaction processes are addressed, such as mixed fluid cascade and dual nitrogen refrigeration cycles. Versions of this course have been taught in many of the world's base-load and peak-shaving LNG plants, such as Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Norway, Qatar, UK, and West Indies.

Overview of Gas Processing: G-2


G-2 is a versatile overview of the gas conditioning and processing industry. This course is designed for a broad audience and is participative and interactive, utilizing basic technical exercises and terminology to communicate key learning points. This course does not cover the technology and engineering principles in depth, and is only recommended for those needing an overview of the industry and common processes and equipment used.

Advanced Applications in Gas Processing: G-5


This full 5-day course covers sweet gas processing and NGL extraction, using a commercial simulator to perform calculations. A basic working knowledge of the commercial process simulation package used (generally UNISIM) is suggested to achieve the course learning objectives. Volumes 1 and 2 of the John M. Campbell textbooks, Gas Conditioning and Processing, are the basis for the material presented, coupled with a comprehensive exercise based on a typical gas processing facility (can be applied to onshore or offshore facilities). The exercise is developed in stages as the material is covered. Participants will develop a process simulation that includes a dew point control process, a mechanical refrigeration process with economizers, hydrate inhibition using MEG, and NGL liquid product stabilization with recycle.

LNG Short Course: Technology and the LNG Chain : G-29


This LNG Short Course is designed for participants requiring moderate technical coverage, coupled with information on LNG commerce and all parts of the LNG Value Chain. Over 5-days, the course covers technical LNG basics and facility operation topics, plus technical, design, and commercial issues. Selected exercises and syndicates are used to reinforce the main topics of LNG trade and technology. In-house versions are available with either increased technical and operational emphasis or increased project and development emphasis. More in-depth coverage for technical, production, and processing personnel is available in our 10-day course, G-4 LNG, Gas Conditioning and Processing - LNG emphasis.

Process Safety Engineering : PS-4


This course provides an overview of process safety engineering fundamentals for hydrocarbon processing facilities, with emphasis on the upstream oil and gas sector. The focus of this course is on the engineering/design aspects of Process Safety Management. Frequent reference will be made to historical incidents and recurring problem areas. Techniques for analyzing and mitigating process safety hazards applicable to oil and gas processing will also be reviewed. Integration of the concepts covered to achieve a measured approach to Process Safety Engineering is a key aim of this course as well. Exercises and group projects will be utilized to emphasize the key learning points.

Gas Treating and Sulfur Recovery: G-6


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.

Gas Conditioning & Processing: G4 VIRTUAL


The Campbell Gas Course has been the industry standard for more than 47 years, and is now available as a blended program. The first half of the material will be delivered virtually through PetroAcademy self-paced e-Learning. The second half will be delivered in the classroom during the 5-day face-to-face portion of the course. Participants must complete the e-Learning portion of the course before the classroom session begins.
