Duration: 3 days
Instructor(s): Paul Carmody, Mahmood Moshfeghian, Wes Wright
|This course emphasizes the effect of carbon dioxide on the selection and operation of equipment (separators, compressors, and dehydrators), as well as sweetening process equipment. This program, first introduced in 1985, assists those working with carbon dioxide or high carbon dioxide content natural gas. This course is particularly applicable to those persons who operate and/or design enhanced oil recovery (EOR) facilities using CO2 as a miscible agent. Physical and thermodynamic property data for carbon dioxide/natural gas mixtures are discussed. Calculations are performed to illustrate principles and techniques. An extra day will be added to this course if a plant tour is available (Midland public course sessions, or in-house sessions only).|
Engineers and senior operating personnel involved with carbon dioxide/natural gas/CO2 EOR systems.
You Will Learn:
MR. PAUL A. CARMODY has more than 34 years of experience in the petroleum industry. During his 32 years with Hess Corporation and its predecessor, Amerada Hess Corporation, Mr. Carmody has been involved in nearly all aspects of oil and gas engineering from the reservoir sand face through the outlet of gas plants. He is a registered Professional Engineer in North Dakota where his experience includes Bakken oil development, production engineering, pipelines, and compressor station installations. West Texas experience includes CO2 EOR flood gas gathering, CO2 pipelines, and gas plant engineering. His gas plant experience includes three expansions of a CO2 Gas plant, cryogenic gas plants, and lean oil plant processes where he has supplies process and design engineering services. He has served as a board member of the CO2 Conference in Midland. Mr. Carmody graduated from the University of Connecticut with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
DR. MAHMOOD MOSHFEGHIAN is a Senior Technical Advisor and Senior Instructor for PetroSkills. He is the author of most Tips of the Month and develops technical software for PetroSkills. He has 40 years' teaching experience in universities as well as for oil and gas industries. Dr. Moshfeghian joined John M. Campbell & Co. in 1990 as a part time consultant and then as full time instructor/consultant in 2005. Dr. Moshfeghian was Professor of Chemical Engineering at Shiraz University. Dr. Moshfeghian is a senior member of AIChE and has published more than 125 technical papers on thermodynamic properties and process engineering. Dr. Moshfeghian has presented invited papers at international conferences. He is a member of the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Oil, Gas, and Coal Technology. He holds a BS (74), an MS (75) and a PhD (78) in Chemical Engineering, all from Oklahoma State University.
MR. WES WRIGHT has 32 years' experience in oil and gas producing facilities. Mr. Wright began teaching with PetroSkills in 2004 where he has been delivering courses in CO2 Surface Facilities, Oil and Gas Processing and Operator Training world-wide. Previously, Mr. Wright was the lead on-site engineer at the Weyburn CO2 Miscible flood where he was closely involved in the development, design, construction, start-up and operations. Through the 1980's, Mr. Wright performed contract research at the University of Calgary in Enhanced Oil Recovery and was a consultant on a wide range of sweet and sour oil and gas projects throughout Western Canada. Mr. Wright graduated in 1983 with a BSc in Engineering from the University of Calgary. He is a Professional Engineer in Alberta, Canada and is a member of the SPE. He has been published in the ASME-OMAE, CSCE, IAHR, and in Carbon Sequestration and Related Technologies (Wiley, 2011).
