  • Course Content
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.

The course provides both core and foundation competencies in the areas of gas conditioning and processing. It provides a review of both onshore and offshore operations, and takes a systems approach to walk through engineering fundamentals and gas processing unit and equipment operations. Both hands-on methods and computer-aided analysis are applied to examine sensitivities of technical decisions. The approaches used are applicable to both new designs, and to troubleshooting current facilities operations.

Over 36,000 attendees have taken our G-4 program, considered by many to be the most practical and comprehensive course in the oil and gas industry.
