This 5-day, LNG facilities course provides an overview of field operations, and an in-depth review of the in-plant equipment and processes. The course includes the two most common types of LNG liquefaction processes, the AP-C3MR and ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade Process. Class exercises/problems focus on the application of theory to operational trends, so operators can understand their processes and become more proficient at identifying issues and troubleshooting problems before production suffers. Course content is customizable to client needs at no additional cost.
"The real problem solutions as exercises in the class was very helpful to understand the application. Very good instructor and material. Definitely was good material to understand the LNG process." - Participant, Mexico
DR. FRANK E. ASHFORD has over 50 years' experience in oil and gas reservoir engineering, downhole and surface design and operations, as well as oil and gas conditioning and producing facilities. He has been with PetroSkills since 1988 and has worked extensively in most energy producing countries throughout the world. He provides instruction fluently in either English, Spanish, or Portuguese based on material originally prepared in English or Spanish, but presented in the native language requested. He worked with Gulf Research (GR&DC) in Houston, Texas where he developed many reservoir engineering laboratory techniques for the determination of applicable oil/gas/water relative permeability correlations, and choke performance prediction techniques still in application today. Previously, Dr. Ashford was a Professor of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering at the Central University of Venezuela in Caracas, where he taught various courses in natural gas engineering technology. He was a founder of the Petroleum Engineering Department in INTEVEP, the research Institute for PDVSA (Venezuela). He was a participant in the initial gas lift optimization operations held in Venezuela, and developed many field, and numerical techniques and correlations for downhole, and surface choke performance with Otis Engineering (US, and Venezuela), and Compania Shell de Venezuela (CSV). He has authored technical articles published in World Oil, JPT, SPE, Intevep Pub., PDVSA, Pacific Oil World, AAPG, SPELAC, and GPA. He holds a BS (1961) and MS (1963) in Petroleum Engineering and a PhD in Engineering Sciences (1970) from the University of Oklahoma. He was one of Dr. John M. Campbell's graduate students from 1962-1968, and participated in the initial data collection and organization for the original John M. Campbell technical textbooks Gas Conditioning and Processing, Volumes I and II. These books provided the basis for a worldwide and extensive training organization initiated by Dr. John M. Campbell during the late1960's, and are still applied by PetroSkills | John M. Campbell for worldwide engineering training to this date.
MR. JOHN C. BOURDON has more than 29 years' experience in hydrocarbon processing and specializes in sulfur recovery processes for the petroleum refining industry. Mr. Bourdon has been involved in the development of several sulfur-related technologies and mechanical innovations, has authored several papers and made presentations worldwide. He has experience with several E&C firms including extensive start-up and troubleshooting activities. He consults for both North American and international clients. He is a registered professional engineer and member of Chi Epsilon Sigma Honor Society. Mr. Bourdon is fluent in English and Spanish. Mr. Bourdon has a BS in Chemical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and advanced degrees in other fields.
MRS. KINDRA SNOW-MCGREGOR is the Technical Director of Oil and Gas Processing with PetroSkills | John M Campbell. She has a master's and bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering and Petroleum Refining from the Colorado School of Mines, and over 22 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. She has served as the technical lead on several significant projects in the industry for clients such as BP, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Occidental, QatarGas, and XTO. Mrs. Snow-McGregor has been active in the gas processing / midstream industry for many years and is on the Board of Directors for the GPSA. In addition, she serves on the GPSA Engineering Data Book Editorial Review Board. She has published 9 technical papers at international conferences and is a coinventor on two technology patents in the gas processing industry.
