About the course
This is a 5-day, LNG-industry version of our popular OT-1 Gas Production/Processing for Operations and Maintenance course, with expanded coverage on refrigeration, liquefaction, and utilities. The course includes in-depth information on basic LNG mixed refrigerant processing. Instructors will explain contaminant removal processes employed in LNG processes. Relevant details of the APCI LNG liquefaction processes are described. Class exercises/problems focus on application of theory to operational trends, so operators can understand their processes and become proficient at identifying issues and troubleshooting problems before production suffers. Course content is customizable to client needs.
Designed For
LNG facility operators who require a working knowledge of the various processes used in production fluid conditioning and processing, including the common operational difficulties that may arise and operational tactics used to resolve them. Also suitable for maintenance technicians, supervisors, and managers, as well as other non-engineering personnel who would benefit from an understanding of gas processing techniques that can be applied in their daily work activities.
